Friday Night Speedway

On Friday nights, hundreds of race fans descend on the Oaktree Arena in Somerset to cheer on The Somerset Rebels speedway team, for the last couple of weeks my son & i have been going along.

Speedway is motor sport in it’s rawest form, the bikes are 500cc, have fixed gears, no brakes, run on pure methanol and can accelerate from 0-60 in 3 seconds,

the races feature 4 riders & take place over 4 laps, it’s fast & furious stuff & we love it.
