DETAILS ON EACH TYPE OF ACTIVITY:

Wayne Carter Minitrack sessions
– also see TRY SPEEDWAY page – are run on our 92m track. It is the perfect entry level for riders who are learning to slide a bike and a great ‘experience day’ for fans who are just looking for a one-off day to see how it is to ride a speedway bike. It is also a great place for the slightly more experienced riders to really get used to turning a bike although the track isn’t really suitable for 500cc bikes. The club have a range of 125cc and 150cc bikes that can be used, along with all the safety equipment (including steel shoes now) for £75. Wayne is a fantastic tutor and there are a long line of riders coming through the ranks who have started out being taught by Wayne. Any rider with their own bike can also ride for £30. To book a place please send Richard Hollingsworth a text on 07832-402167 or contact him via Facebook.

Wayne Carter Minitrack GROUP sessions – also see CORPORATE/GROUP BOOKINGS page – are run on our 92m track. The mini-track is increasingly being used for corporate hospitality.  Groups of up to 12 can be catered for and sessions are usually for four hours. The cost is £660 which presents a saving of up to £240 compared to individual bookings.  Bookings can be discussed by calling /texting Richard Hollingsworth on 07832-402167 or emailing scunthorperaceway@virginmedia.com

 

Wayne Carter Main Track Training Schools came about because so many of the people who had been taught by Wayne on the minitrack wanted further one-on-one tuition on the main track. However, the sessions are suitable for all abilities. If a rider just wants to practice then they can ensure plenty of track time because sessions are limited to just 16 riders. The format now sees sessions run from 11am to 4pm but if anyone wants some tuition on bike maintenance or bike set-up they can have an additional two hours from 9am to 10.45am for £20. The five hour on-track session costs just £50. It will have a break in the middle of the session with free drinks and snacks provided. There is also an opportunity for up to two riders to hire Wayne’s bikes for an additional £100 for the full day. Ideally Wayne likes to have seen those wanting to use his 500s on the minitrack to ensure they are safe enough. To book a place please send Richard Hollingsworth a text on 07832-402167 or contact him via Facebook. Simply adding your name as an attendee to the Facebook event is not enough.

AMSA Andy Meredith Speedway Academy regularly hire both tracks and bookings/more details are available by contacting Andy on 07816-874781, Heather on 07722-656105 or joining the AMSA group on Facebook. Whilst all session are suitable for ladies Andy does also run ‘ladies only’ days.

Amateur Meetings have been hugely successful and more and more classes are being added all the time. We have reached the stage where all rounds are split over two days. All meetings start at 11am (signing on 9.30-10.30am). There are six adult speedway classes (Open, Support and Novice Classes plus two Upright classes (Open and Support) for those with upright engines who don’t want to ride in the other adult classes and now there is a very popular and rapidly expanding 160cc class for all bikes under that engine capacity (125s, 140s etc.). Novice Class riders vary from those who aren’t sliding much at all to those who, given decent conditions, have a full slide on around the bends. Typically once a rider is winning races under 70 seconds they move up to the Support Class and then when a rider is confident enough or they are breaking something like 63 seconds they move up to the Open Class where there is a wide range of National League plus occasional Premier League standard riders mixing it with the best second halfers. To book a place please send Richard Hollingsworth a text on 07832-402167 or contact him via Facebook. Simply adding your name as an attendee to the Facebook event is not enough.


There are now four youth speedway classes (Youth 500, Youth 250 and two classes for Youth 125/150 (Open and Support) plus a quad speedway class.  The non-speedway classes that have a separate day during the summer (and have been with the youth classes during the winter) are Flat Track, Street Tracker, Inappropriate Road Bike, Adult Pit Bike (actually for all four-strokes up to 160cc irrespective of wheel size) plus two youth classes.  Junior One is for up to 50cc (2-stroke) or 110cc (4-stroke) whilst Junior Two is up to 85cc (2-stroke) or 160cc (4-stroke).


Costs are the same as a practice (£40, but just £30 if the rider is under 15 years old), we have Mandy and Gail selling food and drink from our own food van in the pits and there is always a paramedic in attendance. Trophies are always presented to the top three in each class and regulars can also compete for the Summer Championship and Winter Series titles (subject to riders completing more than half of the completed rounds).

 

WISS Skids Main Track Private Practices
Ivan Howarth runs private practices throughout the year. He has paramedic first aid cover and he can be contacted through Facebook or via 07534-540610.

 

Mini Track Open Practices
The minitrack is often available for riders with their own bikes and equipment when we run on the main track. However, it is sometimes booked out and sometimes the track team have to focus their efforts on getting the main track ready. With that in mind it is definitely always best to contact me to make sure the track is available for use. To organise please text Richard Hollingsworth on 07832-402167 or contact him via Facebook.

 

Track hire
Both tracks are available for hire at reasonable rates so please contact text Richard if you are interested (07832-402167). Whilst we do have 24/7 planning permission we do have to fit track hire around the the track team’s availability (they also work at Sheffield). The cost of hiring the main track starts at £400 (plus £100 deposit in case of air fence damage).
