>Getting Started ~ Grasstrack
This is a spectacular short but sweet speed event run on a grass oval. It is very similar to speedway, although the circuit is much longer and the speeds reached much higher. There are normally between 8 and 12 riders , in a race which lasts four laps. There are classes for schoolboys through to expert solos and even sidecars. The bikes are extremely specialised and only suitable for this type of event.
