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 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 for four or five hours but if anyone wants some tuition on bike maintenance or bike set-up they can have an additional hour and three-quarters for £20. The on-track session costs just £45 (£50 if a five hours session). 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 Amateur Motorcycle Speedway Academy regularly hire both tracks and bookings/more details are available by contacting Heather on  07722-656105 or joining the AMSA group on Facebook.  

Amateur Meetings have been hugely successful and more and more classes are being added all the time. We have reached the stage where we have had to split the classes over two weekends. One weekend we run the speedway classes and on another we run the non-speedway classes.  All meetings start at 11am (signing on 9.30-10.30am) There are now ten speedway classes with six for adults (Open, Support and Novice Classes plus a two upright classes, open and support based on ability, for those with upright engines and a class for speedway and grasstrack bikes up to 160cc). 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 junior league racers. 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 with Youth 500, Youth 250 and two classes for Youth 125/150 riders. These are split on ability with the less confident riders in the Support Class but once heat winning times break 75 seconds then a rider must ride in the Open Class to give the others a chance of winning trophies.

The last year has seen an explosion of interest in the non-speedway classes following the highly successful Dirt Diggers festival. The classes are evolving almost every meeting but as of December 2018 there are classes for Flat Track (including super moto), MX/Dirt Bike (including enduro), Street Tracker (slightly modified road bikes), Inappropriates (bikes that really aren’t designed to be raced like mopeds, scooters, faired bikes, four cylinder bikes, factory customs and unmodified road bikes using road tyres), Pit Bikes (up to 160cc four-strokes with laydown engines and maximum 17″ front wheel and 14″ rear wheel) and Pit bike Evo (up to 160cc four-strokes but upright engines are allowed and there is no wheel size limits). During the summer there was demand for a Scooter class whilst we also ran a ladies class where there are no bike restrictions.

In addition we will run classes for quads, choppers/bobbers/lowriders, Harleys and cruisers and British bikes should there be demand.

Costs are the same as a practice (£40, but just £30 for the youth classes) and additional classes are just £10. We always have the Betty Boop diner in the pits selling hot food and drink whilst Barry Simpson usually has his spares van at all of the speedway meetings (Barry’s number is 07973-754518). 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, email scunthorperaceway@virginmedia.com 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.  The cost of hiring the main track starts at £400 (plus £100 deposit in case of air fence damage).
