Charlie’s Speedway Success

Charlie's hobby is Speedway racing and he only started racing last year. Charlie has started the season well, winning the Winter Series held at Scunthorpe and raced at the weekend in the Summer Series. He won all his races but came second in the Final on Sunday.

Charlie will also be racing at British Youth Level and is hoping for some silverware. His first race is at the National Stadium in Belle Vue, Manchester on Friday 12th May. He is then off to Glasgow to race in the 2nd round on Sunday 14th. There are 5 other rounds across the country all through the summer. He races on 150cc bikes with no brakes, that's right, no brakes, around an oval track. Each race lasts just over 1 minute to complete 4 laps.

Charlie designed his own race suit and bike covers.


Well done Charlie, you should be very proud of your achievements so far and we are all routing for you!
