SPEEDWAY TRUCKER HAT
Motorcycle speedway, normally referred to as Speedway, is a motorcycle sport that involves between 4 and 6 riders competing over 4 laps. A variant of Track racing, Speedway is administered internationally by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM).*************Speedway racing takes place on a flat oval track usually consisting of dirt or loosely packed shale, the official definition being "a track with a top surface in granite, shale, brick granules or similar unbound material rolled in on the base ground". Competitors use this surface to slide their machines sideways (powersliding or broadsiding) into the bends using the rear wheel to scrub-off speed while still providing the drive to power the bike forward and around the bend. ******************************** Originating in New South Wales, Australia in the 1920s, there are now both domestic and international competitions in a number of countries including the Speedway World Cup whilst the highest overall scoring individual in the Speedway Grand Prix events is pronounced the Speedway world champion. FIM regulations state that the motorcycles used must have no brakes, run on methanol, use only one gear and weigh a minimum of 77 kg.Races consist of between 4 and 6 riders competing over 4 laps. ********************************* The use of methanol provides an increased compression ratio to the engine resulting in higher speeds (approx 80mph when cornering) although the skill of Speedway lies in the overall ability of the rider to control his motorcycle when cornering and thus avoid losing places through deceleration. ************************************** The only way to stop a speedway bike is to pull a cut-off switch which is tied around the riders' wrists so if they come off the bike the engine will deactivate. The high compression ratio of the speedway engine also can assist in slowing down a machine if the throttle is closed. *************************************8 There is a fence on the outside in case a rider falls off which prevent rider and bike from crashing into the fans. In the British and Polish elite leagues air-fences are mandatory and have saved lives and reduced injury significantly since their arrival. ************************************ Speedway is presently most popular in Central and Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, United Kingdom and to a lesser extent these days Australia and New Zealand ; there are also over a dozen tracks operating in the United States with sites in upstate New York, Indiana and California. There are also 3 tracks operating in Canada on a regular basis. Speedway is also raced on ice with specially adapted machines.******************The first Speedway meeting is said to have been held on 15 December 1923 at West Maitland, New South Wales, Australia, though there is now much evidence to suggest that there were earlier meetings both in the USA and Australia. The first meeting in the UK is generally acknowledged to have taken place at High Beech on 19 February 1928. There are, however, also claims to have held meetings in 1927 from Camberley in Surrey and Droylesden in Manchester. Despite being described as 'the first British Dirt Track meeting' at the time, the meeting at Camberley on 7 May 1927 differed in that the races were held in a clockwise direction. Races at Droylesden were held in an anti-clockwise direction and this meeting appears to have a strong claim to be the first Speedway meeting in the UK, but it is generally accepted that the sport properly arrived in the UK when Australians Billy Galloway and Keith McKay arrived with the intention of introducing Speedway to the Northern Hemisphere. Both featured in the 1928 High Beech meeting.
