Learn safe ways at speedway

Have your say

SPEEDWAY fans are learning how to avoid motorbike accidents.

South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership has teamed up with the Sheffield Tigers speedway team and Pirtek Racing, and started the safety drive with a visit to the Tigers’ fixture at Owlerton Stadium. Spectators tried out driving on motorcycle simulators, and met speedway team members.

Keith Watts of South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said: “Watching speedway races is exhilarating, but spectators should remember when they head home speed limits on roads are there for a reason.”
