Speedway

Technology / Motorcycle / Speedway: Motorcycle speedway is a specialized sport run on oval, dirt tracks with usually four and sometimes up to six riders from two teams in each race competing over four laps. Speedway motorcycles have no brakes so competitors powerslide (or broadside) their machines sideways into the turns as a way to reduce speed in the corners. A variant of Track racing, Speedway is administered internationally by the FIM.
