If you have never been to a speedway meeting, then you should really give this a try. TV coverage, although very good, can never quite capture the thrill of being up close and personal.
Although Ashfield is an old fashioned stadium, it offers unrivaled viewing of this wonderful motorcycle sport. You can sit in the stand or position yourself right by the starting gate. Stand on the back straight, at the entrance to the first bend or the exit to the fourth bend. There are so many viewing positions that you are truly spoiled for choice and because you can stand so close to the action (if you choose), you get a real feeling for the speeds that these guys get up to and the extraordinary skill and bravery which is on show.
Once inside the stadium, you are able to move around freely and there is no extra charge if you wish to sit in the stand. There is fast food available and a nice new bar block which was put in pace at the start of 2013. Bar prices are very reasonable and you can take your drink outside in plastic glasses if you wish. The toilet facilities within the new bar are excellent.
Don't be fooled into thinking that speedway is just for bikers. It is absolutely not. There is a huge mix of folk attend. Old, young, friends and families. And you won't find a more welcoming and friendly bunch anywhere.
I've been to the track on several occasions this season and can recommend the experience.
