Grasstrack Racing shares many similarities with Speedway with an oval track, four laps of pulsating racing and the advantage of being able to view the whole track from wherever you stand or sit.

And Grasstrack bikes have many different capacity engines, two strokes, four strokes, from 50cc right up to 1000cc whilst the age of the bikes ranges from 50-plus years, right up to modern day.

Grasstrack is an individual sport for both solo and sidecars, with riders both male and female competing on equal terms aged from six to 70-years-old.

The Midlands was previously a hotbed of Grasstrack and has seen a resurgence in recent times.
