Visit to Somerset Rebels Speedway

Meet 5:50pm at the arena on Wednesday 3rd June 2020

Somerset Speedway, Oak Tree Arena, Bristol Road, Nr Highbridge, Somerset TA9

We have arranged another visit to photograph this high-octane motorsport.

Our visit will commence with a pre-meeting tour of the pits and track and for those who have never been to speedway before explanations of this one of the most exciting motorsports in the world.

During the meeting we have a reserved table in the clubhouse for our exclusive use and access to the VIP guest area.  While our fee also includes food to be provided on the night – but not drinks.

We will be able to photograph from the VIP guest or public areas and the racing generally presents a fantastic spectacle to photograph.

Each race of four laps consists of four riders at the starting gates racing around an enclosed circuit made up of lose shale. Racers are often just inches apart at high speed careering around near the safety fence. The bikes themselves have no gears, no brakes and accelerate from 0 – 60 in about 3 seconds – faster than a formula one racing car. Colourful kevlars and helmet covers all add to the high-speed spectacle.

The cost of the evening including entry and provision of food is £18 booking in advance is essential and booking will close on the 25 May, ten days before the event.

If you need further information please contact the organiser.

The Oak Tree Arena is situated on the A38 just before Highbridge.

From NORTH or SOUTHBOUND leave the M5 Motorway at Junction 22 and then follow the signs for HIGHBRIDGE.

At the first roundabout take the first left (look out for the Somerset Speedway sign) and the Arena is situated less than 1/4 of a mile on your left-hand side.

If you overshoot there is a small roundabout just before a trading estate at which to turn around.
