BACKGROUND

     This website presents the collation of news, results and photographs of Dirt Track Motorcycle Speedway in South Africa and Rhodesia since its introduction in 1927. It was originally set up for the Walkerville Speedway Riders Club, (WSRC), south of Johannesburg in 2012, but since that time speedway activity there has declined, first conceding track time to other forms of motorcycle racing, including Flat Track and Quad bikes, then to its termination at the end of the 2018 season when the club relinquished lease of the Showground track because of diminishing rider entrants in all classes.

     The website now serves the purpose of hosting the archive of speedway racing in Africa. It contains historical accounts plus complementary photographs and statistical data of speedway's early days in the Union, its heyday post-war when leagues, international Test Matches, MRCs and national and regional Championships proliferated, and, following the hiatus of the '60s, the return of Northern hemisphere riders, first to Rhodesia then to the Republic in the 1970s. An additional page has been added to cover speedway racing elsewhere on the continent.
