   The results of Speedway Test Matches between South Africa and other nations, from the first international at Ellis Park, Johannesburg in 1930 against England, up to the Polish tour of the Republic in the '90s, are given below in appropriate groupings.
    For varying reasons many matches were staged without formal SCB or MSA Test status: those known to be so are marked 'Official'. International team Challenge match data is also included. Photographs of many of the team line-ups can be found on the appropriate Gallery page.

    A summary table of the total number of appearances and points scored, as compiled by respected SA motorsports journalist Ken MacLeod, is presented at the foot of the second page.
