speedwayThe influence of Port Talbot is spreading across the UK!

So much so that the winners of our speedway competition live in places as far flung as Bedfordshire, Bristol, Monmouthshire and Buckinghamshire.

Other entries came from Magnet readers in areas such as Dorset, Manchester, Staffordshire and South Yorkshire.

Our five winners each scoop a pair of tickets to the 2013 British FIM Speedway Grand Prix at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium on Saturday June 1.


Fast and furious family fun, the event is right up there with the biggest dates on the British motorsport calendar.

The high-speed spectacular forms part of a hugely competitive FIM Speedway Grand Prix season.

British supporters have a new hero to worship in the form of Tai Woffinden who will be challenging for glory in front of the patriotic fans.

Tai will also be raising funds for Cancer Research UK in the run up to the British GP, by cycling 140 miles to Cardiff following his club race with Wolverhampton Wolves.


In an event which will be full of drama and thrills, the riders can reach speeds of up to 70mph, competing on 500cc bikes, with no brakes and acceleration that’s faster than an F1 car.

The June 1 fun begins during the day in a fanzone on Cardiff’s St Mary’s Street.

The British FIM Speedway Grand Prix will start with pre-event entertainment in the Millennium Stadium, followed by the Grand Prix itself (5pm start) and finishing with a firework display.
