Ice Speedway Gladiators 2020

Post by Schwantz34 »

Hi all, not sure if anyone's interested in watching this but as per my thread in the wrong section late last year I've been to a few of the meetings in mainland Europe and really really enjoyed them. Watch out for Moto GP paddock exile Jasper Iwema who's improving year on year and features in a big high side during the closing credits.

Reminds me of the days when my Dad use to take me to speedway, though you can see the differences with these bikes
My signature isn't particularly interesting

Thanks for sharing, interesting to see how the riding styles and lines taken change as the track gets more rutted up from race to race. Good stuff

The outdoor natural ice tracks in Eastern Eurpoe are renowned for rutting up, when they get to the indoor tracks in Germany and Holland the ice generally holds together far better. Here's 'at weekends round in Togliatti, Russia
