Riders’ Association

PATRON LORD MONTAGU OF BEAULIEU

INTRODUCTION  
Welcome to the World Speedway Riders' Association.  

Our Association was formed back in 1957/58 by journalist, Peter Arnold, originally as “The Veteran DIRT TRACK Riders' Association”, we later became “The Veteran SPEEDWAY riders' Association”  then, in 2006, with the idea of encouraging 'younger' ex-riders to join, our members voted at the AGM that we become “The WORLD Speedway Riders' Association”.  

The members range from World Champions to Novice Riders, Track Staff and Officials, any Others who are proposed and seconded by existing members. everyone is welcome so, although we are the "WORLD" Speedway Riders' Association, you do not need to have ridden abroad or even at all to join us.

For further information or membership forms contact Secretary, Peter Sampson
