GB Speedway Team on the road
GB Speedway Team has been on the road for the past two weekends promoting British Speedway and the National Team along with its Partners at two major motorsport events.
Two weeks ago the Great Britain Speedway Team lined up alongside numerous motorsport giants including the Williams F1 team in the pit garages at Silverstone Circuit for a promotional event at the World Rallycross SpeedMachine Festival.
GB Speedway Team recreated the full Speedway of Nations pit bay set up and had two brand new race spec bikes on display for visitors to climb aboard and test their gating reactions in a competition to win tickets for the British round of the Monster Energy FIM Speedway Grand Prix.
The festival was hugely popular and featured everything from significant music headliners, manufacturer passenger rides, supercars, e-gaming, street food, camping and of course the main event, the two day Dayinsure FIA World Rallycross of Great Britain.
While there was plenty of four wheel action on track to keep the 40,000 or so spectators entertained there was still plenty of time for them to take a look around the different stands and exhibits. Members of the Great Britain Team were on hand to engage with the constant stream of visitors to the stand, answering questions about Speedway and showing them around a Speedway bike, there were also plenty of giveaways in the shape of Power Maxed goody bags.
The promotions didn't stop there, a week later the GB Speedway Team were partnered alongside Power Maxed UK at Coventry's Motofest event for two days of non-stop cultural celebrations and motoring madness, it was a weekend of free family fun in the UK's Motor City.
Organisers at Power Maxed MotoFest Coventry were overjoyed after smashing all previous attendance records with 229,292 visitors recorded at this year’s festival putting it alongside Goodwood Festival of Speed, as the biggest attended motoring festival in the UK. Once again there was no shortage of interest in the Great Britain Speedway Team, from British Touring Car Championship legend, Jason Plato to young children wanting to emulate their heroes and a group of Portuguese engineering students who were fascinated by the race bikes.
Rob Painter, GB Speedway Team Managing Director commented, 'We are proud to have been in attendance at two hugely successful events and are looking forward to more promotional events throughout the year.'
