Summerlee Museum

24 June – 31 October 2021

Discover the thrills and spills of speedway at Summerlee over the summer. The exhibition features an array of memorabilia relating to this much loved motor sport, from bikes, equipment and badges to programmes, photos and magazines. You can also see items on display from legends, Bert Hawkins and Brian Collins.

The exhibition is organised by the museum’s Learning Officer and the Speedway Memories Reminiscence group who have loaned their treasured possessions for the displays. The group meet at the museum on a monthly basis to talk all things speedway or watch films of past races.
