Discover the thrills and spills of Scottish speedway with an array of memorabilia relating to this much loved motor sport.

The exhibition features everything 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.
