Paypal payment (must be Friends and Family) to email@example.com, a cheque made payable to Scunthorpe Raceway Ltd and sent to 2, Newland Drive, Scunthorpe, DN15 7HP are the preferred options although Bank Transfer is also an option (text Richard on 07832-402167the above number for details).
Just wanted to say we had a great day! Brett really enjoyed it. You were all very friendly & we thought it was so well organised. We’ll definitely be recommending it to our friends. Think he might be a bit sore in the morning though. Thanks again for an excellent day.
Sally Gallagher (Birmingham)
I thought I’d write a quick email to say that Dino had his track day on Sunday and he had an amazing day! He said that while he hoped that he looked like Kelvin Tatum going round the track, (shows his age 😄) with a huge rooster tail plume of dirt behind him, in reality it was probably more like ‘a sack of spuds on a moped trying to get a box of eggs home intact in an icy Asda car park’ but he was thrilled with the whole day. Thank you to the team for a great experience day and for making his birthday a memorable one. Kay Burbidge (Cornwall)
I’d just like to say thanks for the great day yesterday on the speedway try out day. I’m not sure I’m destined to be world champion – but apparently I looked to be getting the hang of it!. Hopefully I’ll be back for another go at some point – and won’t keep looking for the brake lever all day!! David Broughton (Grimsby)
We all had a fantastic day today, perfect weather etc. Please pass on our thanks to Wayne and the guys for looking after us. Would highly recommend to anyone, thanks again. Mark Lockwood (Bradford)
Thanks for arranging such a memorable experience, everyone attending commented how much they had enjoyed the event. The guys running the day were very helpful and accommodating, thanks to all for a great day. Anthony Kaye (Novartis, Grimsby)
Just an email to say me, wife and daughter had a fab time this Sunday trying to become speedway stars with Wayne! Please pass on our thanks …. I have already mentioned it to friends and they may be on the way! Ian Datlen (Letchworth Garden City, Hertfordshire)
Just to let you know that both lads had a cracking time on the Minitrack on Saturday, thoroughly enjoyed it. Please pass on our thanks to Wayne and the team, much appreciated. Richard Spencer (Derby)
Just a quick message to thank you and Wayne for an amazing day on the mini track on the 14th of September
myself, Cheryl visiting for the second time and Kath on her first visit had the best day imaginable and all 3 of us are itching to come back again. Wayne was extremely helpful in helping all 3 of us throughout the day. Can’t wait for our next visit. Thanks again.Dave Pearson (Southampton)

Just a quick email to say thank you for the training on Saturday. Kyle really enjoyed it and learnt so much. Will definitely be booking another session for him. Katie Thompson (North Lincolnshire)
Thanks again for your good instructions and the great day which we spent on your track! Oliver Pietig (Munster, Germany)
I had never been on any type of motorbike before the day and I was the only one who had not been on some sort of motorbike before, but I was straight on a bike and thanks to Wayne my nerves was gone after my first couple of laps and my confidence grew as the day went on. Wayne was a great teacher, he was patient, so helpful and an all round nice man. I can’t wait to come again as it really is worth every single penny and I would full recommend it to anyone no matter what age or ability! Thanks again Wayne and everyone who helped make my day a great one! Will Thorpe (Sleaford, Lincolnshire)
Just dropping you a line to say what an awesome day we had last Sunday. Please pass on our many thanks to Wayne, his dad, the old track fella and helpers for their open, friendly and informative contribution throughout the day which made a great day even more enjoyable. We will definitely be back again next year once we all stop walking like John Wayne! – Scott Geary, Craig Moore and Paul Sheppard (Loughborough)
Sorry we had to nip off on Saturday before you had finished. Just to say thank you – Barry had a great day and realised a lifetime ambition! No doubt we will be back at sometime in the future. Once again, many thanks. Kind regards Glennys Potter (Market Harborough)
Just wanted to say my partner had a great time at the speedway last weekend and we would like to thank Wayne for his help and guidance on the day. We will definitely be back next year and I will be even be having a go !!. Joanne Farrelly (Coventry)
Just a quick note regarding the track day my boys went on. Just to let you know they both had a brilliant time. Wayne was fantastic with them. Please pass on my thanks to all concerned. Nigel Tullett (East Yorkshire)
Having recently attended a training session on Sunday 25th March 2012 I would like to thank yourself and Wayne Carter for making this experience one which I will remember for a very long time. I do hope that I will be in a position to do it all again in the near future. Having never ridden a motorbike yet alone a speedway bike before I am grateful for the way in which Wayne supported me and built my confidence up along with the other two people who was at this training session throughout the afternoon. He was absolutely brilliant and I can’t thank him enough for all his time and what he did for me and would certainly recommend your training sessions to friends and family if they wish to take up speedway lessons. Hope to see you again later on in the year. Victoria Smith (Leicestershire)
After our, last visit to Scunthorpe, (our 4th so far), we both feel it is the least we can do, to commend you, instructor Wayne Carter and the staff at Scunthorpe, for making our training day another most memorable, enjoyable and instructive occasion. The overnight accommodation you recommended was just one mile from the track. Rooms were clean, we were warmly welcomed and after a good breakfast, were ready for the day. The classroom instruction was invaluable and thorough, leaving plenty of time for the track. Training was as always varied and accommodates the needs of riders of all levels. A sincere thank you from us both. Paul Ridgley (West Midlands)
I’d just like to express sincere thanks to Wayne, Geoff, Alan and everybody involved with the running of the mini-track, and for the club for letting us come and play in their back yard. We have booked several private sessions and intend to run them on a regular basis. We are so hooked that ‘The Lions Den Skidders have had race bibs made, and we have a team captain, Manager and Mascot. It has been described by us as the most fun you can have with your clothes on, and if one considers that for £99 you can have about a minute and a half driving a Lamborghini, or for £50 (NB. This is a group fee of £600 divided by 12, individual cost is £70) you can share 4 hours of thrills, a few spills and just a great day out with friends. The tuition is excellent, anyone that looks any good can be given more input, the plodders are still encouraged and advised, and the best thing is that anyone who has never ridden anything powered on 2 wheels is usually straight into it and end up hooked. The track’s a great size and shape and the bikes are just right for it. No messing about on the straights, it’s into the corners and try to get the back end moving. There’s no waiting about either. Once the session is underway, a bike becomes free, if you want it, jump on it! We wish Scunthorpe Speedway continued success with a fantastic operation and thanks for always being so welcoming! Mike Cowley (Leicester)
Just need to say a big thanks for Wayne’s training day. You know he really is good at teaching, and so much patience with everyone. I think your set up at Scunny is first class and I can’t thank you enough for letting us come along and join in, it’s like our second home now. I will hopefully be along to the next one on my own bike. Mick Keeling (Buxton)
I just want to thank you and your staff for making it a day none of us will forget.A big thanks must go to Wayne,who I think went above and beyond.All of us learned a lot from him,we will be back again,for another corporate day,I also keep telling anyone who will listen to me what a great experience it was.So once again thanks. Till the next time – Derek Chalmers (Edinburgh)
Just a quick note to thank the team for a great day yesterday Jack really enjoyed himself and very much appreciated all of the instruction and guidance that he was given. As he was promised he is aching all over today not bad for somebody who regulalry puts in 3hr sessions on his trials bike very different sports!! He is itching to come down again, I will check dates on website and book something with you in the near future – Dave Flynn (Co.Durham)
I just want to thank all at Scunthorpe Speedway for the magic day Aaron had on Sat. A huge thanks to Wayne Carter (especially) and the guys (including Wayne’s Dad !) for making Aarons day so enjoyable for him. He really did love it. I think we will be back ! Please do pass my thanks on to Wayne and everyone else there – Peter Thompson (Edinburgh)
I attended the training session on the 7th – such a brilliant day, thanks to Wayne and his team. I am now looking to book my next training day – Paul Hayward (North Yorkshire)

I would be grateful if you could pass on our thanks to everyone for a great Sunday, particularly Wayne, his dad and the chap who kept picking my son up off the floor.
