Speedway is a dangerous sport but it is one that is enjoyed by many both as participant or spectator. As you can imagine there are a lot of car collisions in speedway simply due to the speed at which all the cars are going.
Speedway can relate to one of two sports but for the purpose of this article it is the motorsport where the track is an oval shape.
What types of accidents exist within speedway?
In order to win speedway you not only have to be fast but you also have to be a risk taker. You need to take the tightest driving line you can to overtake others and beat them without having a car accident. However, car collisions do still occur for a variety of reasons including clipping a car whilst overtaking causing them to spin out and cause them a car accident and sometimes taking a turn too tightly so that the car snakes and gets out of control in which case a car crash is very likely unless you can get it back in control quickly.
What other types of accidents occur in Speedway?
It isn’t just the drivers that are at risk of a car accident. The spectators are sometimes at risk too if the car veers off course of spins in the air and lands in the crowd. This can cause severe and multiple casualties so it’s not just the car collisions that cause injuries.
Whether you like it or hate it, Speedway is a popular sport and will continue to be no matter how risky it is and how likely you are to have a car collision, which is very likely.
