52nd Great Season!

The Berwick Bandits proudly march into their 52nd Season of professional Speedway racing.

Scott Courtney moves into his second term with Berwick Speedway. After enjoying an innovative 2016 season as Team manager,  we now see Scott accept responsibilities as  co owner and co promoter alongside Jamie Courtney, and club icon Dennis McCleary.

Since retiring from professional  Speedway racing in 2011, Jamie Courtney has successfully created the Minibike Champs franchise. Jamie has been a pioneer in the sport of Minibike racing, creating a platform for youngsters and adults alike to competitively race motorbikes in a professional and fun environment.

Your new owners of Berwick Speedway are very experienced within the sport and they will be accompanied in the day to day running of the club by Dennis McCleary.

Dennis has been involved in the club since the very beginning. A firm disciplinarian, Dennis’s knowledge and experience is second to none within the club.
