The all Action 4TT commences at 10:30am (Practice) with tapes up at 11:00 on Sunday March 18th Iwade speedway stadium, near Sittingbourne.

The 4Team Tournament (4TT) is a brand new Pitbike speedway event pitching 4 (7man) matched teams against each other.

Each sizzling hot race will run with 8 riders. 2 from each team and split between the front and back starting rows. All heats are over 4 laps and the teams must ride all out to score personal and team points. Keeping an eye on your team mate is a must and the odd shoulder barge / dive bomb won’t be uncommon.

Points are awarded 5,4,3,2,1,0,0,0 in each race. The top scoring team will be seeded directly to the 4 vs 4 grand final and teams in positions 2&3 after the heats are completed will battle it out 4 vs 4 for the other grand final position. All finals are held over 6 laps and the combined scores from each team determines the victors.
