With a short break in the individual World championship, Ice Speedway turns its attention to the team event at the Mega-Lada Stadium in Togliatti, one of the World’s best purpose-built track racing venues.
It is forty years since the FIM Team Ice Speedway Championship started and this year for the first time the competition has been relaunched as the FIM Ice Speedway of Nations, a concept known to Motocross and Trial disciplines and successfully introduced to track racing in 2018. The new race formula will see seven teams, each with two riders plus one reserve, riding in pairs over forty-two heats and will end with a ‘winner takes all’ final where the top two teams race for the gold medal and championship title.
