SPEEDWAY ACROSS THE BORDER

21/12/2021

A new collaboration between Vojens Speedway Center and the German Motorsport Federation's youth organization DMSJ, will strengthen the talent development for young speedway drivers in Denmark and Germany. In March 2022, Vojens Speedway Center will host a training camp under the name Speed1future.

A weekend of training at the national Danish speedway arena, garnished with sports psychology, dietary guidance and e.g. technical inputs from experienced profiles in the hectic motorsport, are some of the content offered to young speedway drivers at the end of March.

- We focus on the youth in 85cc, 250cc and 500cc (U21), and it is the plan that we have 16 participants in each class. 8 from Denmark and 8 from Germany. It thus culminates with a race in each class on Sunday, says director Jacob Olsen from Vojens Speedway Center

- We have for a long time been in dialogue with DMSJ in Germany about the idea, and it is the plan that the cross-border cooperation will be repeated in Germany in 2023.

- In the three classes, we primarily invite drivers from Vojens Speedway Klub, but we are happy to provide space for drivers from other Danish clubs, if possible, says Jacob Olsen.

South of the border, the DMSJ invites German participants.

The international motor union FIM is enthusiastic about the new initiative, and would like Speed1future to have more countries involved in the future.
