A Warm Welcome To WSRA

The World Speedway Riders' Association (Charity No. 1114501) is the oldest and most prestigious association for former riders, officials and speedway supporters.

Founded as the Veteran Speedway Riders' Association in 1957 by journalist and broadcaster Peter Arnold - who wanted to provide former riders with an easy way to keep in touch with their ex-teammates and peers.

In 2006 it became the World Speedway Riders' Association to update its image and to appeal to younger members.

Today it's a thriving organisation with more than 500 members and a busy social calendar - the pinnacle of which is the annual Awards Dinner.

The WSRA is built on respect for everyone involved in the sport and each individual World Champion is automatically enrolled as an honorary life member as soon as they clinch their first world title.

Artem Laguta, is the most recent world champion to be inducted after being named WSRA Rider of the Year in 2021.

The WSRA hosts the National Speedway Museum at Hertfordshire Zoo in Broxbourne which is the flagship of the charity - where visitors can delve into the history of the sport with the nostalgic exhibits either donated or loaned by the sport's biggest stars.
