Former Speedway Schools - Learn to Slide
Speedway bikes, leathers, helmets, steel shoe, etc. are supplied by most schools. Just forget everything you have ever learned about riding motorcycles, and begin again!
- Turn the handlebars RIGHT to go LEFT! (remember, these bikes can't turn right!)
- NO BRAKES!
- The throttle still turns the same way, but you give it MORE to slow down and LESS to speed up!
When the bike weighs less than some riders and has 60 horsepower, body English is everything!

Jules Kart Raceway Wilmington, Illinois is also open for speedway practice every Sunday. Only a $20 fee (Note: track will be closed Sunday, April 22).
The July 16, 2000 session of the I Slide Speedway School at Jules Kart Raceway, Wilmington IL, was a great Sunday. We had a very diverse group that also turned out to be very talented. The weather was beautiful and the riders got a lot of track time. We rode from 11:00 am to 5:00 PM with a short lunch break.
All riders received a video of their rides (we try to tape every lap.) They also got a certificate of achievement and a certificate from Bell Helmets for a discount on a new helmet.
He keeps the classes small so everyone gets a lot of personal attention and feedback.
