Zarnovica, the town of speedway, has reached an important diamond jubilee this year. Since 1953, when the first speedway race took place, there has already passed 60 years. During this period a small town on the river Hron had seen more than 200 races of various importance (World Championship, European Championship, etc.). Speedway Club Zarnovica, founded in 2011, is trying to continue in the spirit of this tradition. During last 2 seasons, we were able to organise 12 international races, including Individual European Championship qualification round. With the support of Town of Zarnovica, sponsors and supporters, we triggered once again a regular speedway life on the only speedway stadium in Slovakia.
The organization of speedway events, taking care of Slovak national team, raising young talents or organising promo events, it is only a part of the work of our ambitious club. The significance of 60-years jubilee we want to celebrate with the rich speedway season. Eight events, including one with world and one with European importance, are proof of that effort. Speedway Club Zarnovica believes speedway racing in Zarnovica in time of crisis can not only survive, but even move forward. We trust in further support of Town of Zarnovica, sponsors, medial partners and last but not least, our great fans and supporters.
