a well established product, Owzat Games have given it a fresh,
modern look. We'll go as far as to say that Speedway Scene is
the ideal way to while away a few hours over those soon to arrive
speedway-less Winter days and you can recreate just about any
meeting you chose (home or European) from the current season
or make up a few of your own. How about a league against your
evaluation, we found it highly addictive and a remarkably realistic
simulation as all the factors and variants (even chance!) of
a normal speedway meeting are catered for in the rules, which

nip out in to an early lead or will you have a bad one and have
ground to make up - the start procedure covers all this in detail.
Now the race begins and you have all the tactical choices and
options that would face a 'real' rider. Do you ride the line
and attempt to hold your lead or look round for your partner
and attempt to team ride. Or if you've missed the start a little
do you immediately move wide looking for the grip at the risk
of making a mistake and slipping further back. Speedway Scene
has it all - clipping the fence, changing 'lanes', injuries,
mistakes, sweeps round the boards, team riding, tactical substitutes
and just about anything else you can think of.

you'll be running meetings in no time and enjoying it to boot.
Attractively priced at well under £20, you can't go wrong in
our opinion. To find out more and buy your copy, visit Owzatgames
