That's Grass Track hobot, very popular in a couple of different forms in UK and Europe. The tracks are, generally about 1/4 mile, or 1 mile. The longer track, known startlingly as "Long Track", uses a circuit about 1 mile long, is very popular in Europe, I saw one of the first "long track" meetings in the UK (at Blackmore Vale??) in the late 60s. Very spectacular, especially the long track. The track is essentially a fallow paddock/field, which is more or less flat, and preferably grassy. The bikes used to be similar to speedway bikes, but not the same, they had rear suspension for instance.
VERY hard men ride Grass Track.

Terrific episode from a great BBC TV series called Racing Legends featuring John Surtees. Apologies if this has already been posted.

Ugh Bernhard those helmet hits hurt to watch as much as being funny but its what I have wanted to do being cut off or almost run into on hwy and THE Gravel, which they watch me save a collision ending up in ditches or fences but they keep going away... I wish they had gladiator roller rink type grass/dirt racing where its allowed-expected for racers to grab others brake levers, snatch hand off throttle, kick bars and rider trying to get ahead.

Cycles equal blood sport for way too many which makes risking life to learn that loading level mastery is ambiliant for me as desiring to try it before forced into it by something. I treat a lot of people with original injury being something with a saddle horses to cycles that finally break down from the long distorted posture degenerations , The stunt I wnat to perfect is a 360 barrel roll like air craft do. Safe journeys.

luck out save by last instant STRAIGHT STEERING one cycle I know does on purpose for sharper turns with less leaning but staying in saddle, sheeze.
