See six speedway bikes on display alongside speedway equipment, programmes, badges and magazines from the era when speedway was a popular night out in Motherwell and Coatbridge.
The Cinder Kings exhibition is organised by Learning & Access Officer, David McDonald, alongside a group of local speedway enthusiasts. The group run a monthly Speedway Memories Reminiscence Meeting where local speedway fans can get together and talk speedway or watch films of past races. The group is inspired by the successful Football Memories project at the Scottish Football Museum. Members of the group are lending their own memorabilia for the exhibition, as well as receiving contributions from speedway riders who rode in Coatbridge, including Bert Harkins and Brian Collins.
Remember to book your free entry to Summerlee Museum in advance.
