One of the many things that makes Poland truly a wonderful country, aside from the pierogi and women, is its national fascination with Speedway. Racing motorcycles on dirt ovals enjoys the kind of popularity and attention there that meaningless ball sports enjoy here. These photos show Jarek Hampel riding around Leszno and below there’s a video of one of his most recent races. Check out the slick graphics and exciting action that puts even our MotoGP coverage to shame.
