For the 14th year in succession, the Millennium Stadium will come alive to the roar of motorbike engines as the FIM British Speedway GP races into the capital city.

The world's top riders will fight it out to be number one in this exciting, adrenaline fuelled event for the whole family.

For those that have never been to speedway the rules are simple. Four riders keep turning left over four laps of an oval track with each race lasting less than a minute.

Seems simple enough. Except that the riders race 500cc, single geared machines with no breaks!

Hold on tight

Millennium Magic

Cardiff's Millennium Stadium is set for a busy spring.  There's the annual spectacle of Wales Six Nations Rugby clashes, this year we play England (4 February) and Ireland (12 March).  We're also due to play England on 26 March, only this time the sport is Football.

But for many the highlight of the spring schedule will be the Millennium Magic weekend.  On 12 & 13 February, the first round of 2011's Rugby League Super League takes place under one roof (literally).  There'll be plenty of passion, atmosphere as well as pulsating games to keep the crowds occupied. 

The weekend's games feature a repeat of last season's Grand Final as Wigan Warriors, take on St Helens under the Millennium Stadium roof on the Saturday evening (7pm). Local rivalries will also come to the fore with Hull FC versus Hull Kingston Rovers, Castleford Tigers against Wakefield Trinity Wildcats and Leeds Rhinos locking horns against Bradford Bulls also forming part of a mouthwatering schedule of games.
