Originating in the 1900's the sport of board track racing was very popular in the United States. Mile long raceways were constructed out of wood. Long straights and banked turns allowed riders to reach awesome speeds, fighting and risking everything for the win.
After too many fatalities, the sport was banned. But the racers needed a new challenge, by eliminating the straights and making the wooden track 90 degrees perpendicular to the ground they started to entertain the public and a new attraction was born, ' The Wall of Death'.
Constructed in 1927 in the USA and shipped over to the UK not long after by Pat Collins Funfairs. His son in law, Elias Harris then took it on. Elias built a car, powered by an Indian four engine, which had a special platform for his Lioness "Rita". The wall of death was sold to Roy Cripsey where it was thought to be the first wall to have a go-kart ridden around it. It was erected at Skegness and was kept there till the early 80's.
When Alan Ford bought the wall of death he re-branded it the "Motordrome co." Alan travelled the wall until 2000. Where it was stored on a back of a lorry in Kent and left to rot. In 2003 we bought it and began a three-year restoration project. Not only has the wall been given a well needed make over, we have given it a new sense of direction, bringing the act into the twenty-first century, which comes with the new brand name,
