• Innovative collaboration sees Infinite Reality and FIM Speedway GP pioneer the world’s first socially interactive and fully immersive speedway experience.
  • Available for free to download now on iOS devices, the FIM SGP-VERSE app offers an exciting experience across multiple touchpoints including customisable camera streams, an exclusive pit reporter feed and on-demand video content.
  • The FIM SGP-VERSE also gives fans the unique opportunity for an interactive meet and greet ahead of racing with FIM Speedway’s biggest international stars including Jack Holder, Tai Woffinden, Leon Madsen, and reigning four-time world champion Bartosz Zmarzlik.


Following an exclusive preview last season, Infinite Reality and the events division of Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) Sports Europe, the global promoter of the FIM Speedway GP (SGP) series, today unveiled this new, cutting-edge experience for fans. The FIM SGP-VERSE app is now available to download for free in the Apple store, to coincide with one of the biggest SGP events on the calendar, the Orlen FIM Speedway GP of Poland – Warsaw, taking place at the famous PGE Narodowy stadium on 11 May.

Through the unique virtual realm of the FIM SGP-VERSE app, fans from all around the world will have the opportunity to meet and interact with the biggest speedway stars throughout the season including 2023 Australian Championship winner and current FIM Speedway GP World Championship leader Jack Holder, who is set to meet the speedway community on the FIM SGP-VERSE app on Saturday, 11 May at 4.30 PM CET. 

Holder shared his excitement about the opportunity to be the first rider to meet the Speedway GP fans in this new digital environment. He said: “I can’t wait. While we have over 50,000 spectators in attendance at the event, this is a great chance for fans from all over the world – including from Australia of course – to catch up with us online and get closer to the action. Bring on Warsaw and hopefully this year I can go one better and top the podium.”

As the FIM Speedway GP season progresses, fans will regularly have the chance to meet some of the sport’s legends, including Poland’s four-time and reigning world champion, Bartosz Zmarzlik; Britain’s most decorated speedway rider with three world titles, Tai Woffinden; and Denmark’s World Championship silver medallist and two-time European Champion, Leon Madsen. Details on how and when to connect with speedway’s biggest international stars will be communicated through the championship’s official social media platforms (@SpeedwayGP).



As part of FIM Speedway GP’s mission to accelerate fan engagement opportunities and support the continued growth of the sport, innovative new experiences contained within a purpose-built FIM SGP-VERSE experience include:

Customisable camera streams: Fans can be their own TV director, going trackside and behind-the-scenes with several camera feeds available to select during race evenings, including an exclusive pit reporter feed, placing them at the heart of the action with exclusive rider interviews and expert insights. 

On demand video-content: Race highlights and exclusive content including Monster Energy’s Twist the Throttle – a series taking fans behind-the-scenes of a dramatic 2023 season and featuring interviews with some of the sport’s biggest stars.

An exclusive Speedway GP Museum: Fans can navigate through over 100 years of speedway history including a virtual Hall of Champions and Hall of Bikes, honouring the legends of the sport and displaying priceless memories that celebrate more than a century of racing.

These latest additions join the suite of immersive opportunities first previewed during speedway’s centennial season last year which enable seamless navigation through the experience including:

  • Avatar Overhead Video and Audio Chat to provide a deeper social experience between users.
  • Dynamic Camera Selection allowing users to switch between first or third-person view.
  • Customisable Video Stream Feed Selection, including a trackside view, enabling users to become the directors of their own experience.
