Welcome to the home of Mike Patrick, Speedway Photography.
I retired from speedway photography at the end of 2010, but the photos captured during my forty years form part of speedway's history. Therefore, it's my intention to keep this website operational so they can be enjoyed for years to come. My entire library now belongs to John Somerville, who has collected together the work of many speedway photographers. Thankfully, John has no problem with me supplying copies of any of the images that appear on this website. Thanks John.
I'm aware that by today's standards, this site is quite archaic. It contains many thousands of photographs, so the system used is probably the best around to store that amount at an economic level.
The good news is that once again, you will soon be able to purchase archived photos of your favourite riders. No hard copies of the photographs were ever kept, so every photo ordered will be custom printed especially for you. Any further information can be requested by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enter the Gallery area to the right to access the following albums: HOTPIX 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 & 2010. These albums contain many images from meetings that I've covered during those years, plus all the final pictures of my career from Bydgoszcz.
RIDER PIX gives access to archive albums of many individual riders up to and including 2004, whilst TEAM PIX contains various teams and groups of riders, British Leagues and Internationals from days gone by. If you wish to find images of your favourite riders or teams from 2005 to date, please use the search facility by entering the surname or team name. This will then show upto 150 images of your chosen search.
MILLENNIUM MEN contains many pictures of some of the 20th century Superstars, whilst MIKE'S FAVE HOT SHOTS has a selection of MY favourite pictures taken throughout the years. I will try to update this soon.
SALE ITEMS include books and photographs at reduced prices. Keep checking back as this will be updated regularly.

Please note that PayPal is now an established and secure method of making payments on the web but please be aware that Paypal will never send you an email or phone you for your personal details. As always, beware of fraudsters.
You can still view images from meetings covered from 2000 to 2004 inclusive by clicking on the ARCHIVE button above. However, it will only be possible to purchase these photos by using the downloadable order form - please click on the FOR SALE tab above.
Please ENJOY the pictures and happy browsing. Mike Patrick.
