In the Village Bred which is almost merged with the neighbour village Vissenbjerg in the rolling hills of West Funen.
A motor club named Vissenbjerg – Bred Motor Klub (VBMK) saw daylight with the sidecar rider Aksel Svaneholm, who former rode for the Sports Motorclub “Odin” in Odense, as chairman.
The club got permission to build a moped speedway track on a hilltop west of the village. The 209 m. long track opened in 1975, and has ever since framed the club’s activities which now are 80 cc. and micro speedway.
Through the years, the plant has become modernized with semi-roofed pits. The small referee’s box is replaced by a two-storey brick building, in the ground floor containing an emergency room, and in the top floor a vast referee’s box equipped electronic time measuring and PC based results calculation as well as Internet connection. Furthermore the club lodge got expanded and modernized with dressing room, bath room and new toilets.
The track is not allowed for 500 cc racing. Nevertheless the club has produced a number of well known riders in that class. Best known is former Team World Champion and GP rider Hans Andersen.
In 2009 the European Motorcycle Union (UEM) selected the track for the Europen 80 cc Championship. It was a 2-days meeting, with the semi finals on Saturday and the Grand Finalenon Sunday. Riders from 9 nations participated.

Because the track is located on top of a high hill, mostly consisting of gravel, its ability to dry out in the early spring is very good. Therefore every year it is visted by VBMK’s Swedish frienship clubs for an early practice session.
