ŻKS ROW Rybnik is a Polish motorcycle speedway team based in Rybnik which currently competes in First League (2nd division). ROW Rybnik is one of the oldest and most successful teams in Polish speedway. There is a historical link to the football team Energetyk ROW Rybnik, both using the name ROW, but otherwise the clubs are completely independent of each other.

History[edit]

Speedway in Rybnik has existed since 1930. In 1964 the multi-sports club ROW Rybnik was formed as a result of a merger between two local clubs RKS "Górnik" Rybnik and KS "Górnik" Chwałowice. Since then the club has undergone various changes, including Rybnicki Klub Motorowy (Rybnik's Motorcycle Club) in 1994, then reverted to its historical "ROW" prefix in 2009 as RKM ROW Rybnik, then changed the name to ROW Rybnik Sp. z.o.o. in 2012 and finally to ŻKS ROW Rybnik in 2013. The team is historically one of the best ever - they have been runners-up in the Polish Championship 8 times and won the title 12 times, but the last title was in 1972.

Stadium[edit]

The Rybnik Municipal Stadium is located on ulica Gliwicka. It contains 10,304 seats. The track is 357 metres long and has a granite surface. The track record was set by Ronnie Jamroży (62,79 sec on 13 April 2009).
