The Isle of Wight Wightlink Warriors (formerly Islanders) are a British speedway team. They last competed in the 2019 National Development League and ride their home meetings at the Smallbrook Stadium.[2]


Isle of Wight speedway began at the Smallbrook Stadium in the 1996 Speedway Conference League. The team known as the Ryde Wight Wizards finished 4th in the table.[3] The following season they entered two teams for the league seasons; the Isle of Wight Warriors competed in the Premier League (division 2) and the Wizards became the junior team competing in the Conference League.[4]

The Islanders continued to participate in the Premier League until 2009. They won the Premier League Pairs Championship in 2007 when Chris Holder and Jason Bunyan beat Glasgow in the final. They also won the Premier League Four-Team Championship at Peterborough in 2007 with a team of Chris Holder, Jason Bunyan, Krzysztof Stojanowski, Glen Phillips and Cory Gathercole defeating King's Lynn, Somerset and Rye House in the final.

In 2010, they joined the third division and after a break of two years (2014 and 2015), the club reformed in 2016 under the promotion of Barry Bishop and Martin Widman and ran until the cancelled 2020 season. In 2021, the club announced they would not be competing during the year.[5]
