The SIM (Speedway In Miniature) 50 was built in Bradfield St George, near Bury St Edmunds by local engineering company Woodhouse and Cornish. Launched in 1974, the first model used surplus Anker Laura engines from BSA's Ariel Three project. Ipswich Witches speedway rider, John Louis, was featured in the publicity for the SIM. When the supply of ex-BSA engines was exhausted, Sachs motors were used instead. The SIM50 in the museum is a later, Sachs-powered model and is one of a small batch supplied to Mannings Amusements in Felixstowe.
