A father and his son have been involved in a fatal crash at Oreti Park Speedway in Invercargill.

They say a 59-year-old man was killed when a speedway racing bike crashed at about 2pm on Saturday.

A spokesperson at the speedway says the man was in the side car of a bike which was being raced by his son.

The park had been holding what it describes as a "have a go" race.
