Hamster racing is a really cool sport where you put hamsters in balls or race cars. In hamster race cars, it looks like the wheels are touching ground, but actually the wheel that the hamster is in touches the ground and moves the race car. Hamster races are 9 meters or 30 feet courses that are mostly straight. People say the fastest hamster breed is the Roborovski dwarf hamsters.
Hamster racing is so big in England that they put it on live TV! In England the hamster tracks are 35 feet long! Hamsters will run between 4 and 8 miles in the wild.
