Thrilling dirt track racing

Watch the DTRA cham­pi­onships and see BSB leg­end Chris Walker ride in mad­cap Hooli­gan races

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

A full day’s side­ways en­ter­tain­ment with the Dirt Track Rid­ers As­so­ci­a­tion, in­clud­ing the 750cc+ Hooli­gan race. Watch out for Chris Walker as he takes to the dirt track for the first time!

Dirt track racing is one of the fastest grow­ing and most ex­cit­ing race se­ries in the UK and the Ca­role Nash MCN Fes­ti­val of Mo­tor­cy­cling will once again be host­ing a full round of the cham­pi­onships. Held over both days, the racing spans all classes in­clud­ing youth, novice, pro, Thun­der­bike (600cc+), minibike and Vin­tage classes, plus the ex­cit­ing Hooli­gan races (see right).

Dirt track racing dif­fers from speed­way in that the bikes have a rear brake and gears. Rounds are con­tested by up to 12 ma­chines and the rid­ers come from a wide range of dis­ci­plines in­clud­ing road racing, speed­way and mo­tocross. The top UK rid­ers are good enough to com­pete world­wide so you can ex­pect some top-level racing.

Thee are two rules: go fast, turn left... Bal­anc­ing rear wheel slides with forward mo­men­tum is the real chal­lenge
