4 years on and Dirt Quake is continuing to get bigger and better. Organised by Sideburn Magazine the event is not only a fun spectators sport as road bikes and choppers are ridden round the track. It also works as a fantastic way to introduce people to the world of flat track racing without having to invest in a race bike. Additions to the usual madness (See my reports from 2014, 2013 & 2012) were Ken Foxes Wall of Death, Flat Track Limbo and Davros entertained on the Saturday evening!
As well as the main Dirt Quake event the DTRA ran Round 4 of their ever growing race series which is getting not only bigger but more competitive. I urge people to try and watch at least one round of this fantastic sport at a racetrack near or far from you!!
Enough chat I will let the sketches and photos do the talking....
