What is Dirt Quake?

‘Dirt Quake is Sideburn magazine's Day at the Races,' says Dan Walsh, Their ‘Go Fast, Turn Left' celebration of the can be arsed. Their ‘It aint what you ride, it's the way you ride it' manifesto featuring three democratic, open to all comers classes for street trackers, inappropriate road bikes and, hell yeah, choppers.'

Dirt Quake mixes the top and bottom dirt track racing, peculiarly British cabaret, bike culture and music in a way that has never been seen in Europe.

How to race?

There are three race classes: Inappropriate road bike; Street tracker; Chopper. Entry fees are £25. Everyone without an MCF race licence will need a day licence (costing £10). The classes are the same as last year.

INAPPROPRIATE ROAD BIKE (IRB)

Bike must be road legal, with lights (taped up) and registration plate. No enduro bikes, no supermotos, single cylinder trailies aren’t inappropriate. Big, 750cc-plus adventure bikes are, though. Any doubts email us.

Bike

STREET TRACKER

Road-legal street tracker or street scrambler (subject to approval by us). Registration plate and working tail light. Any tyres. This is not a class for race bikes. They can enter the DTRA’s novice class, running on the same day, if they comply to the tech rules.

Bike

CHOPPER

It’s got to be a chopper, bobber or custom, baby. Doesn’t have to be road legal, but must look like a chopper. Hardtails and softtails accepted. Stock looking factory customs should be in Inappropriate Road Bike class.

Pre-Party Poster

FRIDAY NIGHT PRE-PARTY

The good people at Old Empire Motorcycles have organised a pre-party a few minutes drive from the track on the Friday night.

The idea is to make more of a weekend for those travelling a long distance. We'll have a DJ, a barbecue, there's a bar as well. This is a proper campsite and there will be other campers there, so it's not a lairy night.

The camping is being taken care of by the owners of the site, so to book your pitch, call 01945 430167 and quote 'Dirt Quake'.

If you don't want to camp, you're still welcome.

This is Dirt Quake!
