KrowdRace Megapost

Krowdrace, the fledgling German dirt track race championship, was the one of the few series anywhere in the world to make anything like a season happen in 2020. They were rightly proud to announce that a total of 112 riders from 11 countries travelled up to 2000km (1300 miles) to the north of Germany to take part in their wholly amateur series. The organisers chose tracks in areas with low Corona numbers, the three being Wolfslake, Parchim and Nordhastedt, a mixture of speedway short tracks and a half-mile. The series went ahead with the sponsorship of Indian Motorcycles, a great supporter of pro and amateur flat track around the world.

All three Sunday races were preceded by full-day practice sessions, which offered the riders plenty of riding time and opportunities to tune up their machines and get their eyes in. There were also taster sessions for beginners trying their first laps on dirt ovals.

Racing at one of the Krowdraces was on my 2020 to do list, but trans-continental travel didn't seem the right thing for me to do at the time. Hopefully 2021 will pan out differently. I know some Brits who did attend and loved the events. Taking a look at these great photos confirms Krowdrace are very much on Sideburn's wavelength.
