Back to Greenfield! DTRA Nationals Round 6 & Hooligans Round 4 – Preview & Event info
It’s hard to believe that this year’s DTRA flat track racing season is almost over, but it’s time to get ready for our sixth and final round at Greenfield Dirt Track in Lincolnshire on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th September, presented in partnership with Indian Motorcycle.

This will be our second visit of the season to the UK’s only purpose-built dirt track facility, created by Hooligan rider and Indian Motorcycle team member George Pickering – this year we commissioned an awesome film all about George and his track, it’s called ‘Grounded’ and you can check it out here. Along with his family, George kindly hosts us for two rounds every season, and his team pulls out all the stops to ensure that the track is kept fully prepped and that we can all race safely. There’s nowhere like Greenfield and it’s only right that we finish the season there.
This race meeting will be open to spectators and it is free to attend. All attendees are requested to ‘Check In’ on the NHS COVID-19 app upon arrival.
Here’s everything you’ll need to know about getting ready for racing at Greenfield Dirt Track.
About the TT at Greenfield Dirt Track
The track at Greenfield Dirt Track consists of hard-packed, rich Lincolnshire clay, which when worked in the right way by the track team, attains a nice and wide ‘blue groove’ over the course of the day. The grippy, consistent groove makes for fast, close racing, and is why this track is so favoured by our riders. The TT jump is a mellow tabletop, which suits every type of rider from Rookies to Pros; it’s your call as to whether you hit it fast, or low and slow.
Running order and racing times
Here’s how the weekend of Round 6 looks so far.
SATURDAY – PRO, ADULT INTER, HOOLIGAN, ALL YOUTH CLASSES – 2 PM ONWARDS
SUNDAY – ROOKIE, MINI MOD, MINI STOCK, VINTAGE, THUNDERBIKES & TWINS – 10.30am ONWARDS
Track facilities for riders and spectators
As a grass-roots dirt track facility, Greenfield doesn’t have amenities such as a bar, cafe or showers, but it does have all of the essentials for some of the very best weekends in the DTRA calendar. Please note some facilities may be limited or unavailable due to COVID-19 safety restrictions so please arrive prepared.
Here’s what you’ll find at the track:
Well-maintained, separate male and female toilets
Running water (safe to drink, but not to everyone’s taste so bring bottled water if you’d prefer)
Loads of trackside space for parking and camping
Spectator platforms and elevated viewing areas
