Flat out! The Dirt Track Riders Association announce 2019 schedule

by adminDecember 17, 2018

Dirt Track Riders Association is excited to announce their new line up of events for the 2019 season. The club have been working hard over the last few months to develop an interesting set of events that will continue to help develop Flattrack racing in the UK and across mainland Europe. 2018 was by far the biggest season for the DTRA and they are planning to build on the success of the 2019 season and promote new ideas and experiences for 2019.

New for 2019 is the European Championship where riders from all over Europe will be able to score points at key events on the 2019 calendar in an effort to become a 2019 European Champion. The hope is the European Championship will help to grow Flattrack racing outside the USA. The aim is to offer an opportunity for riders from all over Europe to compete at well organised events against other like minded individuals in certain classes. The DTRA are working to develop this championship into something that will help UK riders to compete against the best in the world. With this in mind they have teamed up with Johnny Lewis at Motoanatomy to offer the 2019 Pro Class winner a supported scholarship ride at an event in the USA during 2019 (more details soon).
