Dirt tracking in the UK

The third round of the Maxxis 2016 UK national flat track championship was held at Greenfield Farm near Alford in Lincolnshire on June 11/12.

Dirt tracking in the UK
Chris Scheltens’ purposeful-looking Triumph takes a breather.
With various classes, it was the vintage category which produced the most interesting machinery, with a Harley XR750 doing battle with a host of Triumphs, the majority of them Trackmaster-style twins, but among them a rigid framed TRW! Peter Jordan did well on his C15, while there was a host of fast Spanish two-strokes and a Morini V-twin.

Great fun.

Next round is at Norfolk Arena, as part of Dirt Quake V, on Friday, July 15 (from 6pm) and Saturday 16. More details from www.dirttrackriders.co.uk
