Perfect Weather, Perfect Bikes
1. If you buy Dirt Quake tickets in advance you get entered into the draw to win the full set of Sideburn 1-13. Tickets are £10 plus a booking fee of £1.
2. Old Empire have organised a Pre-Quake party at a local campsite on Friday night. Food, beer, music, good times. Pay for your camping, the party is free. Camping at the track on Saturday night is rough, but free.
3. Bring sun cream.

Not so crucial as in last year's quagmire, but it's a good idea to have something a little bit knobbly on the front - it doesn't matter if the back end is fishtailing, but you want your nose well planted. This is what I fitted last year (shown below).And this Cheng Shin is what I've splashed out on for this year. Clicking on the tyres keyword shows you other options (some only suitable for race bikes with widely spaced front forks). BP
