DTRA 2015 - First practice

Although some riders have been practising on waterlogged tracks and driving to Spain for testing, last weekend the UK dirt track scene made its first proper pre-season DTRA test day at Eastbourne. Here's what series supremo, Anthony Brown (of Co-Built) says:

We had a massive attendance on what should have been a shitty raining Saturday, but wasn't. Loads of new riders and bikes and some of the regulars were really flying. 

Our next practice will be at Scunthope on Sunday 12th April. 10am till 3pm Anthony

George Greenfield. Won his class at Mablethorpe; has built his own flat track on a farm; should be very fast this year.
Novice James from Kingdom of Kicks on Sam Christmas's bike after his own Triumph was playing up.
BSB racer, Matt Layt (100) and Ollie Brindley (24)
The UK's quickest female racer, Leah Tokelove on her new KTM 350 (she raced a 250 against the 450s last year)
Milo on his Harley flathead. A new entry into the burgeoning vintage class, up from six entries to a threatened 20. The DTRA must have turned a blind eye to Milo's front brake, but they're banned from races. Just removing the lever will solve it, the hub can remain.
Nick Ashley has retired his Cheney Triumph for a Handshift Harley flathead, modified for the series.
Ollie Brindley scrubbing the front.
NOTE: The DTRA is still looking for helpers, either in key roles for the season or for individual rounds as marshals. Get in touch is you want to help: dirt @
