Dirt Quake Poland?
Here's the thing. We want to encourage people to get out and race their bikes, but Dirt Quake is Sideburn's name. It is not a generic name. The generic name is flat track or dirt track.
When we organise a Dirt Quake, it's with a proper racing club, at a proper international race track (King's Lynn in the UK, Castle Rock in the USA), with a proper medical plan and ambulances on site and all the public liability insurance we need to be above board. Motorsport is potentially dangerous, we want to minimise the risks as much as we can, while still having fun. 100% of the feedback we get says we do that. The Dirt Quake name is a guarantee of quality, not a catch all for riding mopeds in a field.
Our events look like spur of the moment, seat of the pants fun, but there has been months of planning and expense.
We are happy to inspire people to organise their own races or events, big or small. That's perfect, we couldn't get something together in Poland even if we wanted to, but think up your own event name, please.
Thanks to Ross and the Bike Shed for the tip-off.
