The Biarritz-based event is going from strength to strength, extending this year from four to five days.
The track is being built within a horsetrack in nearby San Sebastien, Spain. It is being constructed to the dimensions of the World Speedway host track of King's Lynn, UK and by the company that has been organising Red Bull X Fighters for several years. They are not messing around.
The race takes place on Wednesday 8 June.
The amount of entries is very limited, just 40 bikes. This is not a Dirt Quake style event, but there is an opportunity to race your street tracker (subject to approval)
Thunderbikes/Framers (singles and twins. DTRA rules)
Street Trackers/ Classic road bikes
Dirt track or road legal tyres only, no off-road knobblies.
No DTX bikes - sorry.
