Dirt Quake USA Schedule

We've finalised the schedule of events. Well, I say finalised, Thor has typed it out. It could change. It's Dirt Quake USA, it's a guideline. We reserve the right to change it. Go with the flow.

Friday racing: Each group equals 1 gate unless we have more than 14 racers. 1 practice per class, 1 heat per class, 1 main per class.

We have classes for every race bike from juniors on PW50s to Hooligans. Friday is for race bikes. Saturday is for Dirt Quake road bikes.
We're going to merge classes more than usual at US races, so we have good full grids and get lots of racing into a short time. We don't want three bikes in a race, we want a grid of 12!
