DTRA Round 2, Rye House

As part of Sideburn's on-going sponsorship of the 2013 Dirt Track Riders Association race series we commissioned the poster for round 2. This whacked-out image was created by Essy May. 
PLEASE share it on your blogs, facebook, other SocMed....

This Rye House race takes place during the day of Sunday 19 May, the same weekend as The Bike Shed Event  in London (that Sideburn is also involved in), and is only a short ride (on bike or train) from the East End, so make a weekend of it. Entry to this race is just £5 and the action is always extra wild at Rye House. 

The first race of the series happens THIS SUNDAY at the Norfolk Arena, King's Lynn. The DTRA are short of a couple of marshals if you want to get involved. You don't need experience. You'll be instructed on the day. Contact the super-friendly organisers directly through the DTRA website
Entry for spectators is £5, under-16s are free. 

Here's an interview with the artist, the inimitable, Essy May.

Where do you live? 
 Muswell Hill, North London

What bike do you own? 
There's a 70s Yamaha RS125 rusting in the alleyway that's partly mine.

What's your dream bike? 
One that can travel through time and ride the rings of Saturn.

Who is your favourite racer/motorcycle hero? 
Evel Knievel of course.

If you were going to start racing flat track, what bike would you choose? 
A gold-plated Bultaco Astro probably.

What was the inspiration for your DTRA poster? 
Science Fantasy has no limits.

Finish this sentence. A motorcycle is… 
A fun thing to draw.
