2016 DTRA Dates - UPDATE

The dates for the 2016 season have been released. There is one new round. Leicester has been dropped, replaced by the Greenfield TT. Short Track UK - the organisation that established dirt track in the UK before the DTRA took over, used to regularly run TT style races (dirt track with rights and lefts and a jump), but this is a first for the DTRA. The track is being built by one of the racers, George Pickering, on his family's farm. TTs are a part of the GNC, with the famous Peoria TT, of course.
It means the British series has short track, half-mile and now TT again.

2016 DATES
Round 1... 10 April...  Rye House, EN11 0EH
Round 2... 14-15 May... MCN Festival, Peterborough, PE2 6XE
Round 3... 11 June... Greenfield TT, Lincolnshire, LN13 0EB
Round 4... To Be Confirmed... King's Lynn (the night before Dirt Quake V), PE34 3AG

Round 6... 14 August... Amman Valley half-mile, SA18 1UT
Round 7... 10 September... Rye House, EN11 0EH

Talking to the DTRA's head, Anthony Brown, it sounds like the series continues to grow with more racers signing up every year. The club are always looking for volunteers who would like to be a part of the organisational side of the racing. Get in touch through the new DTRA website, where there is information on bike technical specs, galleries, links to the free online magazine....
