DirtQuake: 5 reasons to go

Fun on the flat track

Mad, muddy and marvellous, DirtQuake 2017 is coming up fast. The 8 and 9 July will see an array of different motorcycles sliding around on a flat track at the Arian Flux Arena in Norfolk. Here’s five reasons to get your hands on a ticket.

1. It’ll shock you

Ever seen a Vespa tackle a flat-track race? How about a chopper? DirtQuake has seen both. The now infamous ‘inappropriate road bike’ category has seen riders turn up on anything and everything, so who knows what this year will bring.

2. It’s still off the radar

Forget the huge fanfare of Silverstone or swarms of crowds at the TT, DirtQuake, although growing, still has that back-yard-festival feel. Rock up, ride, chill out, go home. No fuss, no problem.

3. Anyone can do it

Not a professional racer? So what. If you’ve got a bike with an MOT, you’re good to go. No pressure, few rules and a friendly atmosphere make DirtQuake the best place to have a go at flat track racing.

4. It’s mad

Want to ride dressed as a Simpsons character? Go for it. Want to create a bike that looks like a big meat pie and ride it around the track? Not only is that also OK, it’s encouraged.

5. Cool custom bikes

Although stock machines will be kicking about, DirtQuake sees some of the best custom machines – many built specifically for the event – with Carl Fogarty rocking up on a special Triumph Scrambler and Guy Martin lapping it up on a custom chopper built by Krazy Horse.
