Dirt Track to get cross this Saturday

If you’re a regular MX’er and you haven’t got a race this weekend and fancy doing something slightly different then you could do a lot worse than entering for the second round of the British Dirt Track Cross Championships! Taking place on Saturday 9th June at the Grass Circuit at Idover Lane, Dauntsey, Swindon, the scene for the awesome Dirt Track Oval round 2, these events will guarantee you have your bike sideways and on the gas!

This time it is the Dirt Track Cross second round so as well as taking in the Grass Oval the racers will be heading over the infield for right and left hand bends as well as small jumps and technical sections.

Dirt Track Cross has been said to be a cross between Speedway and Moto Cross and is perfect for riders of all abilities to take part in sprint races and fantastic for spectators.

The championships, includes QUADS, MOTO CROSS, MINI BIKES as well as support class for Dirt Track Solo.

Round one of the QUADZILLA QRA British Quad class which took place at Hayley Stadium, Newport, was won impressively by Welsh Teenager, and reigning champion Luke Cooper.  In a massively muddy event, Cooper showed his competitors a clean pair of heels to take victory with a maximum, with comeback man James Fletcher in second and Veteran John Elliot in third.  The conditions caught many racers out and with many others looking to try this discipline there could be some new faces on the rostrum.

THE BRITISH MX Dirt Track Championship round 1 was won by former AMA Supercross rider James White-Williams who was pushed all of the way by Swindon based Blaine Blackwell who took one race victory.  Again new faces are expected to take part in this event and local riders Martyn Hobbs and Michael Ranger are out to impress.

The Welsh Pitbikes sponsored Mini Bike Class will be entertaining as always and was won last time out by Devon MX ace Steve Martin ahead of STOMP works racer Luke Coker followed by Mini Bike Veteran Craig Lucas, with a full line up of two heats of racers taking part, MX rider Blackwell from Swindon will also be trying his luck in the Minis where he is a national champion.

A support class of Dirt Track Solos will also be on the gas, one to watch out for is local comeback man Rob Vincent who is enjoying a second wind within the sport.
