Dirt Track Riders Association (DTRA) Expand Series to Include European Championship with Indian Motorcycle’s Support
UNITED KINGDOM (January 28, 2019) – Indian Motorcycle will once again support the growth of grass-roots motorcycle sport alongside long-term partners the DTRA (Dirt Track Riders Association). Following a successful Hooligan championship winning campaign in 2017, Indian Motorcycle became headline partner of the DTRA last year (2018) which allowed for increased investment in the European Flat Track scene – Indian Motorcycle are proud to renew the sponsorship and continue their investment for the 2019 Series, allowing further growth of the sport in Europe.
The Dirt Track Riders Association has just announced its dates and full Series details for the Indian Motorcycle Flat Track Nationals 2019. The new European Series will feature the most popular classes; including the amazing spectacle of the street-bike based Hooligan class, at three showcase events. Alongside the UK Flat Track Nationals and the European Series, the DTRA is expanding the growing UK Hooligan Championship to run over a total of 6 rounds.
DTRA Race Director Anthony Brown:
“2019 is an important year for the DTRA and we are pleased to have the continued support of Indian Motorcycle. The 2018 season saw a massive increase in interest in the sport of Flat Track racing across Europe. We had so many riders visit us from all over the world that we thought it would be a good idea to pick the cream of European Flat Track events and create the first ever official Indian Motorcycle European Flat Track Championship.
We hope that the new Championship is the start of something special where we can really showcase the talents we are starting to develop in Europe and we look forward to sending the winning Pro-Series rider to compete in a race meeting over in the USA with the help of long-time friend of the DTRA Johnny Lewis of Moto-Anatomy as the championship prize.”
Indian Motorcycle actively encourage riders to get involved, the atmosphere at DTRA managed races is inclusive for all abilities with classes from Rookie to Pro-Rider. For full race schedules and details of how to enter visit www.dirttrackriders.co.uk
