Race Preview: 2nd Krowdrace Cup Round at MC Mecklenburgring, Parchim

Updated: 5 days ago

The DTRA is really pleased to confirm that our planned trip to Germany for the 2nd Krowdrace Cup round at Motorsportclub Mecklenburgring, Parchim will be going ahead this September, and we’d like to invite our riders to join us and support this great European flat track racing event.



Presented by Indian Motorcycle, the Krowdrace Cup takes place over three weekends at three different tracks; the Parchim round on 19th and 20th September was to be part of our Euros championship.


We’d love to see as many DTRA riders as possible heading over to support our friends at Krowdrace, as they’re really looking forward to holding the event and welcoming us over!


Please note, this event will be going ahead provided that there are no further increases to the current COVID-19 lockdown rules in Germany, or changes that may impact travel between the UK and Germany. The safety of the DTRA and Krowdrace team, our volunteers and supporters is our priority and so if there are any crucial changes, we’ll respond accordingly and send out an update, but we can’t be held responsible for any cancelled or impacted plans or financial loss. Travel to the event, and participation remains entirely at your own risk. Thanks for your understanding!
