Race Preview: DTRA Nationals Round 4 & Hooligans Round 3 2021, Adrian Flux Arena, King’s Lynn

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the DTRA sadly won’t be making its usual summer trip to Redcar Speedway this season and is instead heading back to Adrian Flux Arena in King’s Lynn, Norfolk for the next round of flat track racing on Sunday 15th August, presented in partnership with Indian Motorcycle.


This replaces the advertised Round 5 event; as we were only able to run one round of racing at Amman Valley in July rather than the scheduled two, this race meeting will represent Round 4 of our Flat Track Nationals championship, and Round 3 of Hooligans.



All classes will race on Sunday, meaning it’s going to be a busy but fun day. We hope all of our riders are still able to make it to the changed venue, and thank you all for your support in what is still a difficult time to schedule race meetings.


This race meeting will be open to spectators. All attendees are requested to wear face masks at all times within the arena, car park and camping areas, and also 'Check In' on the NHS COVID-19 app upon arrival.


Here’s everything you’ll need to know about getting ready for racing at Adrian Flux Arena.

Weather


We can’t guarantee the weather, but it’s good to know what the weekend has in store for us. Keep an eye on the King’s Lynn weather forecast below so you know what gear to pack.



In case you’re wondering, we only ever call off races if the weather forecast is exceptionally poor. We appreciate that many of our riders have long distances to travel to races, so if a race needs to be called off, we always aim to make the announcement in plenty of time beforehand, and attempt to schedule a rain date after the end of the season.


Thanks everyone for your understanding with our change of venue. Hopefully this covers any other questions ahead of our Round 4 event, and we look forward to seeing you all there. If you have any further questions, PLEASE check our website first to see whether your query is answered there - otherwise, please just drop us an email at info@dirttrackriders.co.uk, or message us on Facebook and we’ll get back to you as quickly as we can.


Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram too, and of course keep checking this blog for photos, videos and updates throughout the racing season.


To all riders, travel safe, and see you at the races for our penultimate meeting of the season - let’s make it a memorable one.
