Brandon To Stage British Dirt Track Championship Opener

Last updated : 18 January 2012 By Covsupport News Service

THE 2012 British Dirt Track Championships will kick off with the Opening round taking place at the Brandon Speedway Stadium in Coventry on Saturday 10th March.

The events start with Qualifying rounds at 2pm with the top racers meeting the seeded riders in the evening Main Event at 7pm.

This year the series also includes an MX class, adding to the Dirt Track Solo, Quad and Mini Bike classes from 2011. The MX class is a great way to introduce new riders to Dirt Track racing and will provide great racing as the Mini Bikes did last season. The Dirt Track Solo class which sees the slider frames take to the track was convincingly won in 2011 by Chattam based Dan Berwick but with some new faces looking to get themselves in the mix it should be a tough contest.

The Quad action incorporates the 21st staging of the coveted QRA British Quad Oval Championship which as been won by Reading based Oval ace Carl Bunce for the last 2 seasons. With many more riders looking to try the sport for themselves the competition should be hot.

With loads of races, lots of fierce sprint racing action this an event that will be hot enough to warm everyone up for the new season!
