Our friends at uber-cool Sideburn Magazine are now on their fifth edition of their psycho speedway weekender called Dirt Quake. It took place at Kings Lynn speedway and Sam Wheeler from TSR went along.
“All the scooters entered were in the Inappropriate Road Bike class (funnily enough!). I don’t think the results are available mainly because the whole thing is really for a laugh rather than a serious race meeting. Competing scooters included a Yamaha Tmax and a Quattrini smallframe Vespa from France that they started up and revved right next to my tent each night at 2.a.m.
“It’s a great atmosphere, everyone is very friendly and the music is great too. Personal highlights included a very quick Marge Simpson racing around with massive blue head. Also Crazy Odgie from 100% Biker magazine somehow managing to win the chopper class (beating Guy Martin on a 1200 HD) using a somewhat rusty looking BSA.”
