2018 set to be a big year for UK Dirt Track!

2018 is set to be a really exciting year for UK Dirt Track racing with the MCF affiliated Dirt Track Riders Association working hard to put together an excellent 2018 UK series with some new twists.
 
Not everything is ready to go just yet but lots of people are asking about 2018 dates and the schedule.
 
One big change for 2018 is that they will be phasing out the use of Maxxis as a control tyre in favour of Dunlop. Dunlop will be their new control tyre for 2018. DTRA riders will have a chance to use up old Maxxis tyres during rounds 1 and 2 of the 2018 schedule but by round 3 only Dunlop tyres will be allowed in their adult classes. 
 
Another change is that some of our 2018 rounds will feature a new format where Pro and Intermediate riders (the restricted class will now be known as Intermediate ‘inters’) will qualify into a 36 rider main event that will be run in a new format. This won’t happen at every round the aim is to use this format as much as possible.
