Indian Motorcycle DTRA Flat Track Championship Takes Off

Flat Track Attack

The Indian Motorcycle Flat Track Nationals series, presented by the Dirt Track Riders Association (DTRA), got off to a flying start at Kings Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena last weekend. A record entry list saw 197 racing competitors cross the start line over the two-day event; with representation from all ages across the varied classes, racers travelled from as far afield as Spain to contest the series, which is regarded as the premier flat-track championship outside the USA.

Race Director Anthony Brown Commented “We are really pleased to see the growth in the series this year in the UK and with the European series due to start next month we are really excited to see how things progress in 2019. Round 1 provided some amazing racing and awesome new machines. 2019 is looking very promising for the DTRA”.
Indian Motorcycle were represented on track by Krazy Horse Race Team riders Leah Tokelove (#37) and Lee ‘KP’ Kirkpatrick (#152), piloting modified Scout Hooligan machines.
Both riders quickly mastered the Speedway shale track surface at Kings Lynn Arena, laying down one race win each over the qualifying heats and securing strong podium positions overall. Having refined the Hooligan machines in Krazy Horse’s workshops over winter, Kirkpatrick blistered past old rivals from the 2018 series hot on the tail of Tokelove who secured consistent sub 19 second lap-times to claim fastest lap of the final race at 18.854 and a very well deserved P3 on the podium.
