Indian Motorcycle Partners With Swiss Dirt Track Association

Swiss Cheesin’

Continuing the growth of Flat Track racing in Europe, Indian and “Steel Trophy #1” bring the drift show to Swiss crowds with opponents racing around an unpaved oval track.

Flat track racing, also known as dirt track motorcycle racing, originally popularized in the States in the 1960s and 1970s, is now gaining popularity in Europe. Along with the retro and vintage trend in production motorcycles, more and more Europeans are now competing on motorcycles that have been specially prepared for this sport.
The Swiss Dirt Track Association (SDTA) wants to introduce the sport for the first time on August 10, 2019 in Payerne to a broad Swiss audience at the “Steel Trophy #1” because flat track is an explosive show – with its special retro and vintage flair – that takes place on and off the race track. The paddock is freely accessible, the riders, mechanics and other team members are traditionally friendly with each other and interested visitors can experience the personalities and technology up close.
