What are the bike specs?
In short what a Flat Track bike needs to have: 19” wheels with proper flat track tires (only Dunlop in England’s DTRA), no front brake, a cut off switch (which stalls the bike if you fall) and a shark fin at the back of your chain (this protects from getting between the sprocket and chain) If you have casted wheels you will need to cover them (with plastic) For more info on rules and regulations go to Regulations page.
What is the cost as a rider?
Training on Saturday €35,00 (+ €27,50 KNMV Day license)
To Race 1 class on Sunday €45,00 (+ €27,50 KNMV Day license) €25,00 for each additional class.
You have to buy your KNMV Basic Sport License - Grasstrack in advance!
Day license € 27.50 per day (do this before signing on for a race, as you need to enter your license number)
If you are riding 2 days, you need to buy 2 day licenses = €55,00
Or just buy a 'Basic Sports Licence' for a year = €60,00
For a "Basic Sports License" choose Grasstrack and sellect as club SRC - HR Flat Track (with that license you can also attend all flat track training sessions at Speedway Lelystad, which is on any 'dry' Sunday)
NOTE: for a KNMV license, select English as your language, so payment options are available with a credit card at check-out. You can read the KNMV instructions that apply to the license 'here' then go to http://www.knmv.nl/motorsport/Licenties/english/ and purchase your License.
here we briefly explain how the scoring takes place in the heats:
1st - 15 points / 2nd - 12 points / 3rd - 10 points / 4th - 9 points / 5th - 8 points / 6th - 7 points and so on...
The winner with the most points can first choose his place on the start grid of the Finals, with the 2nd in score doing the same and so on.
WHEELS AND TYRES
1. For Newbie, Vintage and Hooligan class all types of tyres are permitted except for knobbelies.
2. For all the other classes 19” wheels and Flat Track Tyres only!
where you can try the flat track sport on your old MX, Triumph, Scrambler, Street tracker... it needs to have that flat track feel... not sure... send us an email with a picture of your bike (we own the right to refuse you registration with an inappropriate bike) Just unplug your front brake and install a cut off switch (which stalls the bike if you fall) and add a shark fin at the back of your chain. Most important is that your bike is in full technical order ! Or you will not pass scrutineering. Go fast, turn left for a chance!
ROOKIE CLASS: where you can learn and improve your moves on your flat track bike, with 19" wheels and flat track tyres, cut of and a shark fin installed. Rookie class doesn’t have an imposition on cubic inches. If you ride very well in Rookie you will be asked to join AM Class.
AM CLASS: is open for all flat track bikes with 19" wheels and flat track tyres & safety specs as described above.
PRO CLASS: usually ridden on 450cc MX bikes which of course have been heavily tuned and tweaked. But we hope to see some framers as well in this class.
VINTAGE CLASS: what we are looking for here are old Triumph's, BSA's, Astro Bultaco's, XR's, WR's, WLA's etc. mostly pre 1970ish. If you are not sure your bike has what it takes to race in Vintage class, send us a mail including a photo. Ps: you don't need the proper dirt track tyres or 19" wheels.
THUNDER CLASS: is for singles from 600cc up with the same specs & safety specs.
HOOLIGAN CLASS: "DTRA Hooligan Championship Round 2"
for twins above 750cc with stock main frame (sub-frame may be modified) and little mods as a cut of, unplug front brake, ideally on dirt track tyres (but not essential) no knobblies and race!
MINI BIKE CLASS: ( up to 125cc mini dirt bikes)
you can register with XR, CRF, TTR and DRZ 125cc as these mine bikes are ideal to work on your riding skills... plus it's very fun to do and watch, since almost all riders have the same motorcycle. No mods are allowed, no exhaust mods... your bike must be completely standard ! You can change handlebars and sprocket sizes only.
NOTE: we have an open pits area, so you will need to bring a gazebo/tent and environment mat to place under your bike, the size of your whole bike (not just the engine)
