Dirt Track racing is one of the oldest disciplines of Motorcycle racing in Australia, with many of our facilities dating back to the 1960’s.
Dirt track racing involves competitors navigating a flat, smooth racetrack, which can be either oval shaped or feature an ‘S’ bend in the middle.
The ability to maintain a high cornering speed and ‘slide’ the motorcycle is key to Dirt Track racing, with surfaces ranging from loose granite to oiled dirt. Races are short and sharp, usually no longer than 4-5 laps. The tracks range from 400m (short track) to 1000m (long track).
Dirt Track racing has traditionally been considered a gateway to road racing, with many of Australia’s top road racing competitors having honed their craft through learning to slide in Dirt Track racing.
Dirt track is for all ages and abilities at it lends itself to a starting point for other disciplines. Whether its riding as a race competitor, for recreation or participation as volunteer, official or spectator there is a place in the Dirt Track community for everyone.
