We came, we saw, we rode dirt with some of the UKs best dirt track riders & racers, learned a few MX skills, jumped dirt jumps, camped out , hung out around a bonfire, met old friends & met a few new ones as well, all at the amazing Greenfield Dirt Track facility in Lincolnshire...... This was DIRT CAMP 2018!

Started in 2015 by The Dirt Track Rider Association as an initiative to get more women into flat track & ultimately racing in the DTRA series, DIRT CAMP has now grown into a weekend full of everything from complete learners jumping on a bike for the first time, advice & lessons from some of the UKs leading flat track racers (including the Incredible Leah Tokelove) about how to go fast & turn left, MX skills & enduro riding.

GREENFIELD LADIES DIRT CAMP WITH THE DTRA & VCC BY TOM BING

Last July VCC &  VC LONDON were honoured to team up with the DTRA & Greenfield Dirt track in Lincolnshire to host the third ladies Dirt Camp weekender.

The aim of this amazing event is to introduce & encourage more women into different motorsports & in particular dirt track racing & man is it one good weekend. With flat track & motocross lessons open to all ages & levels of rider from total beginners to experienced riders , these guys give up their free time to help further the womens motorsports community, give people more confidence to get burning on the track........  & they also have some pretty inventive ways to light a bonfire (!)

After we all made some new friends, shared some new skills & came away with huge smiles on our faces, dirt in our hair, a few bruises (and one bust lip) the amazing Tom Bing has come though with this rad video of the weekend to show everyone what Dirt Camp is all about & to spread the word.

A big thanks to Anthony, Anna (& all the DTRA crew) , George Pickering, Leah Tokelove & all the Greenfield family for putting on these incredible opportunities to grow the womens motorsport community in the UK. And a massive thank you to Tom Bing & Sally for the amazing video..... When can we do it all over again please???
