Seven-time US flat-track champion Chris Carr is running a one-day flat-track school as part of a UK visit in October.

The 9th October school is a unique chance to learn the secrets of going fast and turning left from one of the biggest names in the sport.

There’s only a handful of spaces left at £225 including bike rental (£125 if you have your own flat track racer). It will take place at the Rye House speedway track in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire. See www.ftexperience.com.

On October 8, he’ll also be the guest of honour at ‘An evening with Chris Carr at Peterborough Lions Rugby Club’. As well as talk from the sideways legend, there’s displays of flat-track bikes from the past and present, an auction of Carr’s 2008 Indianapolis Mile-winning leathers plus merchandise stalls.

Tickets are £8 in advance, £10 on the door – see www.sideburnmag.blogspot.com

On Saturday October 10 he’ll be making another personal appearance at Stratstone Harley-Davidson (www.stratstone.com/harley-davidson-bikes.html), and for his final UK appearance Carr will face up to Europe’s best flat-tracker racers at Rye House. Racing starts at 1pm, tickets are £10 for adults.
