DirtQuake 2017

Last year, Guy rode a Krazy Horse-built, heavily-raked Harley- Davidson in the chopper. Guy Martin wasn’t the only biking celeb keen to get sideways either – Hodgson, Gary Johnson and Carl Fogarty were all there, although some had more success than others... 

One of the fieriest races of 2017 was the Harley-Davidson race, which was overrun by riders on customised Street Rods. MCN’s man Glyn Pocklington put up a spirited fight but couldn’t quite match the speed of Pete Boast –as Boastie is a former national champion, we’ll give Glyn a break.

The scooter class was also a riot as a suited and booted man on a tiny Vespa attempted to chase down the 750cc ‘sort-of-a-scooter-but-not’ Honda X-Adv

One of the closest races was the Women’s as Toria James got to grips with the Indian Scout only to be pipped in dash for the line by Zoe David. 

With all the 2017 excitement, let's see what 2018 has in store.
