Dirt Quake IV 2017
Davida have supported Sideburn's Dirt Quake one way or another since its conception 6 years ago. A unique dirt track event combining DTRA racing with a 'run what you brung' for ordinary bods racing inappropriate bikes, all wrapped in Dave Arnold's pieces of crowd pleasing silliness. Big difference for Dirt Quake this year was its acquisition from Sideburn by North 1 TV, whose cameras and presenters filled the event to create a TV programme, to be broadcast on ITV 4 Wednesday night 12th July at 8pm
For Dirtquake Team Davida were given the New Davida Speedster V3 - not only approved to ECER22-05 & DOT it is now ACU Gold approved for racing.
Normally gracing the cover of the Davida Catalogues or in our Adverts, Davida's Jasmine Barnett raced Dirt Quake on the red Honda XR 200 & made it to the Ladies final, only to stall at the start line. 'Gutted' was her response.
For the 2nd year, Davida's, Luija Jensdottir was the only woman to choose to enter and race with the men in the Inappropriate Road Bike Class. Previously racing Dirt Quake as a bright green Frog , for 2017 she chose a red & black Jester suit to race in. Supported By Dave, Luija built her Honda 250cc Dirt Quake machine, which together with her road bike was trailered home from Dirt Quake due to her high side injury. 'Painful' was her response !
For the 4th year running Davida's Jules Watts raced for Davida in the IRB Class. In the same race as Luija, he found her on his tail just before she high sided in the first round which forced her to retire from racing for the remainder of the weekend.
New to the Dirt Quake Davida Team was Pasha Cox in the 125cc Class racing his home built Honda fitted with a 1940's James Captain rear end.
Long term Davida Dirt Quake Racer, Mike Johnson raced in the DTRA and IRB
For the 3rd year running the Davida Campsite hosted spectators and DQ Racers and DTRA racers from Friday through to Monday morning
