Indian Motorcycle European Flat Track series kicks off this May in Holland
This is a press release from Indian Motorcycles…
Europe (January 20, 2020) –
Indian Motorcycle is reinforcing its investment in the growth of European motorcycle sport with the Dirt Track Riders Association (DTRA) and are pleased to announce the race schedule for the 2020 Indian Motorcycle European Flat Track Series.
Following a successful inaugural series in 2019, Indian Motorcycle has worked with the DTRA to select events that embrace the spirit of Flat Track racing’s growing scene across Europe, ensuring that the Indian Motorcycle Flat Track Series championship is accessible and exciting for a wide range of rider abilities.
In last year’s action-packed Championship, Indian Motorcycle rider Leah Tokelove’s consistent riding throughout the year secured second in the overall standings, with Krazy Horse teammate Lee Kirkpatrick rounding out the European Hooligan Podium in third overall.
Three hugely popular classes will allow entries ranging from the thundering 750cc+ multi-cylinder Hooligan road-based machines—such as the Indian FTR 1200 and the Scout—to the open-entry Pro class dominated by lightweight DTX-based machines, and a growing Pre-1975 Vintage class.
All classes cater to the first-time amateur and Pro riders alike. With circuits for mixed ability—including fast Half Miles, tight short tracks and a TT—the championship series will showcase some of the best races in Europe, and promote the European Flat Track scene and its riders on a global scale.
Indian Motorcycle European Flat Track Series:
Classes: Hooligan, Vintage & Pro (Open class)
Indian Motorcycle European Flat Track Schedule:
(Four rounds, with the three best results to count):
- May 2-3 (Rnd 1) Hells Race, Holland – Light Shale Short Track – Open to all classes. Held at this well-established event at the Dirttrack Lelystad Stadium, this is a fantastic event to open the series.

Rider Registration: The series is free to enter, so even if you won’t make all the rounds it still worth getting your registration in; you never know you, may end up doing better than you think!
Prizes and benefits will be available only to registered riders. Registered riders will agree to abide by the rules of the series and the local rules and license arrangements of each local race organizer. Registrations will open during January and close just before the first meeting. Full rules for the 2020 series will be found on the DTRA website and, of course, locally at each event.
