HARD-SHAKE will be the first South African indoor concrete flat track fun day, with the emphasis on fun. The event has been held in the USA, but we are the FIRST to do it in SA.
The event will be held on Saturday the 12th of August 2017 and will consist of an afternoon oval track fun. This event will be hot on the heals of the US and UK outdoor Dirt-Quake series run by Sideburn Magazine, that over the past 2 years have featured the legendary Guy Martin.
The event will take place in a large warehouse with a concrete surfacing, straw bales will encircle the track, ready for riders to try riding whatever they bring to the day.
There will be ample space and straw bales for seating or standing to watch the action. We want to have several motorcycle classes so we have invited groups such as the Vesparados, to come try out their Vespas, as well as the Motard community. We have also invited SOG to come try their sportsters in the Oval.
The event is in mid-winter, providing the perfect opportunity for people who love to ride to bring their bikes out from under the covers and have a go at the indoor oval track, no rain, just good clean fun. With the success of this event we intend to do a bi-annual event, this indoor version in winter and an outdoor event in summer.
This is a FUN DAY not a race day, the emphasis will be on the social aspect and bringing the community together and trying out a new riding format that is now taking the world by storm, with Flat Track racing even being included in the X games.
