DIRT WURX USA cranks out a superb track for the Belfast opener of the Brit SX Championships

DIRT WURX USA hops the pond and, in less than 24 hours, creates a masterpiece track for Future West Promotions at Ireland’s Odyssey Arena

MONROE, N.Y. (Oct. 26, 2010) – It was a “down and dirty” track build according to DIRT WURX USA’s Rich Winkler as he and the crew hopped an overnight flight to Belfast, Ireland, shot directly to Odyssey Arena and banged out a track in less than 24 hours for Future West Promotions and the opening round of the 2010-’11 British Supercross Championships.

Greeting Winkler and the DIRT WURX USA crew was some “better than normal” (for this rainy time of year in the region), Irish dirt.  “We had assistance in locating the equipment and the dirt from UK racer Gordon Crockard, and the trucking outfit is owned by a former racer, which was a big help.”  Winkler said.   Without skipping a beat DIRT WURX USA began crafting the floor of one of Ireland’s premier sports facilities into a world-class supercross track. The end result made for some great racing at the sold out event, despite the lack of the usual contingent of American racers.

“We were on it the entire time we were there,” said Winkler. “From move-in to move-out the down times were few and far between. The race went off well with three guys from different countries winning the three main classes. The place was sold out on Friday prior to Saturday night’s show and the fans definitely got to see some great racing.”

Winkler added that a number of MXGP teams showed up for the British Supercross Championship opener, including eventual premier class winner Evgeny Bobryshev (Russia) and the UK-based Monster/CAS/Honda team.
