In 2017 our Richard Hollingsworth and racer Odgie Danaan came up with the idea of running a flat track festival weekend at Scunthorpe. 16th June 2018 saw Dirt Diggers 1; Dirt Diggers 2 ran on 15th June 2019 before Covid-19 put back Dirt Diggers 3 from 20th June to 19th September 2019. The most recent Dirt Diggers, number 4, was run on 26th June 2021 and, everything being equal DD5 will take place in June 2022.
The event sees even more classes than for our regular meetings and most involved stay over on the Friday and Saturday nights to make a weekend of it. The first two events had a disco and party in the clubhouse but Covid-19 forced that outside for the last two. Hopefully DD5 will see us return to the clubhouse.
When we know the British Speedway Grand Prix date for 2022 then we will hopefully be in a position to announce the date and all details for Dirt Diggers 5.
