DirtQuake will be televised again this year – it will air on Thursday 15 August at 20:00 on ITV4 and we’re very pleased to confirm that we’ll be joined over the weekend by John McGuiness, Steve ‘Stavros’ Parrish and Leah Tokelove. They’ll be commentating on the race finals and presenting the ITV4 DQ highlights programme.
John McGuiness’ has legendary status as one of the all-time great TT racers; the ever-entertaining Stavros has done his fair share of GP motorcycle (and truck!) racing and has been a regular face at the event in recent years, returning to the Eastbourne venue this August; and The Hooligan with Pigtails, Leah Tokleove, will have a busy weekend of it as she combines racing in the DTRA Hooligan Class with her TV duties.
The highlights programme will be all about bringing to life the action from DQ and showing what the UK’s best alternative motorbike festival is all about; flat track racing for allcomers centred around a “run what you brung” ethos. It’s a chance for us to share the love with the rest of the world!
