English term or phrase: flat track race
Hello,
I'm translating a marketing document for a great motorcycle event. It features flat track races and bar-to-bar races. I'm wondering whether to leave these as is or try to find a French equivalent. It seams to be a very specifically american type of race in which riders are close to each other. I don't really get the difference between those two types of races.
Is there a biker here who could help me please?
