Brit bike bonanza

Better known as a trials rider, Gordon Jackson was no slouch on a scrambler

As was general for the time in works teams Jackson was expected to compete in everything from trials to ISDT and Gordon’s name is on scrambles trophies, ISDT medals and most famously the Alexander Trophy for his one dab win at the 1961 SSDT. After his top-line two wheeled career drew to an end, the lad took to four wheels with car trials and was just as good in that arena too.

The main focus for the event of course is the Sunday scramble on the fabulous Sallywood Park track, Horsley, Nailsworth, Stroud in Gloucestershire. The testing track with a massive hill climb in it provides excellent entertainment for the spectators and a challenge for the riders. The day before there is a sporting trial taking in many old sections in the area. For more details call Rickman Motorcycles on 01453 758026.
