Galloway Motorcycle Club’s Classic Grand National MX at Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries has spurred the club on to greater efforts for 2019. With club members from all areas of the sport, their aim is to move this once great club forward and regain the prominence it had 50 years ago.
To promote this ideal, they returned to Drumlanrig Castle in August for the excellent Galloway Country Fair where they had a stand promoting all things motorcycling and launched their intent to organise trials.
With current Scottish trials champion Craig Houston and Dougie Lampkin, 12 times world trials champion, multi-winner of the SSDT and Scott Trial wowing the crowds, the promotion was deemed a success, despite the weather Craig had to deal with.
Dougie seemed to be enjoying it just as much as the fans and afterwards both riders mingled, happily signing autographs and giving out posters. Superb! What a way for the Galloway Club to launch their trials intentions.
2019 looks like it’s going to be another busy year for everyone involved with Galloway MCC so go to www.gallowaymcc.com/blog for all the latest news.
You can visit the club stand, to find out all the dates and events for the coming year, at the Classic Dirt Bike Show, Telford, Shropshire on February 16/17, 2019
