Drumlanrig Castle will play host to the second running of the Scottish Grand National MX over the weekend of July 14/15.
Such was the success of the first one last year the castle was delighted to welcome back the Galloway Motorcycle Club for bigger and better things.
CDB was there last year and was impressed by the setting, the popularity and the friendliness of the meeting.
This year guest of honour will be former world 500cc MX champion Brad Lackey. The Californian was one of a new breed of MX stars in the 1970s who brought colour, tenacity and flamboyance to the scrambles scene as it morphed into MX.
Okay, so there was a little controversy too with these new guys but the racing, the bikes, the development was all at a massive pace and the sport was the better for it. You can relive those days at Drumlanrig.
AMD Contract Services will again be supporting the event and classes will be for pre-68, pre-75, twinshocks, under 50s, over 50s and the Scottish Grand national.
We’ll have more information as it comes, meantime head to the Galloway Motorcycle Club’s facebook page for the latest scoop.Enjoy more Classic Dirt Bike reading in the quarterly magazine. Click here to subscribe.
