Scottish Classic Grand National

And they’re off… the gate drops on the Pre-75 unlimited race.

Word going round the paddock at the Scottish Grand National MX was along the lines of “what a fantastic setting…” and it certainly was a great place to hold a scramble. Laid out by the Scottish Classic Racing Motorcycle Club’s scrambles section, the track was not particularly technical but provided lots of close racing with few spills and a great weekend for competitors and spectators alike.

CDB only managed one day – Sunday – which was fine, warm and sunny, though apparently Saturday had some interesting weather. In any case, the track was in prime condition thanks to the rain, with more than one rider saying how dusty it would have been otherwise.

Riders from several European countries such as Belgium, France and Eire, plus a few coming further afield from the USA and Australia, joined a full contingent of Scottish and English riders. On hand to mingle, mix and present an award or two at the end was former world MX champion Graham Noyce.
