Bultaco back for another gathering
Following on from the success of 2017’s Bultaco gathering, Westmorland Motor Club is doing it again in 2018.
The date to mark down is Saturday, June 16, and it will be at the same venue as last year – which is near Holme Farm at Middleton, near Sedbergh.
Coniston Brewing, maker of some fabulous beers, will be sponsoring the event and guest of honour this year will be Alan Lampkin, who can count the SSDT and Scott trials among his victories, plus he has a host of scrambling wins and ISDT medals.
Known as ‘Sid’ throughout the trials world, Alan was BSA works rider for many years before an association with Bultaco came along.
Joining Alan will be a good number of other Lampkins including elder brother Arthur – a Bultaco sidecar exponent in the 1970s.
There will be a number of other Bultaco notables such as Californian Bernie Schreiber. He was world champion on Bultaco in 1979 and collaborated with Len Weed to produce a book on our sport.
Bernie will be fetching some memorabilia along to donate to the raffle, the proceeds of which will go to cancer charities.
He has recently been seen out on a trials bike at a few events so will likely be pretty near the sharp end of the results. For more information go to www.westmorlandmotorclub.com or Westmorland facebook page.
