Re­turn of Scot­tish Grand Na­tional MX

Classic Dirtbike - - News -

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.
