With the Westmorland Club’s event growing in stature year on year, a good crowd came along to the 2018 Bultaco Revival Nostalgia Trial held in late June with the added attraction of watching the 1979 World Trials Champion Bernie Schreiber in action.
The competition, which was held at Holme Farm, Middleton, Sedbergh, Cumbria in the North of the country, is well supported by Finland’s three-time world trials champion Yrjo Vesterinen on a Bultaco, and he provided the American with a Bultaco from his collection on which to compete. Other invited guests included many of the old Bultaco team riders including Spain’s Manuel Soler, with Alan ‘Sid’ Lampkin representing the famous Yorkshire family. New to the trial was a ‘Team Challenge’ for the Martin Lampkin Team Event, in which any team of three riders on any combination of machine could take part. All entry fees for the team event were paid to charity. The 100-strong entry included nearly 40 Bultacos along with many other Pre-65 and Twin-Shock machines, providing a day of reunions for friends old and new and the chance to have a ‘Flashback’ to a golden era in trials enjoyed by so many.
