Bul­taco back for an­other gath­er­ing

Classic Dirtbike - - News -

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.

Ex- world champ Bernie Schreiber is rid­ing.

Alan Lamp­kin is guest of hon­our.
