I am sure you can all appreciate the Scottish Six Days Trial is our busiest period of the year as we prepare all aspects of the trial for the magazine.

I am thrilled to say that we have tremendous support in all areas and would like to say a huge thank you to the following: Edinburgh & District Motor

Club Limited, all officials and observers, the people of Fort William and the surroundin­g areas, Nevis Radio — in particular Simon Abberley, John Moffat and John Weller, The Garrison Hotel, Ben Nevis Bar and Restaurant, Michelin Tyres, Honda UK, Repsol Honda Team, Mickey Oates Motorcycle­s and Graham Foster-Vigours, all the product suppliers including Apico, Trial Enduro Direct, Camio Moto, Martin and Sheri Murphy and Leven Homes, David Dench and the team at Triangle Kia, our wonderful photograph­ers headed by Eric Kitchen, Mike Rapley, Neil Sturgeon and Nigel Pearson, the Army and Sandy Mack and, of course, all the fantastic and appreciate­d support from all our advertiser­s, subscriber­s and readers of both Trial and Classic Trial Magazines. If I have missed anyone, I do apologise.

The final word goes to my wonderful and supportive wife, Jane; I could not do it all without you. Again, I apologise for the six o’clock starts in the mornings and late nights working during the SSDT week. XX.


Once again, the charity-supported Nevis Radio Station, sponsored by Michelin and Trial Magazine, was on air all six days. The whole team did a sterling job which was rewarded with fantastic viewing figures (see below).

A weekly total of user base/ listener/viewer stats of around: 607,045. 472,731 website player clicks for the week. 10,242 YouTube views on our website player. 7,072 weekly total on YouTube direct. We were also listened to in 113 countries over the week. The estimated FM listenersh­ip is 13,500 locals across Lochaber plus 6,000 visitors daily for SSDT week. Figures do not include our listen-again options on YouTube or Mixcloud, which are there to watch or listen back at any time, and any social media interactio­n, likes, shares or clipped content by thirdparty users.
