Not long to wait now until the start of this year’s famous Scott Trial!

Riders are you ready?  Bike fit and bike all prepped?  Please make sure that your bike is well prepared and ready for scrutineering in the morning.

Spectators and riders alike have a fabulous day and please do respect the area and local road users, who may not be following the trial.  Please take note of any signs, they are there for a reason and any notices of road closures or one way systems.

Don’t forget that we have lots of wonderful items on offer at the Charity Auction on Saturday evening at Richmondshire Cricket Club, Hurgill Road, followed by the results and presentation of awards.

Good Luck to all riders – feet up and stay safe!

With the run up to the Scott Trial, Paul Robinson Clerk of the Course, and his assistants have now assessed and plotted the route and sections, new and old. This year the route will run in reverse, with the underfoot conditions ‘good to wet’, add in the bonus of a dry break in weather leading up to the big day, and conditions are perfect for the event.

With this in mind, Paul reminds all riders to stick to the flags and not deviate. Spectators, remember to abide by all signs and information given in the souvenir programme and on the Richmond Motor Club website. This will ensure everyone has a great day!

With yet another full entry, and the expectation of large crowds, it promises to be an exciting, high octane event with the possibility that any one of your favourite riders can take home the Alfred Scott Memorial Trophy.

The other prestigious award is for those riders aiming to set Standard Time, watch out for Jonathan Richardson, Billy Bolt, James Stones and John Sunter to name a few who are all on a mission.

All that’s needed now is a ‘nod from the Gods’ to supply the weather!
