Scott Trial Charity Presentation Evening:

On Friday 7th April  at The Buck Hotel Reeth, The Scott trial charity donations were given out to many local recipients. The evening began with Treasurer Richard Hague giving a brief history of the Scott trial from its first running in 1914 up to its present day, Nigel Cummins, Richmond Motor Club President, then presented the cheques to the various charities, a number of which explained how the money would be spent.

A total of £10,975.00 was  given out this year, which included £3,475 raised by a charity team at the trial, for The Mark Adams Trust. This brings the total to over £160,000 since Richmond Motor Club took over the running of the trial in 1991. Many thanks to all who help and sponsor the trial, far too numerous to mention, and thoughts now turn to this years event which is on 21st October 2017. An excellent buffet then followed and one recipient (Mary Lovell MBE) even had a sit on a bike !!!!

The list of recipients are as follows (in no particular order) Swaledale Scouts, Swaledale Mountain Rescue ,Friends of Reeth and Gunnerside Primary Schools ,Reeth and GunnersideSchools Fund, Ravensworth Primary School ,Arkengarthdale Primary School, Yorkshire Air Ambulance  ,Great North Air Ambulance , Leyburn Primary School , Reeth Young Farmers, Swaledale Seedlings, St.Johns CentreWednesday Club ,RABI  ,Hambleton and  Richmondshire MS  Society,  Richmond Cricket Club youth ,Moorland Assoc, St.Teresa,s Hospice, DELTA, Holmedale Preschool ,Richmond Cricket Club, Wensleydale Rugby Club Development Fund,  Gamekeepers WelfareTrust ,ACU Benevolent Fund ,The  Mowbray Suite at the Friarage Hospital,  The Alistair Bullen Memorial Fund,  Homestart, Just The Job ,Robert Dent Memorial Fund,  Marrick Institute, and The British Lung Foundation

Message from The Scott Trial Secretary

Scott logo

To all SCOTT riders, helpers and followers

It will soon be here now and I hope that you are all ready for it.

I know you will be aware, but I wanted to say that The Scott takes a lot of time and effort to organise and a lot of people have been involved with this event, some even since the end of last year. To make this event as safe and as enjoyable for everyone, please read and take notice of any signage around the course and please respect other people and the property you encounter around the course.

Let’s make this year’s Scott a fantastic one.

Good luck to all of you riders and to everyone else, enjoy.

I’ll see you on Saturday !!!




We have had a gentle reminder from the Police asking us to make sure that you are all aware that any bikes using a public highway MUST be road legal – number plates, insurance, etc.

Whilst the Police are in support of the event, they have a job to do and, if any rider is stopped and found to be in breach of the regulations, there will be no exceptions and they may be prosecuted by way of a fixed penalty notice – or have their bike seized from them if it is uninsured and being ridden on a public road.

So, if you do retire from the trial and need to get back to the start field, please make sure that you don’t use the roads. If this is a problem, wait for a marshal and we will help you to get you and your bike back to the start field.
