National Scramble of Scotland

Now in its third year, this wonderful event organised and promoted by the busy bee workers of the Galloway Motorcycle Club Ltd, has already become something of a national treasure among classic motocross fans, and this year’s event was just as superb as the previous two – maybe even better.

For the members of the Galloway club leave absolutely nothing to chance and no stone unturned in their efforts to make this meeting so memorable for both riders and spectators alike.

Indeed, the Classic Grand National Scramble of Scotland has rapidly become a cherished event in the classic motocross calendar. And it is easy to understand why.

A wonderful line-up of JAP Mettise machinery, owned by Cecil Pearson and known as the JAP Racing Team, turned out at Drumlanrig Castle.

Take a mysterious Scottish castle built high up on the side of the valley of the river Nith.
