Sam’s the man for Moidart


Organisers Andrew Johnstone and John McCrink are pleased to announce that the 11th Moidart Peninsula Classic Motorcycle Road Run will take place on Thursday, April 30, 2020.

They are delighted to add that the guest of honour for the event is none other than trials legend and all-round motorcyclist Sammy Miller.

Sammy is no stranger to the Highlands, having competed in the Scottish Six Days Trial on several occasions, winning the event no less than five times.

Sandwiched between Moidart organisers John McCrink (on the left) and Andrew Johnstone is the legendary Sammy Miller, guest of honour at the 2020 event.

He is looking forward to returning to Lochaber and will, of course, take part in the run itself.

At 86 years young he is as keen on motorcycling now as he was way back in 1954 when he made the long journey from his native Belfast on his Villiers-powered ‘Samuel Hamilton Special’ to the Scottish Highlands to compete in his first SSDT.

Not surprisingly, he returned home with the Best Newcomer’s Award in his rucksack.
