cause and effect

“This will make a decent feature for the tech section in the next issue but first I must make sure I know what information I need to find out.” One of the big topics in mainstream press at the moment is E10 petrol and how it will reduce the impact on the environment. This is okay as far as it goes and I don’t doubt the idea behind this move to such fuels is well intentioned. From what I can gather as these theories are put forward is a wholesale switch to more ethanol in fuel will save the planet and be better for everyone. Sorry, not convinced. I’m not a scientist in any way, shape or form and it would be silly of me to pretend I was but a…

telford 2022

After months of uncertainty in the world in general rather than just the off-road world in particular, the big news for CDBers and classic dirt bike fans is the Classic Dirt Bike Show will return to the Telford International Centre on February 12-13, 2022. Hagon Shocks is once again pleased to be involved and like the rest of us, the Hagon team are looking forward to an excellent show.

new club gets some practice in

North East MXers have a new club to cater for their classic, twinshock, Evo and Super Evo needs. The newly formed Durham & Northumbria Scramble Club launched itself on the scene with a practice day at Blue Barns Motocross track near Lanchester in County Durham on Saturday, June 19. The track proved to be ideal for the ‘old school’ bikes the club caters for. Preparation of the track, including watering and grading, happened in advance of the riders arriving and the weather was superb on the day. Despite very dry conditions the track held up well although the dust did start to rise a little later in the day. The club ran three independent classes – Classic/Twinshock (Pre 84), Evo (85-89) and Super Evo (90-99). There were some spectacular bikes on display…

drumlanrig festival of off-road motorsport returns

The road to Drumlanrig 2022 continues at a pace. The dates for the diary are June 18-19, 2022 when Galloway MC hosts The Classic Grand National Scramble of Scotland. It won’t just be excellent MX action on a great track in front of Drumlanrig Castle either as this festival will include an oval grass track, a trials competition and road runs too to provide enough motorcycling action for everyone interested in all sorts of motorcycles. The road runs around the stunning countryside in which Drumlanrig Castle is sited and will highlight and showcase the Galloway area; if you’ve not been to this part of Scotland it is well worth the trip. Saturday evening grass tracks used to be a part of any scrambles gathering and Galloway tentatively tried to put a…

the three glens trial

In the day Galloway Motorcycle Club was not known as a trials club, despite having members who rode in the SSDT and other big feet-up events. However, there is in the relaunched club a thriving trials group who held their inaugural Three Glens Trial two-day trial in July which was based in the picturesque village of Moniaive in Dumfries and Galloway with facilities such as petrol, shop, hotel and a restaurant on hand. The club has access to thousands of acres offering good scope for a long lap with a variety of sections. Go to www.gallowaymcc.com to keep on top of things.…
