After only five days promotion, the Inverness and District Motorcycle Club annual Highland Classic Two-Day Trial is now full up at the 130 rider maximum.
Held on the picturesque Alvie Estate, near Aviemore in the Scottish Highlands, the event celebrates ten years as a two-day affair. This year the guest of honour will be Bill Wilkinson, the last British rider to win the Scottish Six Days on a British built Greeves machine!
Now surely a victim of its own success, it was the ‘brain-child’ of club Chairman, Malcolm Smith who has been a long standing trials rider and regular observer at the SSDT, the event started as a one day trial back in 2004, elevated to a two-day event the following year to make it worth the stay for riders south of the border.
It is a Pre’65 and twin-shock event combined with two routes to choose from for all classes.
The event was publicised in Classic Trial Magazine as part of a sponsorship deal and the event has been building in stature over the past three years when the club decided to have a special guest annually.
Previous guests have been Yrjo Vesterinen in 2013 and Dave Thorpe in 2014.
The trial is held on the shooting estate and will be on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th June 2015.
