The annual Bob MacGregor Memorial road run for 2016 will take place on Tuesday 26th April, the week prior to the Pre’65 Scottish and the Scottish Six Days Trial.

The 2016 will have guest of honour, Bill Brown from Egremont, known affectionately as Mr. Wulfsport or even Mr. Maico given his connection with the German motocross marque and the world famous Wulfsport clothing brand which he created back in the 1970s.

Bill was a top motocross rider who raced predominately in the North West and Scotland, who ran Bill Brown Motorcycles.
