With the run up to the 92nd Scott Trial, the Clerk of the Course and his assistants have now fully assessed and plotted the route and sections. This year the route will run in reverse to normal, with the underfoot conditions being described as being ‘good to wet’.
The reverse route is necessary to adhere to the planning permission arrangements for this unique annual event.
If there is a bonus of a dry spell in the weather leading up to the Scott, then conditions would be perfect for this ‘trial of trials’.
With all this in mind, competitors are reminded to keep to the flagged route and not to deviate.
Spectators are similarly urged to abide by all warning and information signs and specific information given in the official souvenir programme priced at £5.00 with the proceeds going to the local ‘Scott Charities’ – and on the Richmond Motor Club website. This will ensure everyone has a good day trialling, one way or another.
Bruce Storr, a former Clerk of Course and the notable seeing eye, has penned his choices within his famous ‘spectator guide’ once again. This is an invaluable plan for those wishing to make good use of the day.
Storr continues to be a keystone in the event organisation, and his knowledge of the event is nothing short of legendary.
With yet another full entry of 200 riders, and the expectation of large crowds, it promises to be an exciting, event with the possibility that any one of the favourite riders can take home the Alfred Angas Scott Memorial Trophy.
The other prestigious award is for those riders aiming to set ‘Standard Time’, watch out for Sunderland’s Billy Bolt and local men, Jonathan Richardson, James Stones and John Sunter to name but a few who are all on a mission to succeed.
All that’s needed now is some fine October weather to make for a perfect Scott on Saturday, 21st ~ Bring it on!
