Scott Fever 2021

The Richmond Motor Club (Yorkshire) Ltd’s Scott Trial committee have been working hard behind the scenes to kick start the return of the annual time and observation event which will make a welcome appearance back on the trials calendar on Saturday 16th October.

The event has been cancelled twice, due to the global pandemic and returns with a new Clerk of the Course, Nathan Stones who has been part of the organising team for many years. He will be ably assisted by Bruce Storr, himself a former Scott Trial Clerk of Course.

The event is run on behalf of the Yorkshire Centre, ACU by the Richmond club and 2021 marks 30 years of the club’s involvement, having taken the organisation over from the Darlington & District Motor Club in 1991.

Marjorie Cottle’s 1926 Scott Trial Finisher’s Certificate when riding for Raleigh Motorcycles. At this time, the Bradford & District club organised the Scott Trial. (This certificate forms part of the ‘Marjorie Cottle collection’ of memorabilia which is privately owned).

There is always a lot to do in the organisation of this prestigeous event, with much negotiation with the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and the many landowners, farmers and estate management representatives who give permission for the event to take place.

It is hoped that the usual Scott Charity auction will also make its return, prior to the prize-giving at Richmond School on the Saturday evening.

Entries closed on Friday, 10th September.
