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.
The main organiser is of course Peter Remington, himself an accomplished trials and motocross rider who enjoys the road run which takes in approximately 130 miles of rural Perthshire public roads.
It is a circular route which goes from Killin to Aberfeldy and into the Loch Rannoch area. There is also a lunch break on route for the participants.
The event starts and finishes at the McLaren Hall, Main Street, Killin FK21 8UH. Entry forms will be available from Peter by post: Peter Remington, Kenbrig, Levens, Kendal, Cumbria, LA8 8DT or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
The entry fee is £15 with £2 going to the local Bob MacGregor Motorcycle Club who provide local assistance.
Trials Guru representative, John Moffat took part last year on his father’s 1951 AJS 16MC and enjoyed it so much, he will be back in 2016 for another helping, this time on a 1964 AJS 16C short-stroke.
