Jeff Wright Memorial Scramble

Hello all, it’s been a few months since I last posted here on this blog. So finally the country is starting to open up again and this was the first the camera has been out bar a few photos around home. The Jeff Wright memorial scramble ( motocross being the more modern name) is run by the Ulster Classic Motorcycle Club ( http://www.ulsterclassicmotorcycleclub.com) They only allow bikes built before 31 Dec 1984 / air cooled/drum brakes to race at UCMCC events. All proceeds from this meeting go to Motor neurone disease association the disease that took the life of Jeff Wright.

The event was run at the Laurelbank MX Park in County Down Northern Ireland and owed by the Temple Motor cycle and Athletic club.

There where three grades of riders A,B and C, the photos posted are in no particular order and I apologize if I get any names wrong.

If you got this far, thank you. There are many more images for the race event, but hopefully you got a flavour of the evenings event. An event like this is not all about the racers but also about the people who attend the event. The families and friends who support the racers, the first aiders and organisers, the marshals who give there time so we can enjoy an evening like this in safety. Thank you all. To Raymond aka Nick a pleasure to meet you and hi to Billy Keenan ( number 60 ).

Stay safe and enjoy life

George.

  1. Thank you, it was good to get out plus it was good to view the type of bikes i raced in the late 70’s. The smell of 2 stroke oil is something that’s gone from todays bikes.
    I like the small changes on your site and we still get a glimpse of cute little Harper.
    Take care my curious introvert
