The Melville Motorcycle Club welcomed a massive number of spectators, when, for the first time, the Jock Taylor Memorial Trophy race meeting was hosted at East Fortune race circuit at the weekend.
Pencaitland’s Jock Taylor, the only Scot to have won the FIM World Championship, was killed in a tragic accident whilst racing in Finland in 1982.
Current trophy holders – Fife’s Scott Lawrie and passenger, James Neave from Lincolnshire – were up against several top teams, but put in a special performance, including setting a new lap record, to keep the trophy in Scotland.
Danderhall’s current 600 and Thundersport champion, Michael Robertson, was away on duty with the Swan Yamaha BSB team on the Saturday, but was at East Fortune to spectate on the Sunday.
The next meeting at East Fortune is on August 18 and 19.
