The motorcycle racing season kicks off at East Fortune this weekend, when the Melville Club hosts two rounds of the Scottish ACU Championships.

In addition, the motorcyclists will be competing in the much fought over club championships.

The full race programme, with almost 200 competitors, features some of Scotland’s best motorbike and sidecar racers, and three out of the five 2014 Scottish Champions are returning to defend their titles, including Andrew Tasker on the superbike and Gordon Shand on the sidecars.

Classes include Superbikes, Sound of Thunder, Superstock 600, Classics, Pre-Injection, Sidecars and Formula 125.
