The penultimate round of the Scottish Motorcycle Racing Championships takes place this weekend at East Fortune.

The well-subscribed two-day meeting culminates with the Steve Hislop Trophy Race, held annually in memory of one of Scotland’s greatest racers.

Steve Hislop began his racing career at East Fortune and later became Scottish and British Champion and multiple Isle of Man TT winner. He was tragically killed in a helicopter crash nine years ago.

A packed race programme is promised with many of Scotland’s top racers taking part. Weather permitting, Saturday morning’s highlight will be a flypast from the RAF Red Arrows. Race commentary and interviews will be courtesy of Mose Hutchinson and Ian Robertson. Practice and qualifying start at 9am both days, with racing from around 11.30am.
