Midlothian riders in action at East Fortune

The Melville Motorcycle Race Club hosted an action-packed weekend of racing at East Fortune, with warm sunshine bathing the circuit all weekend until the final two races on Sunday, when the heavens opened and the track was flooded for the last sidecar race!

Among the riders was Jake Harkness, from Gorebridge, in the Sound of Thunder class, finising 10th and 11th.

Danderhall’s Michael Robertson wasn’t racing at East Fortune, having been away practising for his Swan Yamaha team ride in the British Superbikes, which takes place this weekend at Cadwell Park, allowing Paul Wishart and Bryan Duncanson to share the wins, securing the 600 Championship for Duncanson.

The resident team of Mose Hutchison and Ian Robertson provided race commentary, anecdotes and between-race interviews in their inimitable style. The next meeting at East Fortune will be September 15/16.
