World Champion sidecar racer Tim Reeves and passenger Gregory Cluze dominated proceedings in the Jock Taylor Sidecar Memorial Race. In blistering heat the Double M Racing duo drove their Honda LCR machine to take the coveted Jock Taylor Memorial Trophy.
Reeves commented, “I got Jock’s autograph when l was about seven and to be standing here now as the winner of this special race is fantastic.”
Knockhill Events Director Stuart Gray said, “It’s been a hugely popular event for a number of years now and this weekend just goes to show the regard in which Jock was held.
“Top sidecar competitors from across the UK have made the trip to Knockhill in pursuit of the Jock Taylor Trophy.
“Hats of to Reeves and Cluze for there superb performance this weekend, they now join a very illustrious list of previous winners.”
A memorial service will be held for Jock this evening at Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy. The park which is the spiritual home of the Kirkcaldy and District Motorcycle Club will have racing machines of yester-year on display and a wreath will be laid in the memory of Jock Taylor – Scotland’s Sidecar World Champion.
World and European Stunt riding Champion Kevin Carmichael entertained the sizeable crowd with an array of bike riding stunts. Plucky Power-Images photographer Iain Struthers even volunteered to be a human guinea pig for one of Kevin’s stunts pictured below.
