News and reviews about the Classes

The Strathearn Tyres F125 series continues to bring along the youngsters into the sport and for 2008 Oban’s John McPhee came out at the top of the Championship after a season long battle between Ewan Gray and brother and sister Sammi & Andrew Tasker.

On the Classic scene, brothers Mark & Willie McGaw who along with Dunfermline’s Robert Grey were the regular names on the results sheet for most of the 2008 season. Run alongside the Classics, is the Forgotten Era class that is run to the National Forgotten Era regulations and was dominated in 2008 by Ian Thomson on his Yamaha.

The 400 Production class, sponsored by Cupar Motorcycles & Pirelli Tyres for more than a decade has undertaken a huge change for 2009. Scrapping the controlled tyre and now running to British standard Formula 400 rules.  Last year this was dominated by Paul Christie who was back riding his own machine.

In 2007 the Club introduced a new 600 Production class and in 2008 it was dominated by Edinburgh’s Michael Robertson.  He won every round of the series (apart from a third place) to win the title by a staggering 93 points.

Supersport 600, well who would have thought that multiple Scottish Champion, John Macdonald (back from retirement) would not only be back for another go but would lift the Scottish Championship Supersport 600 Title on a Digby Brown sponsored Triumph the first time since 1972.
