VSCC Scottish Trial.

Recommended Posts

 It was the Vintage Sports Car Club Scottish trial today near Biggar, South Lanarkshire. Myself and a mate who I go marshalling at various motor events went up to help. Up at 4-30am, left at 5am and drove over to my mates for 6am arriving at the signing on at 7-am. No-one there and it turned out we were an hour early. Some one got an earwigging.  :teasing-poke:I could have had an extra hour in bed. After signing on and a free breakfast of bacon rolls and coffee we drove off to our first section.

  The VSCC trials are hill climb events, mainly in forests and unsurfaced tracks. I did take my camera and managed to take 4 photo's before the battery went flat. :rolleyes: 

 

 

The photo's don't really show the steepness of the hill, so you'll just have to accept my word that it was very steep. 45 degrees towards the top. Bad enough walking up and down it.

 Only about 10 out of the 51 entered made it to the 25 marker. Then had to reverse down.

 It is Alan. We went to a different section in the afternoon. That had a down hill run then up to a sharp right. Along a straight flat then sharp left up a short steep climb. Easy to clear except it had a stop start near the top. Only three cleared it.
