There will be Scotts racing at Cadwell Park in early July
Friday July 9th and Saturday July 10th is the most friendly and excellent Beezumph.
This is an event run by the BSA Triple / Rocket 3 O/c with many racing stars of the 70’s both attending and competing. I understand that Charles Windsor will be there with his Scott as well as myself racing for the first time since last year’s “prang”
On Sunday at Cadwell Park, there is the VMCC full circuit vintage races. Paul Dobbs will be riding my bike in this event.
Three days of Scott racing with friendly faces and other interesting machinery.
Why not have a camping weekend to remember!

Forgive me if it goes all wrong, these are “dark forces” the nature of which I have little nollidge. By pressing “Reply” I presume I’m replying to Roger Moss,
Hi Roger, re. Beezumph, will you be on the track Fri. or Sat. or both?
P.S. See the old messageboard for earlier reply, & thanks for the explanation re. 4 bearing crank!!
Beezumph Fri 9 july is european day, so I will ride the Scott and Ducati. It will be my first outing since last years crash and the bike has been re arranged to suit Paul Dobbs, so please don’t expect fireworks!
On Friday we get some good exotica from europe.
Saturday July 10th is British only day so I will be out on the Scott only. It is great fun pitting it against Tridents and often prevailing to the chagrin of proud owners and general amusement of spectators. I have become a little like an unofficial mascot at this meeting and once walked away with “Man of the meeting” award and “Best Competition bike” Considering the gleaming ranks of the triples and it was at their meeting, I thought this was quite generous!
Saturday is the VMCC long circuit Cadwell meeting and Paul Dodds will be riding the Scott. I need to get it on the dyno or fiddle about on the Beezumph days, as Paul says he loses ground to Ian Bain whose “Norton” motor is full of Jawa bits and runs on funny fuel. Two years ago, my bike was equally fas and accelerated and braked better, even if the handling was a bit frightening! In truth, I feel a bit of a fraud watching Paul ride it, but I made a deal and he is pushing me to sort things out that I never had time to do for myself.
So, If you can spare a weekend, or a day, do consider coming to Cadwell as this must be the very best weekend of the year! Kind Regards
Thanks for the info, Roger,
I shall already be involved at the VMCC meeting on the Sunday. My problem is that my first wife does not share my interest in bikes, & in deference to this I have to ration my time to that which meets with domestic approval!
I certainly won’t get away with 3 days on the trot!!
((Got to work on this one, perhps she ought to visit family in Kent for a few days?— watch this space!!))
