Cholmondeley Pageant Of Power Classic Scramble June 14th 2015…..Entry to ride at this event is by invitation only, I think it`s intended as a demonstration of classic scrambling as much as anything. An unusual feature that you don`t see at many events was the “Le Mans” type start, with riders having to run to their machines, when the start flag dropped. I may be wrong but I could not find any mention of the scramble when I looked at the official “Pageant Of Power” website, this seems a real shame, as the lads put on a terrific show by all accounts, when riders like Pete Mathia, Peter Hollinshead & Terry Challinor turn up, you know the racings going to be fast & furious. Unfortunately at one point the air ambulance had to be called out to the event, as one of the side car lads was injured when his own outfit rolled on top of him during a spill, apparently the steering damper broke, causing the front end to dig in & roll the bike over. On a more up beat note, various famous faces could be seen spectating, Sammy Miller for one & another was the great Dougie Lampkin, he popped over to have a look in between his own demonstrations in the main arena. If the event runs again in 2016, pop along, it`s well worth a look……Mr J
