Llanthony Classic Scramble 2015 Photos…..Eric Miles made his last trip out for this season to Court Farm for the the final round of the 2015 British Championship & he found there was still everything to race for. As ever the riders had to face the challenge of racing flat out on wet & extremely slippery fresh grass, if you are new to the world of classic scrambles & are thinking that this type of racing is an easier option that modern motocross, then think again. The skill required to balance both the throttle & brakes is a fine art, over do anything on this covering of “Green Ice” & you hit the deck, until the track has been worn in a bit, there is usually a total absence of any ruts or berms to help negotiate the turns.
The record book will show that after a long season of racing & travelling many miles around the country Ricky Pedder had won the Pre-65 Championship & Wayne Partington had taken the Pre-74 Championship, that same record book won`t mention all the other riders & clubs that organise the events, so thank you & well done to all involved. That`s pretty much it until 2016, my thanks go to Mr Eric Miles for allowing me to display all his wonderful images, I think he has travelled more miles & photographed more events this season that ever before, he gives the sport of “Classic Scrambling” more exposure that anybody else & helps keep the flame burning bright, ready for the next generation of classic racers….Mr J
