Following the successful four-day off-road motorcycle festival at Drumlanrig Castle in June 2022, the Galloway Motorcycle Club have organised Scotland’s first 100 mile team scramble to be hosted at Cumstone Farm near Lockerbie. Community Windpower have committed £1,000 towards coordinating the event and are the sole sponsors.

The event, taking place across the weekend of the 8th October, will consist of a Saturday time trial, Saturday evening barbecue and the Sunday 100 mile team scramble event. Community Windpower’s £1,000 sponsorship will go towards funding for the various events across the weekend.

The original and most famous 100 mile team scramble originated near Pirbright in Surrey in the early 1960’s and quickly became well established and gained prestige status among the professional scrambling teams, who now take part in the events across the UK for top honours and substantial prize money. The classic scramble scene became hugely popular in the 1990’s with two leading clubs south of the border hosting new events in Berkshire and Chester but no event has yet taken place in Scotland, as far as anyone is aware.

The rules are simple, teams of two or three enter the event which is a relay race on a mile long track where team riders will take turns to complete 100 laps of the 1-mile course, in 24 hour Le Mans style. The race is a sprint to complete 100 laps first with only one team member present on the track at all times. Be sure to keep an eye on the pit lane as rider changeovers can be quite the spectacle.

The event will feature several well established riders from across England, Wales and Northern Ireland as well as Scotland’s own Scottish Classic Scrambles Club and The Scottish Twinshock Club.

Rod Wood, Managing Director at Community Windpower, said: “We are honoured to be the sole sponsor of Scotland’s principal 100 mile team scramble classic event.

“The historic event was presented to us by Fraser Dykes, Director at AMD Contract Service Limited, who we have previously contracted with to undertake civils work on our wind farm portfolio.

“We hope that the event can become a highlight in the annual calendar and a spectacle that tourists and the local community can enjoy for years to come. From the Community Windpower team and I we wish all the teams and riders the best for an epic weekend ahead”.

Sue Grant, PR and Communications at Galloway Motorcycle Club, said: “We are grateful to Community Windpower for the £1,000 sponsorship for our event. The sponsorship will allow us to ensure that all the visitors and spectators have a fun filled weekend, for all to enjoy”.
