THE Kendal Classic Club are to host a round of the British Classic Scrambles Championship for the first time at their Blencarn Classic Scramble on Sunday, June 13 at Lownthwaite Farm, Milburn, near Penrith.

The club are using the same piece of land as last year's event, which will see classic bikes from the sixties, seventies and eighties, fight it out just like they used to at tracks like Brownrigg Fell, Bootle and Helsington, Kendal.

This means they will have the very best riders the country has to offer on show, such as reigning champion Scott Hayworth, Carl Pope and Terry Challinor, and even ex British Champion Vic Allan. Entries have been received from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and the whole track can be viewed from the spectator area, and with catering, free parking and toilets on site, it should bring back memories of bygone times.

The club will be holding a raffle with proceeds going to a Cancer Charity.

All the old British bikes including Triumphs, BSA, DOT, Matchless and Tribsas will be in action, with the more recent Maicos, Yamahas and CCM’S fighting it out in the Twinshock classes.

Local riders include Adam Purdham, David Bateman, Ryan Glendinning, Bob Kerridge, Nigel and Gary Sowerby, David Lamb, Pete Lightfoot and Terry Kennedy.

The track will be signposted from M6 Jnc 40, turn off the A66 Penrith to Brough road at Kirkby Thore, approx 12 miles east of Penrith.

Practice gets under way at 10-00 and racing will commence at 11-30.

The club will also be hosting the annual Nostalgia Trial on August 14 and Scramble on August 22, at Holme Farm, Sedbergh.
