Highland Classic 2021 voted a great success

The 2021 Highland Classic ‘FANTIC MOTOR; Edition was voted a great success by the riders and officials who attended the event. All feedback was positive, and that included the new for 2021 ‘Superloos’!

The Guest of Honour, Steve Saunders was impressed with the event as he had never been to Alvie Estate before and he spent some time in conversation with the estate owner, The Laird, Jamie Williamson who took time out of running the busy sporting estate, to chat with some of the riders who enjoyed a weekend of sport on his land.

This was the first year that Alvie & Dalraddy Estates, Event Manager, Suzie Crerar has been involved and she certainly made every effort to accommodate the Inverness & District MCC make the event a resounding success.

71 Fantic machines took part which we think is a record for marque attendance.

A new results method was implemented and managed by Secretary of the Meeting, Mieke De Vos, former SSDT Secretary.

The club are already planning the 2022 Highland Classic – The OSSA Edition. Entries will be online on 1st February on this website.

So, the Highland Classic returned in 2021 after Covid and was a welcome return for trials enthusiasts.

A full set of the results will be published shortly.

Gearing UP for 2021

At Highland Classic Trial HQ, we are getting prepared for the event on 12/13th June and have everything in hand and all running to plan and schedule.

All the supplies are currently being delivered from our suppliers and our Trial Partners to ensure that the 2021 event is a success.

We are always grateful to our Trial Partners, which includes the Laird and staff of Alvie Estates, Jamie Williamson and also the Alvie Event Co-ordinator, Suzie Crerar.

Obviously we are all working under current Covid protocols and guidance, so things wont be exactly as previous years.

However, we intend to have an awards presentation on Sunday afternoon with a splendid podium which is supplied, erected and sponsored by HIGHLAND TEMPORARY WORKS of Inverness.

The new podium will be there all weekend at the Trial HQ on Alvie Estate.

We encourage riders to get their photo taken at the podium pre-trial as their own momento of what is shaping up to be a greta weekend of sport.

Here is hoping the weather will be kind to us!

2022 The OSSA Edition

The 2022 Highland Classic will, like all trials since 2013, be a theme.

The theme for 2022 will complete the Spanish Trio of Bultaco (2013); Montesa (2018) with The OSSA Edition!

There will be a Guest of Honour with OSSA connections.

The organisers believe this will be a popular choice of theme, following a poll taken on facebook in 2020.
