As a direct result of our collaboration over the last year with Gillian Sefton from Scottish Motor Sports (SMS) we put together a “Grassroots Motorsport Event” held at Forrestburn Speed Hill Climb Track. More than sixty people attended from a range of organisations, either participating or observing, including West College Scotland, Borders College, West Lothian College, Ayshire College,
Glenrothes Motor Club, Scottish Association of Motorsports Clubs (SAMSC) and Brite Technology.
The event was in the format of a Gymkhana and the young adults thoroughly enjoyed the event as the video will testify. However, because the drivers were very inexperienced the event took much longer than we anticipated so special thanks must go to the Marshals as the temperatures were very low.
The University of Glasgow put on a demonstration of their 2018 car that brought them great success this year. We visited UGracing a couple of months ago and this visit was a direct result of our offer at that time.
We hope that this is the start of a collaborative project (jointly with SMS) which links the Club to other symbiotic organisations and we would welcome the support of the MSCC membership in sustaining this effort.
