THE 15th annual classic motorcycle scramble is coming to Sloley Park on August 9 and 10.

Sloley Park at Berrynarbor, near Combe Martin, will play host to the event, which will feature only pre-1974 classics and two races from the British Classic Scrambles Championship on Saturday.

Twin-shock bikes will join the classics on Sunday, which over the past two years has led to some fantastic racing.

A three-lap parade for riders who competed before 1980 is also planned. Anyone who wants to be part of the parade should contact Graham Brown on 01237 470267 or email graham.fircrest@virgin.net.

For trials fans, the club will be running a trial on the Saturday evening, open to any type of trials bike with entries are taken from 5pm on the day.

Admission is £5 per day, with free admission for any accompanied child aged up to 14 years old. Camping facilities are also available at £5 pre night per pitch.
