Kendal Classic Revival Scramble

20/08/2018

Westmorland County Show Ground recently played host to an exciting Kendal Classic Revival Scramble. The Scramble was once again arranged by the legendary Westmorland Motor Club who have been running scrambles in the theKendal area since 1910 which is when the club was originally established.

Lloyd South Lakes was proud be one of the sponsors of this latest Bultaco Nostalgia event and took along a wonderful display of BMW &MINI models which attracted lots of attention from the show crowds.

Guests of honour this year included Alan Lampkin who can count Bultaco among the factory teams he has ridden for along with his elder brother Arthur, who took on the challenge of three wheels in the Seventies and used Bultacos to power his outfits. Joining the Lampkins was 1979 world trials champion Bernie Schreiber. Bernie is famous for launching onto the unsuspecting rivals world and gave it a big shake in the mid-70s. His riding style took the sport to new levels and heralded a new generation of riders as he took his Bultaco to world success.

A very slick Honda CR 250 Honda Twinshock classic dirt bike belonging to Luke Freudenau, also known as the Red Rocket was spotted in the paddock along with Swedish Motorcross legend Ove Lundell’s Monark race bike.

The weather held out and added to a great day of old-fashioned vintage classic scrambling. Competitors enjoyed races throughout the day on a brand-new track which saw bikes from a bygone era of the 50s 60s through to the late 70s early 80s.
