2012 sees the Scottish Six Days Trial (SSDT) enter its second century, with nine days of motorcycling entertainment being held in Fort William and the surrounding Lochaber region of the Scottish Highlands from 4th - 12th May. The main trial takes place from 7th - 12th May and SSDT organisers, the Edinburgh and District Motor Club, are pleased to confirm the following details.
Kicking off the entertainment in the village of Kinlochleven this Friday and Saturday will be the nostalgic Pre’65 Trial, a must for anybody with an interest in older bikes. On Sunday the SSDT takes over and visitors can enjoy the spectacular sight of all 275 SSDT entrants taking part in the opening cavalcade through Fort William’s town centre.
Each day of the trial sees competitors take on the might of the hard Scottish terrain interspersed with the challenges presented by 30 different observed sections. On Monday 7th May, crowds will amass at 7.30am in the West End Car Park to watch the first riders leave on the start of their six-day adventure.
The SSDT is free for spectators to watch on all days. The official event programme, containing details of riders, routes and spectating opportunities, is available to purchase in the Fort William area and also via www.ssdt.org. Route maps for each day of the main trial can also be viewed on the website.
