ABOUT HIGHLAND ENDURO CLUB

Everyone wants to be #1… but we really are! Highland Enduro Club is the best Endurance Motorcycling Club in the Highlands. How do we know? Because we say so! And if we’re that passionate about our club's drive, skill, passion and sportsmanship, then nothing else matters (except, of course, your support).

Affiliated to the SACU, the controlling body for motorcycle sport in Scotland, our aim is to organise and run, off-road motorcycling events in the North of Scotland specifically Enduro's and Hare and Hound championship events, with the possibility of Training days and fun scrambles in the future.

 

JOHN LITTLE MEMORIAL ENDURO

The John Little Memorial Enduro due to be held at Lossie on the 3rd & 4th April is now scheduled to take place on the 1st & 2nd May subject to an announcement due to be made by the Scottish Government on the 20th April.  Please see the statement from the Club Chairman Jim Mair.

Following intensive discussions with SACU and FLS Highland Enduro Club Ltd are sufficiently confident with the likely hood of COVID restrictions being relaxed, that we intend to run the 2 day John Little Memorial Enduro on the 1st and 2nd of May these events will be rounds 1 and 2 of the 2021 Scottish Enduro Championsip.

It is accepted that only if the Scottish Government make a retrograde announcement between now and then will the event be jeopardised, but as long as things progress at the rate planned we should have a cracking event all be it COVID restrictions will be applied to the letter.

Regs will be posted within the next few days, and the club are in negotiations with local land owners to allow nearby overnight parking at a small cost.

Please try and support this event as much work has gone into planning it when it would have been far easier for us to let it slip, and in particular thanks to the local FLS staff Neil Theodoreson, Shabaz at SACU, Bill McGregor, Caroline Thomson and Moray Council.

Lets get back to riding and enjoying ourselves.

LOSSIE ENDURO

3rd & 4th April 2021

Fellow Competitors/Enthusiasts,
I am Jim Mair Chairman of the Highland Enduro Club Ltd. and I thought it would be a good idea to bring you up to speed with our plans for Rounds 1 and 2 of the Scottish Enduro Championships due to be run on the 3rd and 4th of April 2021. This event will be called the John Little Memorial Enduro and a new and grand trophy will be awarded to the overall winner of the two days. The winner will be in a different class each year and the idea is to give everyone a chance to win it over time. This year the winner will be from the Expert class.
We have been issued with an SACU permit and applied to FLS for permission to run the event. Until we can identify the exact route the permission will not be granted but we have been given the go ahead to enter the forest at controlled times to recce a route, and work has begun on this.
We have to adhere to Covid restrictions and this means progress is slower than we would like so the route might not be as adventurous as we would have liked. Our wish is that government restrictions revert to those in place when we successfully ran the H&H at Tain in the autumn.
In the event of the restrictions making it impossible to run the event in April we will endeavour to run it in May or June, but we are hoping and planning for the Easter weekend. We were going to try and convince FLS to allow camping but we have decided that it would not be prudent this year as trying to control Covid regulations at night would not be something the club could be held responsible for.
If things change we will issue an update but currently this is where we are.
These are the thoughts of Chairman Mair.

SCOTTISH CHAMPIONSHIP HARE AND HOUND

Tain 25th October 2020

THE LONG WAIT IS OVER

By now our fledgling club should have hosted 3 Enduros and 2 Hare and Hound events in the 2020 Scottish Championship, but with all the current craziness in the world at this time the Enduro season has been cancelled without a single event taking place and the Hare and Hound Championship will only have a few rounds starting on 10th October at the excellent Tyningham venue being run by Ecosse XC, so we at the Club feel priviledged to be able to host one of the few events on the 25th October at Tain MX track.
