Scorpa 2018 SSDT

Nigel Birkett – Team Manager Scorpa UK

As ever the Edinburgh and District MCC Ltd pulled together to put on what has to be the best trial in the world! Congrats to all involved on another successful year!

And the week up in Scotland would be a great success for the Birkett Scorpa UK team. Scorpa factory ‘A’ team of Gary MacDonald, Tom Minta and Andy Chilton would secure the best manufacturers team award! Winning the manufactures team award is a massive achievement for Birkett Motorsport and something the whole team are very proud.

Across the board the whole team would have a great week. Monday saw Gary, Tom and Andy go clean and have the pleasure of riding with yellow leader boards going into Tuesday. The trio would carry on there good start and complete the week in good shape.

Young Jess Bown would finish her 3rd ssdt with a smile on her face and some very solid rides throughout the week. Jess was over the moon to conquer ‘Trotters Burn’ on Tuesday.

Craig Houston would have a Stella week and finish with a personal best over all result. Team boss Nigel Birkett would achieve yet another SSDT finish. There’s life and talent in the old boy yet.

Gary would end the week in a fantastic 3rd place on the podium. Gary takes the SSDT very seriously and rides with high Scottish pride so he’ll be more then happy with another podium finish.
