SACU Millenium Event Enduro
Knockhill Fife 1st July 2000

An exciting start to the SACU Millenium Event the Enduro Riiders were flagged off by Mr Robert Young following an opening address by Mr Archie Shedden one of the SACU Directors. The riders started the race witha quick "parade lap" of the Knockhill tarmac. With riders on knobbly tires and low pressures the laps were a bit hairy but at least all the riders managed to get to the infield in one piece. One rider managing a wheelie for most of the main straight - saving wear on the front of course.
There followed three hours of hectic racing with almost no respite on the tight and oft dusty Knockhill infield. Racing was close as the reults show. Derek Little emerging triumphant in the Experts by only one lap. Gary Emsley winning the Clubman class by two minutes from the second place Dave Denton.
A few new faces were seen at the race along with some not seen recently. Campbell Chatham (a blast from the past) raced an immaculate WR400 but suffered a bit from starting problems. Graham Muir on a quick visit from Switzerland was going well until a rear wheel puncture forced an early exit. Andy Flockhart suffered a front puncture but quick work soon had him back out with only a couple of laps lost. Brian Hamilton from Glasgow sounded great on his KLX 300 but starting problems in the bog pushed him down the field. Alasdair McGowan made a welcome return and managed 4th in the experts - hopefully we may see him out again soon.

A big thank you to all the organisers and particularly to Caroline and Atholl for their work at the start and for manning the stamp check throughout the day. A mention must also go to Dougie Meek for his efforts and for the use of his quad   - no quad - no race. Ta Dougie.
