Round two of the 2022 Scottish Twin Shock championship is to be held at Kilmartin’s famous Carnasserie Castle track on Sunday May 1.

Used for the first time in decades, the track hosted round five of the 2019 Scottish Twin Shock championship, proving to be a true test of riders’ skill and endurance.

The track is fondly remembered as the venue for the only Scottish round of the GP World Motocross Championship in June 1978.

This weekend, look out for various racing classes including pre-77, four-stroke, 250cc twinshock class (pre-83), open twinshocks (pre-83), evolution class (pre-89) two-strokes and modern.

Sign-on for competitors on May 1 is from 8am and racing starts at 10.30am.
