An impressive 17 quads lined up for the opening round of the Ecosse XC Winter Series at Dunbar on the south-east coast of Scotland. The crowd was buzzing to see not one, but four Scottish National champions on the start grid.

Multi-Scottish, British and European champ John Mitchell dusted off his race boots for the first since the beginning of the year, whilst five-time Scottish champ Leon Beda was re-entering the competitive arena for the first time since Pont de Vaux in 2016. These two ‘grand masters’ of the quad racing scene were joined by yet-to-be-crowned 2017 Scottish Nationals victor Michael Brewis together with reigning champ, a four-time holder of the title, Murray Graham.

The deep sandy track at Dunbar was quick to rut up and the quad racers had to work hard to find good lines and places to pass but, find them they did. The racing was fast and hard all day long, with a few surprises thrown in along the way.
