Reigning British Quad Champion Paul Holmes is to crown this season’s Scottish Champions at the SACU 2017 awards ceremony on Saturday the 13th of January at the Double Tree Hilton Edinburgh Queensferry Crossing Hotel.

The governing body of the sport in Scotland, the SACU, has joined forces with Quad Racing Scotland to host the dinner and awards presentation.

Not only will Holmes present the worthy winners with their awards, but there will also be a Q&A session where Holmes will be asked to share the tricks of his trade with an audience of quading enthusiasts aged six to sixty plus.

This year saw new and familiar faces competing in both QRS and the prestigious National Series, and their names will be added to the silverware below a venerable group of previous winners, including John Mitchell, Leon Beda and Murray Graham.

Confirming that Paul Holmes is to present the awards, Frank Tipping, QRS Chairman said: “We’re delighted that Paul is going to be able to join us for this event. Over the years our Scottish Champions have gone on to race successfully at British and International level, and we hope that hearing Paul’s experiences will inspire the current crop in the youth classes to do likewise.”
