New Sacu Licence Fee

Recommended Posts

 

£50 still sounds prohibatively expensive, we struggle to get people down here to pay £10 and i thought Scots were supposed to be tight LOL, to me but i'm glad an agreeable compromise has been sorted out. A triumph for democracy.

Just shows you the reaction you get when you try to get a couple of quid off a trials rider :)

So we think 'no change' is a result?

No wonder trials in scotland is in the state it is.

Mark, how would a £150 a year (or more) license improve trials ?

If the money was put back into develpment and promotion it would.

I'm not saying that the SACU of old would be able to deliver that, but if they change into a body that truly fosters and encourages motorcycle sport they could.

But if they dont get the chance we will never know.

What will change ? The Alberfeldy & Loch Lomond of old will not re-appear.

Trials in Scotland have not changed much in the last 30 years, faces have dis-appeared, then re-surfaced. (except Big Phil)

What is the dream I should buy into ?

Overthehill has made some very valid points there.

Many other sports are now investing for the future. There is a bigger picture with Scottish Trial sport, it's just a pity some people don't really see it.

The "comp levy" could be optional, those with "vision" could contribute.
