“Cookstown & District Motocross club are delighted that a round of the ScotMX Championship will come to our track at Desertmartin later this year. 2020 was a dismal year for our sport here and having this to look forward to in 2021 gives Motocross in Northern Ireland something to look forward to. There are a large number of riders from here who support this championship and this will give them a chance to race on home ground . Thank you to Stuart Flockhart and his team in choosing Desertmartin as a venue and we look forward in working with you all. ” – Billy McKeown track director .
The championship will see a rider’s best five rounds count for the series.
ScotMX Chairman Stuart Flockhart adds: “We have 6 great tracks booked for 2021 and I think we’re going to be in for another great year, possibly even bigger than it was last year! Our riders stand a better chance of gaining their highest score by doing all of our 6 rounds of the series this year , however with the option of ‘the dropper’ , this means competitors won’t be punished if they can’t make it to one of them . We can’t wait to get going again and will be opening up the website for our 2021 Championship registration next week . “
