Covid-19

March 2020:

Due to the worldwide pandemic caused by Covid-19, the Inverness & District Motor Cycle Club Ltd has suspended all events, activities and meetings until further notice.

Please also note that the SACU offices are also closed at this time. All motorcycle events are suspended until at least 31st May 2020 or further notice.

Notification of start-up will be given on this website, the club official facebook page and e-mails to current club members for the 2020 season.

Coronavirus (covid-19)

Due to the current state of affairs in the UK and Scotland, the Scottish ACU, our governing body, has taken the very difficult decision this morning, 16th March 2020, to cancel all motorcycle events until at least the 31st May 2020.
This means that no events promoted by the Inverness & Dusrtrict MCC Ltd will take place during that period, this includes: Open To Scotland, National, Club Trials, Practice or Training Days, as we do not have valid insurance permits during this period.
Please note:
We would strongly advise that during this period that you DO NOT private practice on any land that the IDMCC normally use for events, as you do not have any liability insurance cover through the Inverness & District MCC or Scottish ACU.By doing so, you may be putting the landowner at risk if you were to have, or to cause, an accident with a motorcycle on their property.The Directors and Committee of the Inverness & District Motor Cycle Club Ltd will not be held responsible or liable under any circumstances if a member is injured or causes injury to third parties during private practice sessions.

The full statement by the SACU is detailed below:
“SACU Statement to Members – Coronavirus-19The Board of Directors have made the very hard decision to cancel all SACU permitted events till 31 May 2020. We will assess the situation after this date.This has not been an easy decision for the board, but considering the situation with the spread of the virus we believe this is the best way to proceed in the interest of our members and their families to ensure their wellbeing.We will make every effort to ensure scope for any Scottish Championship events to find other dates in the calendar.I hope you all can understand this decision, and that it is our responsibility to ensure the safety of all involved in Motorcycle Sport. – Sandy Mack MBE., Chairman-SACU”

SportsInsure launch insurance portal

The Scottish ACU arranges event insurance through SportsInsure, an Aon company who specialise in motorsport insurance cover.

Inverness & District are a responsible club who promote motorcycle trials events in as safe a manner as is possible. However we cannot do this without the backing of insurance cover.

SportsInsure have just launched an online portal where you can gain important information about the cover that is afforded at any trials event that IDMCC organise and promote.

Have a look at the new portal, it has your interest at heart as well as our landowners, committee and directors.

HC2DT 2020 – Information on Entries

Highland Classic Two Day Trial 2020 – The Fantic Edition: ~

Entries will open on Saturday 1st February 2020 and are limited to 160 entrants. Entry Form and Regulations will be available as a pdf download from the IDMCC website on the Highland Classic page and on facebook.

Since 2014 we have usually been oversubscribed and we run the entry system on a First Come, First Entered basis, no ballot.


We also have a reserve entry list made up of those entries recieved when the allocation has been filled and we find that between 10-15% usually drop their entry before the event due to circumstances outwith the entrants control.


There will be a box in the entry form to tick to let us know that an entrant wishes to be on the reserve list if their entry  has been received after the allocation is full.
