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.
