The British Scooter Sport Organisation
racing has evolved from very innocent Reliability Trials held
by the Lambretta and Vespa Clubs back in the early 60’s
to the high speed racing of the 21st century. Racing for scooters
was deadly serious and in the early 70’s it arrived.
Over the following years scooter racing evolved into a serious
sport and produced many fine young sports men and ladies.

(ACU). The ACU is the appointed body to run two wheeled motorised
