2017 Grampian Motorcycle Convention cancelled

From:

Friends of the museum will have heard by now that there was a serious incident involving an individual track hire test session on Wednesday 23rd August where unfortunately the driver was killed. As a result the police and environmental health are investigating the cause.

All our thoughts are with the family and friends of the deceased.

For the immediate future we will not use the road circuit. This will mean that the AllFord event and the Grampian Motorcycle Convention will not be staged this year.

As a mark of respect towards the gentleman’s family and friends the museum is closed today but will reopen at 10am on Friday 25th August.

This news is sad but very true I'm afraid. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the deceased driver.
