The 33rd Grampian Motorcycle Convention took place at the Grampian Transport Museum, Alford, on Sunday 6 September with 5259 ‘delegates’ attending.

Visitors to the event , which made up the second biggest attendance in the convention’s history, enjoyed a day of fantastic entertainment and action.

This year the organisers were delighted to welcome 4 times world Superbike champion and King of the Jungle Carl Fogarty as the Convention’s star guest.

Carl proved to be a real hit with the public and was happy to pose for selfies and sign autographs.

Inside the arena there was entertainment, with the On the Edge stunt team, providing demonstrations which combined trails riding, motocross and precision riding.

The pursuit and Supermoto races proved as popular as ever, demonstrating speedway style riding skills in front of a packed grandstand.

Visitors with a driving license were able to take part in the action, with a free 15 minute session on the ‘Try Trails’ which proved very popular.

The finale of the event came in the form of the Moped Mayhem and with 49 teams signed up, organisers found themselves turning away late entries.

The Grampian Motorcycle Convention is run by the Bon Accord Motorcycle Club and is a regular fixture in the museum’s busy outdoor programme.

The 34th annual Convention at Grampian transport Museum is scheduled to be held next year on Sunday 4 September 2016.
