Scottish champ Campbell heading south in 2019

In Melville, News, NG Road Racing, Scottish Championship, Thundersport GB

SCOTTISH and KMSC Lightweight champion Scott Campbell has revealed plans to race south of the border next season.

The former roads racer has been racing in the Scottish, KMSC and Melville championships since calling time on roads, thanks to the proximity of the clubs to his home in the wilds of Northumberland.

But with two titles now under his belt, Campbell has decided it’s time to pit himself against England’s fastest lightweights next year.

Campbell clinched both the Scottish and KMSC Lightweight titles in 2018…

“I’ve had a great couple of years racing in Scotland since I’ve come off the roads, and getting the Scottish and KMSC titles this year meant the world to me,” he said.

“However, I think I need a change now. I’m after a new challenge and I’d like to race at some different circuits. It’ll be a good chance to see how I can go up against a whole new bunch of riders and bikes.”

Campbell has decided to enter a number of NG Road Racing rounds across the season and is also planning to dabble in a bit of Thundersport GB action.

“This year was quite intense concentrating on the championships, so I’ve decided I don’t want to commit to a full season anywhere next year and will just concentrate on having fun with it.

“I’m going to do some NG rounds and am looking at Thundersport as well. I raced with Thundersport back in 2011 and I’m keen to see what has changed and where I pitch in.

“I’ve ridden all of the tracks before but it’s been a while so it’s going to be nice to get back out there and learn them all again.

“I’m not tying myself to any championship so I can use the year to learn more about where I fit in and if I can run well then who knows where we’ll end up the year after.”
