Motor minds wanted

HELP is being sought to rev up interest in motorsport among the younger generation in the region.

Hawick’s Alan Johnstone is organising an event aimed at high school pupils which will cover all aspects of motor sport, but he needs people with knowledge of karting, motorcycle racing and motocross to volunteer their services early next year.

The event will be in the form of a how to get started in motorsport evening and Alan has already had a great response from all the local high schools.

Anyone who can help out should contact Alan on 01450 377472 or email him at
