CLEE Hill Victor Motorcycle Club celebrates 50 years of organising motorcycle scrambles.

The club formed in 1966 when Ken Myles, Bob Hughes, Phil Bright, Roy Rogers, Harry Skidmore, Brian Pearce and Horace Bodenham wanted to race in local scrambles and decided to call the club Clee Hill Victors.

The first event took place at Rock Hill Farm Greete near Ludlow on Sunday, June 4 1967.

To celebrate the occasion, the club held a reunion at Rock Hill Farm and anybody involved with the club during its 50 years of organising events was invited to come along and meet old friends and have a chat over light refreshments and a walk around the old course.

The course at Rock Hill Farm saw some exciting racing in the late 60s and early 70s and was a popular venue with riders and spectators alike.

International events, with teams from across Europe, competed for the West European Championship and were memorable for the large crowds lining the hillside to watch the battle of the nations and support local riders taking part.

There was even a bus service from Ludlow to bring spectators to the event such was the popularity of the venue.

Over its 50-year history, the club has provided many riders with the opportunity to compete at club, national and international events and a few of the riders who competed in 1967 still ride to this day.

The club will also be holding a 50th anniversary motocross event at Cleeton St Mary on Sunday, September 10 and hope to run a class for previous club members over the past five decades on either modern or classic bikes.
