BSRA Championship winners | NEWS
Riding thousands of miles on scooters is what many of us have done for decades but doing it for a championship makes it slightly more of a challenge and can give you more of an incentive to get those miles in…
Taking part in a championship means competitors are more likely to go to events they’d otherwise possibly skip. With the BSRA Championship in particular, you’ll usually find competitors are going there primarily to enjoy themselves, rather than just signing on and riding home again. Just as a supporting members championship should be, supporting the event itself.
British Scooter Riders Association championship controllers, Rick and Ann round up the 2016 results for us.

2016 BSRA Championship results
Another year of rallying and partying comes to an end. It was a close run thing with only 20 miles between the best supporting female and the runner-up. Not so in the male category as we had Tooly from Coyotes SC travelling from Aberdeen and winning by a wide margin on mileage. The results are as follows:
- Best supporting male: Richard “Tooly” Cowe
- Runner-up: Mark Swinge
- Best supporting female: Vicki Swinge
- Runner up: Karen Soulsby
- Best Supporting Club: London Lambretta Club
We also had a category for best supporting couple, which went to
- Daz & Jo Turner (Mansfield Monsters SC)
And last but not least…
- Best Supporting Student: Won by Evo
To be honest we didn’t know how to categorise that one but wanted to highlight somehow that mature bearded student, Evo rode to all of the National Rallies on the GTV he bought from Johnnie B. Those of you who know John will appreciate the significance of this.
How many miles does it take to be a winner?
Male winner travelled 6346 miles
Female 4157 miles
