About The Scottish Six Days Trial

All you need to do to enter the SSDT is submit your entry form when entries open. Traditionally that happens on 1st October – entry forms are available online on the SSDT website or by sending a stamped addressed envelope to the SSDT Secretary. Details are published both online and in the motorcycling press at the time.
Sounds simple, doesn't it! Unfortunately completing the entry form very rarely guarantees you an entry in the SSDT. There are 270 places available every year, but on average we get between 450-500 entries for the trial, so for every entry accepted there's one turned down. That's the first rule of entering the SSDT – don't fill in the form expecting to get an entry. If you prepare yourself for missing out then you can only be pleasantly surprised when you get in! The riders who get in are determined by ballot.
Start of October : Entries open on the SSDT website
