Road racing’s great races – Scarborough gold cup 2005


The first time I really took an avid interest in road racing was after the

2005 Scarborough gold cup which saw Guy Martin retain the Scarborough gold

cup for the third year in a row. Guy took victory on the Uel Duncan racing

Suzuki GSXR 1000 superbike in front of Ian Hutchinson who took second place

on his Honda CBR 1000 superstock bike. This was the first time I took close

notice of Hutchy when racing and it was at the 2005 scarborough gold cup that

I realised his talent on roads circuits and that potentially he could be

a future gold cup winner but also a future multiple Isle of Man TT winner.

Ian Lougher took third place on the DMRR Honda Fireblade superbike whilst

taking fourth place was John Mcguinness on the Vitrans Honda superbike. Fifth

place went to Jason Griffths on the Yamaha R1 superbike in a race that showed

we had some new road racing superstars and ones that would give us many a exciting race.
