Summer Scrum Scooter rally leaves Driffield buzzing

Scooter enthusiasts from across the country gathered in Driffield at the weekend for the sixth annual Summer Scrum organised by the Driffield Midnight Runners Scooter Club.

The rally, held at Driffield Rugby Club at Kelleythorpe, attracted hundreds of visitors who enjoyed the good weather and the summer sounds of Northern Soul and SKA music, which rang out across the weekend.

Friday night saw local band Capital Eye take to the stage, supported by top northern soul DJ Dave Halcrow from Hartlepool, while SKA music was provided by Driffield’s own Rob Flake. A scooter run took place on Saturday, with Craig Ellis taking lead rider, which took in Driffield and surrounding villages and finished at the Bluebell at Riverhead.

A custom show saw some fine examples of scooters on display with Driffield’s Archie Moore riding off with the Rich Cousins award for best in show for his Route 66 themed Lambretta.

Entertainment continued to be provided with John Denford’s mix of soul and Motown classics getting the crowd up on their feet.

Saturday night music was provided by the 01482tones from Hull. A raffle was also held in aid of the Driffield Old Folks tea.

Planning for next year’s rally is already underway, which will coincide with the Midnight Runners 40th anniversary.

Organisers thanked all those who attended the rally, the Driffield Rugby Club for the use of their facilities and local business which supported the raffle, as well as Dave Rugg and Flash Foster and all the club members for preparing the event.
