1st MOTOFEST 2017
Live music, bike competitions, team building, parade, shows, 24H bonfire.
Our main intention is to promote a positive view of motorcyclists and motorcycling in general. During three days of events there will be plenty of fun activities, shows, good live music and competitions as well as trade stalls and demonstrations.
Place: Coupar Angus Motocross Track
The track is easy to find, approx. 2 miles out of Coupar Angus, just off the A94 on the Forfar road, look out for the small white sign for 'Aberbothrie' and we are the first gate entrance just a few yards down on the right hand side. You can use the postcode - PH12 8QY - as a rough guide but this does not take you exactly to the track!

£1 from every sold ticket goes to the Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulans.
The Air Ambulance service (SCAA) is able to reach 90% of Scotland’s population within 25 minutes. This includes remote and rural areas which are difficult to access by road. It is proven to be a life-saving service, but in order to sustain it delivering care to those in desperate need, when speed and urgent medical attention are critical factors in their chance of survival, it needs our support.

During the International Bike Rally 1st MOTOFEST 2017 we aim to gather teddy bears, which will be donated to support project ”Million Teddies for Wojtek”. We want to make sure that every child has a teddy, so when you come to our Motofest take along your teddy to donate. The idea behind the project is that we belive this way of helping creates joy and excitement for children more than monetary donation. All teddies will go to children in need. That includes hospitals across UK, Europe and refugee agencies.
