Jimmy Young – Take 2

Scots photographer Jimmy Young and John Moffat (Trials Guru) have been friends for well over forty years, but only recently Jim has unearthed even more of his treasure trove of trials and other photographs!

Jimmy was very busy in the period 1977-1981 taking images for Trials & Motocross News and covered the Scottish Trials scene with the then reporters Tommy Sandham and David Murie.

It gives Trials Guru great pleasure in sharing more of Jim’s photos with readers of Guru – now on Jimmy Young – Take 2!

Note: As always, please be considerate, the photographs are the legal property of Jimmy Young and should not be displayed on social media or any other website without permission and accompanied by the wording: ‘Copyright: Jimmy Young, Armadale’. Without this addition, any images broadcast or displayed are in breach of Jimmy Young’s copyright.
