THE motorcycle charity which gives young people the chance to learn how to safely enjoy riding a motorbike has vowed to come back strongly after a horrible attack of vandalism on their home outside Ballingry.

Kingdom Off Road Motorcycle Club's track is in a field between Ballingry and Portmoak and last week their storage huts were set on fire and destroyed along with some important equipment used by them in their weekly sessions.

David Paton, who has been someone who has worked hard in recent years, to develop the club which works with young people to help avoid the illegal use of motorbikes and quadbikes, said that while it is a bad blow, everyone in the set-up is committed to getting things back to normal as soon as possible.

He also hoped that the local community would help them achieve this.

Said David: "The huts at our motocross track was burned down by unknown person or persons for unknown reasons.

"A number of our track maintenance assets were in the hut at the time and were also destroyed in the fire. This incident has been reported to the Police and their investigation is ongoing.

"This will not stop our activities. Rest assured we are determined to move past this incident and will do everything in our power to ensure that all of our services and programmes continue without any disruption".

Added David: "We will shortly be announcing some new funding requests and hope that the community can band together to support our Charity redevelop the facility at the track in the near future.

"We appreciate everyone's patience as we deal with the loss of some assets, and whilst it may be an inconvenience it will not stop us from moving forward. As Benjamin Franklin is reported to have said, ‘out of adversity comes opportunity.’"

KORMC's aim is to make local communities safer by providing a safe, controlled environment, for people to use off-road motorcycles.
