The SACU have created a long term strategic plan in alignment with our vision, mission and core values.

The Scottish Auto Cycle Union (SACU) is the National Governing Body for motorcycle sport in Scotland. The SACU develops and promotes a number of motorcycle disciplines including:

  • Road Race (inclusive of Sidecars)
  • Trials
  • Off Road Speed (Motocross, Enduro, Quads and Supermoto)
  • Bike Trials (non-motorised)

Formed in 1913, the SACU now has over 40 affiliated clubs which organise in excess of 180 events each year for all ages and abilities across 94 permitted venues; some of which are Forestry and Land Scotland partnerships. The SACU issues competition licences, event insurance and also provides training for officials and coaches. Each sporting discipline has its own committee, elected by the clubs, to help promote and develop their sport


To be an inclusive, modern and sustainable NGB with our clubs and members at the centre of the sports’ development.


To be accessible to all demographics and socioeconomic backgrounds by working with clubs and key partners to reduce real and perceived participation barriers. We will offer opportunities which are safe and enjoyable leading to lifelong, fulfilling experiences and success in motorcycle sport.

Core Values

At the SACU, we believe it is important that we have a clear set of values which we live and abide by to help create an open, transparent and welcoming environment where everyone can feel part of a safe community. Our core values are as follows:


We will provide a framework for safe, respectful clubs and communities where everyone is welcome to participate in motorsport at any level


We will provide practice and competitive opportunities for athletes from grassroots and entry level through to elite sport


We will continue to create and nurture strong, meaningful partnerships with local authorities, educational establishments, emergency services, the third sector and Scottish Government


We will value our people, develop our volunteers and empower future leaders within the sport


We will create strong foundations and maintain a growth mind-set across all areas of motorsport
