duffus charged with riding while disqualified

Motorcycle dealer and former TT racer Alan Duffus of Kirkcaldy has denied riding a motorcycle in a public place while disqualified and without insurance.

The case is unusual because the incident that gave rise to the alleged offences took place within the confines of Knockhill race circuit near Dunfermline, home to the Scottish round of BSB.

Duffus had pleaded not guilty to the charges – under sections 103 and 143 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 – by letter at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on 19 September, 2014. He appeared at the court on Thursday, 16 April for an Intermediate Diet to iron out any issues that might delay the trial, set for 5 May.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Police in Fife received a report of road traffic offences in the Dunfermline area on 29 June, 2014. A 68-year-old man was arrested and charged and appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court on Thursday 16 April, 2015.”

Alan Duffus owns Duffus Motorcycles of St Clair Street, Kirkcaldy, which its website describes as Scotland’s “only Exclusive Premier Yamaha dealer”.
