Tim Scarrott is a local motorcycle enthusiast with over 20 years of riding experience. Tim’s love of motorcycles began at the age of 1, when Tim’s dad Nelson would take him for dirt bike rides on his Bultaco, until Tim was old enough to ride by himself. Tim’s family belonged to the TrailBike Sportsman Association, camping and riding dirt bikes throughout California at places such as Georgetown, Middletown, Fout Springs, Hollister Hills, Prairie City and Carnegie just to name a few. Tim began competing in the TrailBike Sportsman Association’s “Junior Trials”, his first experiences in motorcycle competition. Tim often won his class and also won several “overall” awards. Tim raced motocross in high school, competing at several tracks in northern California and raced the amateur division at the Cow Palace Supercross when he was 15. Tim began to focus on motocross but suffered a broken back while practicing for a motocross race, sidelining his racing career. Tim’s doctor gave strict orders to stay away from motorcycles; Tim recovered and returned to trail riding for several years throughout northern California.

 

He stopped riding motorcycles at the age of 22 to focus on military service and a career in law enforcement. Tim served 12 years at the Oakland Police Department, leaving police work in 2012. He worked a variety of assignments including patrol, investigations and the Special Victims Unit. Tim served 6 years in the California National Guard, 1-184 Infantry Regiment, “Nightstalker” Battalion. Tim served a combat tour in Iraq, participated in over 200 combat missions, earning a Combat Infantry BadgeValorous Unit Award and other awards and recognitions.

 

Tim returned home Iraq and bought a 2005 Yamaha R1 from a fellow Army veteran. Tim completed a California Motorcycle Foundation Safety Course and receiving his M1 certificate. Tim enjoyed riding his street bike throughout the bay area and northern California, logging nearly 10,000 miles in his first 6 months on the motorcycle. He began participating in track day events with Pacific Track Time and discovered an atmosphere of motorcycle enthusiasts much like his early years at the TrailBike Sportsman Association. Tim attended as many track days as possible, meeting Michael Earnest and a number of talented local and national level racers. Tim’s love of competition was renewed and brought him to the American Federation of Motorcyclists in 2008. Tim won his first “Clubsman” race and immediately began competing in the expert class as a novice, winning a number of “Top Novice” awards before earning his expert racing license.

Tim has competed in endurance racing events, winning the 3 round inaugural “Tag Team Challenge” in 2010 and was a finalist for the American Federation of Motorcyclist’s “Rider of the Year” award in 2012 when Tim risked his personal safety to come to the aid of a crashed racer.
