Bill Simpson and son Ian will be at Lanark

Track heroes Bill and Ian Simpson and the third round of the Scottish Supermoto Championship will top a bill brimming with the finest two-wheeled entertainment around this weekend...

The Carole Nash Great Scottish Bike Show takes place at Lanark Agricultural Centre, Hyndford Road, Lanark this weekend, May 11-12.

High-powered sports bikes will be burning rubber in the hands of the Vertical Trix stunt team, classic motorcycles will defy gravity on the infamous Wall of Death and extreme mountain biker Danny Butler will demonstrate his breathtaking skill and precision pedalling.

Show-goers can pull wheelies in safety with the Extreme Wheelie machine and children can enjoy an inflatable mini quad bike track. Brian Marr will give a trials demonstration and there will be a classic scrambles demo on a dedicated track. A huge selection of trade stands will offer everything from parts and accessories to complete bikes and there will be both private motorcycle exhibitors and club stands.

Father and son VIP guests Bill and Ian Simpson are both Isle of Man TT winners and Ian scored a long list of victories in Grand Prix and road races. Both will be talking about their careers and Bill’s Suzuki GS1000 and 250 Armstrong Rotax will be on display.

The supermoto machines, which race on a track made up of both dirt and tarmac sections, will be in action on the Saturday before the full race takes place on the Sunday.

Classic Bike Shows organiser Nick Mowbray said: “We’ve gone all out to make Lanark an action packed experience that combines stunning live shows and demonstrations with hands-on interactive attractions and row after row of gorgeous mouth-watering motorcycles for a truly classic event.

“I am proud that Bill and Ian Simpson have agreed to be interviewed about their racing achievements at our show and I’m looking forward to hearing some of their incredible stories from the cutting edge of motorsport.

“Lanark has so much for enthusiasts to enjoy but even if you’re only a casual visitor, who’s perhaps come along to see what all the fuss is about, we’ve got performers here who’ll blow you away with their sheer feats of skill and showmanship."
