Win a pair of tickets to this year’s MCN motorcycle show

The Carole Nash MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show, is back with a host of all-new attractions serving up a great day out for all the family.

Held March 12-13 at Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston, there will be top-class live action as well as displays of the latest bikes and treasured classics, something for everyone who loves motorcycles.

Alongside a superb display from bike manufacturers including Triumph, Ducati, BMW, Suzuki, Victory, Kawasaki, Honda, Yamaha and Harley Davidson – who will be showcasing their latest models – there’s plenty of real two-wheeled action. Will you be able to stand the pace?

Expect plenty of performance with the first round of the Scottish Supermoto Championship, where dirt track and tarmac meet in a heady mix of high-octane action. Saturday will see qualifying and three races for the S3 (up to 250cc) class, plus qualifying and three races for the open (any size) class. Sunday features qualifying and three races for the S1 (250-400cc) and S2 450cc upwards) classes, the first event in the year’s seven-round series.

Around 40 competitors are taking part and Scottish rider Dougie Cunningham, currently S1, S3 and overall champion, is said to be ‘untouchable’ on the half-mile course.

S2 Champion Jeff Malcolm will be looking to defend his crown. There will also be thrills-a-minute with stunt bikes, including the Kevin Carmichael and Broke FMX stunt shows in the Live Action Zones, while for traditional old-school thrills Ken Fox is back with his world-famous Wall of Death. For lovers of older motorcycles the Carole Nash Classics Pavilion will turn back the clock and celebrity spotters are in for a treat with plenty of biking guests in attendance, including eight times World Champion Phil Read MBE.

Show-goers can bag a biking bargain in the new bike jumble and retail village where a host of traders will be able to fit you out with new leathers, boots or helmets. If you want to improve your bike’s appearance there’s a wide array of suppliers to help make your wheels stand out from the crowd.

Children under 15 go free and there’s lots to keep them occupied, including a fun fair, extreme rides and inflatables.

With all of this and more, there’s no doubt the Carole Nash MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show is THE place to be for all things bike!
