World Trials Legend Douglie Lampkin Returns as part of the Classic Motorbike Showcase at NEC Classic
Dougie, who amassed twelve individual world titles over the years, will be looking to ‘up the ante’ on last year’s Trial demonstrations. 2022 also featured his son and fellow Trial rider Alfie who came fourth in this year’s FIM World Championship Trial 3 class.
“I had a great time at the show last year and I’m very excited to be coming back, especially to see the motorbike showcase grow,” Dougie enthuses. “One of the highlights for me in 2022 was the Bike Pride of Ownership so I can’t wait to see even more bikes battle it out for the Best in Show trophy in November. Get your entries in now and show me your bike!”
The Bike Pride of Ownership invites private owners to enter their road and racing motorcycles as well as scooters into a competition to find the best bike in show.
Owners will be asked to display their pride and joy for all three of the show days, getting two entry tickets per day and free parking throughout. Those wishing to enter should complete the entry form and return with two pictures of the motorcycle/scooter being entered. The form can be found at https://www.necclassicmotorshow.com/bike-pride.
While all entrants will also be given a commemorative certificate of participation, the top three will receive a certificate and trophy as well as a goody bag.
All the entrants will be judged over the three days by our secret judging panel with Dougie announcing the winner on Sunday afternoon.
The Bike Pride of Ownership will be surrounded by motorcycles and scooter clubs from around the UK including the BSA Bantam Club, Royal Enfield Owners Club, UK Honda Turbo Association and Awfully Pleasant Scooter Association.
Iconic Auctioneers (formally Silverstone Auctions) will also be showcasing the lots featuring in its Motorcycle Sale on Sunday 12th November. These include a multiple show-winning, correct numbers, 1938 Brough Superior SS100 990cc with an estimate of £240,000 - £260,000.
There is also a Bike Autojumble that is a haven of parts and spares for anyone working on their bike along with traders offering a mix of products and services.
The Classic Motorbike Showcase is part of the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with over 3,000 vehicles on display as well as over 350 trade stands from UK and European companies for visitors to enjoy.
