Carole Nash Motorcycle Live is Star Struck

UK Motorcycle Show

The Carole Nash Motorcycle Live is proving a big attraction to some of the biggest names in motorcycling.

Not only have over 30 major motorcycle manufacturers signed up, but MotoGP World Championship Jorge Lorenzo has now been confirmed to open the nine-day motorcycle event.

From the World Superbike Championship, Sylvan Guintoli (Suzuki), Troy Corser (BMW) and Leon Haslam (Suzuki) are all set to make appearances along with soon-to-be MotoGP rider Cal Crutchlow (Yamaha).

Scott Redding will represent Moto2 while Bradley Smith and Danny Webb will fly the flag for the 125 GP Motorcycle World Championship.

British Superbike stars Eugene Laverty, Tommy Hill and Michael Rutter will all be there to meet and greet fans and the Isle of Man TT racers will also be out in force, with Ian Hutchinson (This year’s 5-time TT winner!), Guy Martin and John McGuiness all set to appear.

It has been confirmed that MotoGP LCR Honda rider Randy de Puniet and Rizla Suzuki’s Alvaro Bautista will also appear at the motorcycle event.

Randy de Puniet will make a two-day visit courtesy of REV’IT. The Frenchman MotoGP rider will attend on Saturday and Sunday (November 27-28) and will take part in signing sessions on the REV’IT stand, giving MotoGP fans the chance to quiz him on the events of the 2010 motorcycle racing season.

Spaniard Alvaro Bautista will arrive on Tuesday (November 30) as a guest of Suzuki and will be conducting a signing session on the motorcycle manufacturer’s stand.

Some riders will also take part in a Question of Bikes with Steve Parrish as well as getting involved in James Whitham’s MotoGP clinic, giving a fascinating insight into the highs and lows of life as a professional Superbike racer.

Parrish and Whitham’s features will take place daily on the Black Horse Stage in the all-new Arai Entertainment Zone, where motorcyclists will be kept amused with back-to-back quiz shows, competitions, motorcycle rider chats and much more, all day, every day.

A whole host of star guests and celebrity motorcyclists will be stopping by and visitors will have the chance to scoop some very special prizes.

On the final Sunday December 5, the Black Horse Stage will host the Riders for Health Champions’ Auction.

Memorabilia signed by the motorcycle racing champions (both MotoGP and Superbike) of the past and present will be up for grabs – all in aid of a very worthy cause.

Carole Nash Motorcycle Live runs from November 27 to December 5, 2010. Tickets are £15 ($22 USD) in advance for adults, £10 ($15 USD) for Seniors, £5 ($7.50 USD) for children aged 11-16 – kids under 10 go free. Go to for more details.
