UK World Superbike Riders to Carole Nash

2010 Carole Nash Motorcycle Live

Visitors to Carole Nash Motorcycle Live will get the chance to meet and greet some of the British talent from the 2010 World Superbike Championship.

Leon Haslam, James Toseland and Tom Sykes are all confirmed to appear at the nine-day event, which kicks off on 27 November at The NEC, Birmingham. Fellow SBK stars Broc Parkes, Troy Corser and Sylvain Guintoli will also attend.

Leon Haslam, who finished runner-up in the 2010 World Superbike Championship riding for the Alstare Suzuki Team, will race for the BMW factory team in 2011.

The 27-year-old motorcycle racer will attend the Event for four days, from Thursday Dec. 2 to Sunday Dec. 5, courtesy of Arai. He will meet and greet fans on the Arai motorcycle helmets stand every afternoon.

Twice-World Superbike Champion James Toseland will join Haslam on Sunday, Dec 5. He will take part in the Riders for Health Champions’ Auction, where memorabilia signed by the racing champions of the past and present will be up for grabs – all in aid of a very worthy cause.

Kawasaki riders Tom Sykes and Broc Parkes will both attend on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 November. British star Sykes – or ‘Grinner’ as his fans affectionately call him – and Australian Parkes will head to the Kawasaki stand twice daily to meet and greet fans and sign posters for the waiting crowds.

Sykes has recently been testing the new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R race bike, the road-going version of which will make its UK debut at Carole Nash Motorcycle Live.

The Brits and Broc will be joined by two-time World Superbike Champion and BMW rider Troy Corser, who will attend over the final motorcycle weekend, and French star Sylvain Guintoli, who will come to The NEC on Tuesday Nov. 30.

All riders will take part in a World Superbike Q&A with James Whitham and Question of Bikes with Steve Parrish on the Black Horse Stage in the Arai Entertainment Zone.
