Fans are already looking forward to their next fix of high-octane action after two memorable days at the Great Scottish Bike Show.

The show, hot on the wheels of the Stafford-based  International Classic Motorcycle Show, took place on May the 11th and May the 12th at Lanark, and the culmination of the superb weekend came as Douglas Harvey picked up the Best in Show prize for his 1965 BSA Spitfire, with the award presented by guests of honour Bill and Ian Simpson.
Racing heroes and former Isle of Man TT winners, the Simpson father and son duo gave fans an amazing insight into the world of competitive motorcycling, as well as showcasing their own machines.

Despite overcast conditions, thousands of visitors made their way through the turnstiles at the Lanark Agricultural Centre to witness a range of other great displays and attractions such as stunt teams and trial demonstrations, as well as the great array of classic motorcycles and a number of autojumble stands.

The top attraction arguably came from the Scottish Supermoto, as the skilled riders battled the soaking wet dirt and Tarmac track to produce plenty of thrills, spills and gripping races.

High-powered sports bikes were in the hands of the Vertical Trix team, as they produced a stunt display that simply had to be seen to be believed and Classic motorcycles were not to be outshone as they defied the laws of gravity on the infamous Wall of Death.

Factor in a trials demonstration from Brian Marr, an Extreme Wheelie Machine for patrons to test their own skills and an inflatable mini-quad bike track for the younger visitors and the show's popularity becomes apparent.

"We have gone all out to make Lanark an action packed experience that combined stunning live shows and demonstrations with hands-on interactive attractions and row after row of stunning motorcycles," said Classic Bike Shows organiser, Nick Mowbray.

"It was very pleasing to see Bill and Ian Simpson here; they shared some incredible stories that came straight from the cutting edge of motorsport.

"We are delighted with how the show went - despite not having the best weather - and we are already looking forward to our trip to Lanark in 2014."

Classic Bike Shows will be back to work very soon, as they debut the Newark Bike Show at Newark Showground on Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23. Visit for more.
