Foggy and Granty to be stars of the LlanBikeFest
Seven-time TT winner Mick Grant will join king of the jungle Carl Fogarty as guest of honour at the Llangollen International Motorcycle Festival (LlanBikeFest) on Saturday, August 1.
Mick (70) is currently working with the Norton Race Team on development of the SG3 Norton racer and will appear at the North Wales bike showjust weeks after this year’s TT races. The bike will be competing in the Superbike and Senior events, ridden by Australian Cameron Donald.
The Yorkshireman will be talking about his career as a works-supported rider for Norton, Kawasaki, Honda and Suzuki, and his success riding bikes such as the three cylinder Triumph Trident, dubbed Slippery Sam.
The Llangollen site has previously hosted successful bike shows – the last in 2011 – but LlanBikeFest 15 is being organised by a new team of local motorcycle enthusiasts, led by Harry.
The Llangollen International Motorcycle Festival is set amid some of Britain’s best biking roads – at the foot of the Horseshoe Pass and the bikefriendly Ponderosa Café, and on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park.
On-site attractions will include displays, stunts, demonstrations, trade and club stands, plus beer, bands and evening entertainment. Followthe event on Twitter at @llanbikefest and Facebook at Llangollen International Motorcycle Festival.
