See John Mcguin­ness, Troy Corser, Neil Hodg­son and Chris Walker serve up a Slide show spectacular

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Slide, the fast-paced, han­dle­bar-bash­ing, celebrity-packed race se­ries at the Ca­role Nash MCN Lon­don Mo­tor­cy­cle Show is back for 2017 with an im­pres­sive line-up of star rid­ers in­clud­ing WSB su­per­star Troy Corser.

From win­ning the AMA Su­per­bike ti­tle in 1994 to his ill-fated stint aboard the Foggy Petronas FP1, be­fore re­gain­ing his WSB ti­tle with Suzuki in 2005, Troy is one of the most charis­matic and tal­ented rid­ers of his gen­er­a­tion.

Troy will cap­tain the Aus­tralian team as he takes on the for­mi­da­ble UK squad of John Mcguin­ness, Neil Hodg­son and Chris Walker around the Miche­lin live ac­tion arena.

Huge clas­sic auc­tion

Coys of Kens­ing­ton will be bring­ing a once-in-life­time col­lec­tion of clas­sic and his­toric ma­chines to be auc­tioned live at the show. The ma­chines orig­i­nate from the es­tate of Kent dealer J A Hitch­cock & Sons and this is the first time any of the bikes have come up for auc­tion. From a 2001 ex-james Tose­land Du­cati 999 to a 1927 Brough Su­pe­rior 680 many of the ma­chines are his­tor­i­cally im­por­tant. One of the most in­ter­est­ing bikes is a 1967 360cc Husq­varna ISDT bike rid­den by stunt man and off-road leg­end Bud Ekins.

The Auc­tion will take place on Fe­bru­ary 18 in­side the main hall and fur­ther en­tries are in­vited.

Bag some bar­gain kit

The 2017 Lon­don show is big­ger than ever with more floor space, more bikes and more trade stands sell­ing the lat­est rid­ing kit and last sea­son’s bar­gains. It is the ideal place to kit your­self out for the year ahead.­n­mo­tor­cy­
