ICONS of the bike racing world will be at Knockill Racing Circuit this weekend.

Organisers are promising a special and memorable event on Sunday, May 28, as the next round of the KMSC Scottish Bike Championship goes ahead.

Also returning after a three-year hiatus will be the Rewind Festival, celebrating racing and road bikes from the 1970s, 80s and 90s.

Those heading along, and the more than 120 racers entering, will be joined by a galaxy of stars such as four-time 500CC vice-world champion Randy Mamola, American legend John “Hopper” Hopkins, three-time British Superbike champion and ex-GP rider Niall Mackenzie as well as rising Moto2 star Rory Skinner from Perth.

Mamola was runner-up in the Grand Prix Championship in 1981, 84, 87 and 89, winning 13 GP500s, two of which were on board a factory Suzuki XR34 500 two stroke which will be on display.

John Hopkins has competed in the MotoGP World Championship, World Superbike Championship, and on his last visit to Knockhill, he was competing in the British Superbikes Championship.

Originally from Denny, Niall Mackenzie is an icon in his own right and his ties with the circuit go back to the start of his career when he made his debut on a Yamaha RD350 LC.

All four will be on track as well, riding period race bikes during parades and demos.

Road and race bikes from past decades will include GP bikes, TT winning bikes and others that have won numerous championships.

The championship meeting and festival will start at 9am on the day – visit knockhill.com/events for tickets and more details.
