Bologna born Frankie, as he is known to his fans had a long and successful career in most classes of races, winning the 125cc European Championship in 1985, before moving to Grand Prix level in 250 and 500cc World Championships, and ultimately World Superbike.

When he retired from racing in 2006 he held the record for the most starts in World Superbike and along the way claimed 10 pole positions and 17 wins during what was arguably the hardest fought years in WSB.

The charismatic Italian will be on stage with Steve Plater during both days of the show and present the awards on Sunday afternoon.

Fans will also have the opportunity to win lunch with Frankie by purchasing their advance e-tickets to the show before December 6. All buyers will be automatically entered into a free prize draw to win two seats at the table with Frankie and local racing celebrity Steve Plater. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to spend time with a real racing hero and is expected to be very popular amongst fans.

The show will also feature many of its regular attractions, including the return Motogymkhana UK, who will be offering free sessions to visitors when booked in advance. More details on how to book will be available on the show website in the next few weeks.
