Our 2020 guest is….Frankie Chili!

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 were arguably the hardest fought years in WSB.

The charismatic Italian will be on stage with Steve Plater during both days of the show and will 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 in to 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  – so make sure that you’re in with a chance of winning by buying your ticket in advance!
