Iconic motorbikes and world class riders are set to wow the crowds at this summer’s Cholmondeley Pageant of Power in Cheshire.
Motorcycle legend Dougie Lampkin, with 12 world titles to his name, will be appearing throughout the weekend of June 12-14 along with 11 times British champion Sammy Miller.
Miller, who has restored many rare and exotic machines and even opened his own museum, will be bringing his 1954 BMW RS54 Rennsport and the 1000cc 1925 Brough Superior SS100.
Other bikes on show will include a 500bhp Millyard Viper V10, powered by an 8-litre Dodge Viper engine, which has managed a top speed of over 200mph.
Joining the Viper is a Suzuki Hayabusa superstreet bike. With 650bhp and extended drag bodywork, the machine has run a quarter mile time of 7.22 seconds at 205mph on fully street legal tyres.
Event director James Hall said: “This is just a small selection of the amazing bikes set to thrill the crowds at this year’s event, which we feel will really showcase the power, skill and individuality present within the motorcycle community.
“With a wide range of content, from trials bikes to high speed drag bikes, we feel the two-wheeled element of the event will be even more exhilarating than ever.”
The eighth staging of CPOP will celebrate ‘power’ on land, air and water with events including a 1,000bhp-plus class on the Cholmondeley track.
The festival will honour the Lotus marque on Friday, American Muscle cars on Saturday and Eighties supercars on Sunday.
In addition, the world’s only flying Vulcan will be taking to the skies above Cholmondeley, with the Red Bull Matadors entertaining the crowd with an aerobatic display.
Tickets are now on sale at the CPOP website – adults from £26 and children free if purchased before April 30.
