Pierfrancesco 'Frankie' Chili, is to be guest of honour at the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic at Newark showground over the weekend of 11/12 January, 2020.

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 Superbikes.

When he retired from racing in 2006 he held the record for the most starts in World Superbikes 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 6 December. 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.

The show will also feature Motogymkhana UK, which will be offering free sessions to visitors when booked in advance.

Organisers plan to secure trade and autojumble sales.
