Motorcycle Showcase

Motorcycle Showcase

IGNITION Festival of Motoring is revving up for a bumper motorcycle showcase when the 3-day motoring extravaganza returns to the SEC Glasgow between 4-6 August.

We've responded to your calls for even more motorcycles following IGNITION 2016.

Legendary manufacturers Harley-Davidson, Triumph, Ducati and Yamaha will all exhibit a range of stunning machinery including some of their latest releases.

Scottish stunt rider Kevin Carmichael and Broke FMX, the UK’s leading motorcycle display team, are set to light up the live street circuit with their very own styles of daredevil riding. 

Kevin Carmichael, official UK KTM stunt rider, said: “It’s great to see such a strong biking line-up at IGNITION Festival and I can’t wait to get to grips with the street circuit. I’ve been lucky enough to perform across the globe but it’s always a privilege to ride in front of a home crowd.”

A former World and two-time European Stunt Riding Champion, Kevin Carmichael is regarded as the innovator to beat. Coaxed out of retirement only to dominate the competition, he once removed the front wheel off his bike to do a trick. 

The crowd at IGNITION can see him perform with countless KTM bikes and various cars in his choreographed, precision stunt display. 

Joining Carmichael will be one of the UK’s premier display teams, Broke FMX. Regularly jumping 35 feet in the air, pulling acrobatic stunts whilst flying over gaps approaching 100 feet, it’s easy to see why they are renowned the world over. The team comprise a collective of the UK’s top-ranked freestyle motocross riders, innovators of the latest heart stopping tricks, they even provide informative on board commentary to the crowd while performing countless tricks at speeds of 50-60mph.

Between displays, fans can get hands-on at the interactive stand where they can view the bikes, meet the riders and learn more about FMX.

Bikers will also enjoy free festival parking in the specially created biker park – good news for the likes of Clyde Valley H.O.G and The Scottish Ducati Club whose members are due to descend on the SEC campus. (To access the biker park head to the West Entrance of the SEC Glasgow. Accessed Westbound on the A814 leading onto Stobcross Road, proceed along Stobcross Road to car park 5. There will be a cap of 100 spaces).
