A range of unique and powerful motorbikes, in addition to world-class riders, is set to wow crowds at this year’s Cholmondeley Pageant of Power (CPOP).
Dougie Lampkin MBE, world-renowned trials bike legend with 12 world titles to his name, will be appearing throughout the weekend showing off his extraordinary and at times nail-biting skills.
Another legendary biker taking to the track is Sammy Miller MBE. Successive British Champion 11 times and European Champion twice, Sammy has restored many rare and exotic machines, and even opened his own Museum in 1980. Sammy will be bringing two amazing bikes with him – the 1954 BMW RS54 Rennsport and the 1000cc 1925 Brough Superior SS100.
It’s not only riders; there is also a range of incredible bikes set to appear. A key highlight will be the extremely powerful Millyard Viper V10. Built by Brit bike builder Allen Millyard, this 500bhp machine is powered by an 8-litre Dodge Viper engine and has achieved top speeds of over 200mph.
Joining the Viper is a Suzuki Hayabusa superstreet bike. With approximately 650bhp and extended drag bodywork, this bike has run a quarter mile time of just 7.22 seconds at 205mph on fully street legal tyres.
Triumph will also be attending this year’s event, bringing along a selection of bikes from the their range.
James Hall, event director at CPOP, 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 famous 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.
The above, combined with camping, live music from Tenors of Rock and the RPJ Band and hundreds of exciting trade stands, will make CPOP the family-friendly motorsport event of the summer.
