Road-racing legend and 23 times TT winner, John McGuinness, presented a special award to staff at Footman James at the 22nd Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Show.
The guest of honour at the annual Staffordshire County Showground event presented the ‘Machine of Most Technical Interest’ award in recognition of the Moto Guzzie V8 1957 eight cylinder 500cc on its stand, courtesy of The Sammy Miller Museum.
David Bond, Director of Footman James said: “We are absolutely delighted that our special relationship with The Sammy Miller Museum has been recognised in such a way. The award gives both the Museum and ourselves great pleasure and recognises our passion and enthusiasm for classic bikes. Our thanks to the organisers for a really great event.”
Footman James has a special ‘affinity partnership’ with the Hampshire-based museum, home to some of the world’s most beautiful bikes.
It provides insurance advice and offers to museum visitors including details of its products that have been developed with the classic bike enthusiast in mind; owners can then tailor their policy with FJ+, options including agreed value, breakdown, track day and ride to work cover. Customers are kept up to date on museum news and offers allowing them to visit one of the world’s finest collections of fully restored motorcycles including factory racers and exotic prototypes.
Named after motorcycling legend, Sammy Miller, he regularly demonstrates the bikes at race circuits around the world, including events throughout Europe and as far afield as New Zealand and America. 11 times British Champion, winner of more than 1400 events and still winning competitions more than 50 years after his first victory, Sammy’s name is affiliated with the finest museum of racing and sporting motorcycles.
