Meet Boorman at NEC

1 of 1

Long Way Round star and soon-to-be Dakar racer Charley Boorman will attend the opening weekend of the International Motorcycle and Scooter Show at the NEC in Birmingham.

Boorman is facing his biggest challenge as he sets off on New Year’s Day to tackle the Dakar Rally – considered by many as the world’s toughest race. He’ll travel through Spain, Morocco, Mauritania, Mali, Guinea and Senegal over 15 days. He’ll be up against 230 other riders, but his main aim is to finish.

He’ll be accompanied by BMW Off-Road instructor and six-time Dakar racer Simon Pavey, and fellow racer Matt Hall. BMW is supplying all three BMW F650GS Dakar bikes, plus technical support.

You’ll be able to chat with Charley about his experiences on the Long Way Round and his hopes for the Dakar on the BMW Motorrad Stand between October 29-30. The stand is number T283 and located in hall 7 at the NEC in Birmingham.

And if you can’t make it on those days, we’ll be running the site live from the NEC Show for the entire duration. You’ll find us at the MCN stand in the race paddock.
