Norton rotaries fire up at the London Motorcycle Show

1 of 1

Ten of the most famous Norton rotary engined race bikes will be roaring into life at the London Motorcycle Show this February 13-15 as they’re fired up on stage by some of the original riders!

From the prototype RC588 to Hislops TT winning NRS588, the rotary Nortons were the icons of a fabulous era in British motorcycle racing history. The machines captured the imagination of the British public with ingenious engineering, subtle rule bending and some charismatic riders.

Steve Hislop, Ron Haslam, Steve Spray, Trevor Nation, Ian Simpson and Terry Rymer all rode the Nortons in some of the most memorable and epic battles of the era.

Who could forget Hizzys victory over Fogarty and Joey at the 1992 TT? Or the famous JPS liveried bikes or Spray and Nation wheeling over the mountain at Cadwell Park during the 1989 British F1 championship?

Now, for the first time ever, the bikes, riders and engineers will come together at the ExCel centre in London to tell the story of this legendary British race team. With ten of the most famous bikes, key team personnel and the bikes being fired up inside the hall! it’s a British celebration you won’t want to miss.
