Hizzy – the Steve Hislop commemorative exhibition – opens in his home town next week (Monday March 22).

The exhibition will be held in the Drumlanrig Tower Visitor Centre, Towerknowe, Hawick. It has been compiled by the Scottish Borders Council Museums and Galleries team to look at his whole life from how and when he learned to ride to his many world class victories.

The memorabilia on show includes trophies, bikes, clothing and spectacular race photographs.

The organisers are expecting thousands of Hizzy fans to visit over the Spring and summer.

Opening hours are 10am-5pm Monday-Saturday and 1pm-4pm Sundays. Admission is £2.50 for adults and £1.50 concessions. Children go free.

Steve Hislop died in a helicopter accident in 2003. Visitors to the MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show on March 13 and 14 were able to sign a book of remembrance for Hizzy. A cairn is also being built in the hills at Teviothead (the site at which his helicopter crashed) and there is a fundraising effort to erect statues of Hizzy in both the Borders and on the Isle of Man.
