Pierfrancesco ‘Frankie’ Chilli, is to star as guest of honour at the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic at Newark showground over the weekend of January 11-12, 2020.
Bologna-born Frankie, as he is known to his fans, had a long and successful career in most classes of races, winning the 125cc European Championship in 1985, before moving to Grand Prix level in 250 and 500cc World Championships, and ultimately World Superbike.
When he retired from racing in 2006 he held the record for the most starts in World Superbike and along the way he claimed 10 pole positions and 17 wins during what were arguably the hardest fought years in WSB.
The charismatic Italian will be on stage with Steve Plater during both days of the show and he will present the awards on Sunday afternoon.
