Due to the weather conditions, the authorities and the organisers have regretfully officially postponed the Carole Nash MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show 2018 planned to take place this weekend.

The organiser apologies for any inconvenience. We will keep you informed of the new dates when we have more information from the organisers.

The UK may have gone crazy over ‘The Beast From The East’ but organisers of this weekend’s Carole Nash MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show have confirmed that it’s still all systems go for the biggest motorbike show north of the border.

Held at the Royal Highland Showground, within walking distance of Edinburgh Airport, the Scottish show traditionally provides the same opportunity to see 2018’s hottest new bikes in the metal as the big bike shows in London and Birmingham with some of the best local machines, a hall full of interesting classics and clubs and a perennially popular autojumble section.

Three special guests from the racing world have been signed up for this year’s event. Local hero Alex George is a former 500cc Grand Prix podium finisher and three time TT winner. The Glaswegian’s most famous hour came in 1979, when he beat Mike Hailwood by the narrowest of margins to win the Formula One TT.

Another Scottish 500cc GP podium man, Niall Mackenzie, will also be appearing at the show, along with his regular partner in crime, 2003 world superbike champion Neil Hodgson. It will be BT Sport commentator Hodgson’s first appearance at the Edinburgh show and, like his fellow ex-racers, he’ll be on hand all weekend for photos, autographs and to chat about his illustrious career on the Knockhill stage.

Outdoor activity includes the Scottish Stunt Freestyle Championship, displays from the Two Brothers Stunt Team and various classic bike fire ups over the weekend. Kids can also have their first taste of two wheels with Honda’s ‘My First Licence’ tryout, while show sponsors Carole Nash will be on hand to provide bike insurance quotes for showgoers.

The show takes place on Saturday and Sunday (March 3-4) and is open from 9-5 both days. Tickets are £17 on the door (with free admission for under 12s) but you can still book online for £13 (plus booking fee) at
