JIM Redman will make his final on-track appearance next week as he joins a host of stars to celebrate the Steve Henshaw International Gold Cup at Oliver’s Mount.

As the Scarborough circuit hosts its last major bash of the year over the weekend of September 24 and 25, Redman MBE will be among a number of racing legends appearing both in the paddock and on track.

The multi-World Champion has confirmed he will be hanging up his leathers after next week’s Gold Cup parade, where he will be joined by Giacomo Agostini, who may possibly be making his last appearance on the MV at Oliver’s Mount, and Phil Read MBE.

The three stars will be backed up by Steve Parrish, Mick Grant, Chas Mortimer, Dean Ashton, Roger Burnett, Trevor Nation, Eddie Roberts, Steve Tonkin, John Cooper, Nick Jefferies, Alex George, John Cooper and Mark Phillips in a parade on Sunday.

Heading the sidecar field is World Champion Tim Reeves, alongside Oliver’s Mount regulars Lee Crawford and Sam Christie, Steve and Matty Ramsden and Dave Wallis & Tony Belsey.

The sidecars will have three races in total over the weekend with all of them counting towards the UK Super 2 Sidecar Masters.
