Over 200 motorcycle racing fans crammed into Colin Appleyard's Keighley bike showroom recently to enjoy an evening of entertainment with Team Mackenzie who are one of the country's top motorcycle racing families.

They are certainly not your average family next door! Father Niall is a triple British Superbike Champion and former GP star whilst sons Taylor and Tarran are current holders of the British Superstock and Supersport Championship titles respectively.


The team were joined on stage by Jack Appleyard, son of managing director Robin, who compared the evening and quizzed all three on their racing careers. It certainly proved to be excellent entertainment for the large crowd.

Jack is well known on the bike racing circuit as he regularly takes to the microphone at British Championship meetings.

"Our ‘Evening With’ has now become an annual event on the Colin Appleyard calendar and it just seems to go from strength to strength. This year has definitely been our best yet! I don't think we could have squeezed many more people in if we'd tried! Our thanks go to Niall, Taylor and Tarran for giving up their time. It was a great evening."
