Guests of Honour

2024 – The BSA/Triumph Edition

Introducing our Guests of Honour:

A.R.C. Lampkin

Alan ‘Sid’ Lampkin is the middle brother of the famous Lampkin brothers, full name Alan Raymond Charles Lampkin. Born in April 1944, Alan was nicknamed Sid by his older brother Arthur as Sid the Super Motorcycle Salesman, when he sold a heap of bikes one day when Arthur was away from his bike shop in Silsden. When Arthur returned Alan had almost cleared the shop of stock!

Alan or Sid as he is known throughout the off-road motorcycling world became a talented all-rounder, riding trials and scrambles as a works rider for BSA, Cotton, Suzuki and of course Bultaco.

He also represented Great Britain at the ISDT on many occassions. Sid hopes to have his ex-factory BSA 250 (748MOE) at the Highland Classic, a machine which won both the 1966 Scott and the Scottish Six Days Trials.

Make sure you get Sid’s autograph on the page at the back of this year’s official programme! (Photo: Sid Lampkin in the 1966 SSDT on the cover of the 1967 programme)
