BIKE INSURANCE FIRM IN THE HUNT FOR BRITAIN’S BIKING TALENT Sunday 20 July 2008 PDF Print Carole Nash, the UK’s favourite motorbike insurance broker, is once again searching for the nation’s finest two-wheeled machine with the launch of the 2008 Britain’s Got Biking Talent competition. A bumper prize package is on offer for the winner, including £1,000 cash and the chance to see their pride and joy displayed at one of Europe’s biggest motorcycle shows. Karl Galloway, of Takeley, Essex, took top prize in last year’s Carole Nash Britain’s Got Biking Talent competition and is set to fly out to Japan in September to enjoy the thrills and spills of the Motegi circuit. His modified Kawasaki 1200cc ZRX bike, which he built in memory of his mother, also featured in Carole Nash’s 2008 calendar which was given away and sold to over 120,000 bike fans nationwide. Now the UK’s biggest motorcycle insurance specialist, Carole Nash, in association with biker’s bible MotorCycle News (MCN), is once again seeking out the nation’s favourite motorbikes. Last year the competition attracted over 1,500 entries and to get involved this year all you have to do is upload a picture of your beloved bike onto the MCN website. An expert judging panel will then whittle down the entries to a shortlist of 50 which will be put to the public vote on both the Carole Nash and MCN websites. The 12 bikes receiving the highest number of votes will then be professionally photographed with their owners for the calendar. They will also feature on a special Carole Nash Britain’s Got Biking Talent stand at November’s International Motorcycle Show where the winner will be revealed in front of 200,000 show visitors. This year the owner of Britain’s best loved bike will walk off with a £1,000 cash prize with the runner up getting a Shoei helmet worth nearly £400 and the third placed winner £250 worth of Spada biking gear. The helmet and leather winners will also receive Carole Nash helmet and leather cover. All three will also enjoy up to £250 off a Carole Nash bike insurance policy, VIP passes to the International Motorcycle Show and a night’s accommodation. Rebecca Donohue, head of marketing at Carole Nash, said: “Last year Britain’s Got Biking Talent really captured the imagination of the biking public. We were deluged with entries and the judges faced a really difficult task in coming up with a shortlist. Karl’s Kawasaki was magnificent and a deserved winner but now we want to find its successor, the best loved bike in 2008.” Riders can enter their bikes on the MCN website from Wednesday July 23rd and they will stay online until the judges announce the top 12 finalists going through to the public vote on September 27th. To be in with a chance of winning just visit the MCN website then click ‘Upload your bike’, fill out a few details and upload some pictures. Carole Nash recommend choosing images that have been taken in good light against a clear background, without anybody sitting on the bike. Once a bike is uploaded, MCN users will be able to rate it from one to five, and post comments.
