Hislop exhibition finds new home

Double British Superbike Champion's display goes to Hawick Museum

RACING MEMORABILIA celebrating the life of TT legend Steve Hislop has been transferred to Hawick Museum alongside a display dedicated to another racer who also came from the town, Jimmie Guthrie.

Curator Shona Sinclair said it seemed "fitting" that the stories of two great riders should be told under one roof.

Hislop, a multiple TT winner and double British Superbike Champion, died when his helicopter crashed into hills near Hawick almost five years ago.

Ms Sinclair said: "With agreement from Steve's family and friends, the decision was made to create a new Hizzy Room in Hawick Museum.

"We already have a display dedicated to Jimmie Guthrie so it seemed fitting to unite the remarkable stories of two of the greatest motorcycle riders of their generations under one roof."
