A DROITWICH chartered accountant will be showing off his ‘Naughty Gentleman’ at the town’s Chateau Impney Hill Climb this weekend, writes Ben Tolley.
Peter Ormerod, the senior partner at Ormerod Rutter, took two years painstakingly building the rare motorbike from scratch and it is the only one of its kind in the world.
Mr Ormerod was helped with his creation by Second City Customs in Brromsgrove and Cheltenham-based Reborn to be Wild.
Back in 2013 the bike was given the S&S President’s Award for Best Production Custom at the AMD World and European Championship of Custom Bike Building.
As well as displaying the bike, Mr Ormerod will also be talking to people about the benefits of Research and Development (R&D).
R&D tax relief is a government incentive which rewards companies for investing in innovation.
Peter said: “I’ve decided to take The Naughty Gentleman to our stand at the Hill Climb because it’s such a great example of R&D in action.
“Hopefully, people will enjoy seeing the marvellous bike in all its glory.
“They’ll also be able to find out more about R&D in general and the incentives that are available and how they can save money.”
There will also be a competition to enter on the firm’s stand at the event.
The Chateau Impney Hill Climb takes place tomorrow and Sunday, July 13 and 14.
Spectators will be able to explore the open paddock where they can get up close and personal with the drivers and impressive cars.
There will also be a free vintage fair and a working steam engine from the Severn Valley Railway and Demon Drome, the world famous Wall of Death motorbike stunt show.
