A CHARTERED accountant will be exhibiting an award-winning motorbike he has made himself from scratch at a hill climb event for classic sports cars and racers in Droitwich.

Peter Ormerod and his cycle The Naughty Gentleman will be manning a stall during the Chateau Impney Hill Climb on the hotel grounds next weekend.

A senior partner at Ormerod Rutter, Mr Omerod’s bike, which he slaved over for more than two years, is an example of craftsmanship in a league of its own.

The accountant utilised the help of Second City Customs in Bromsgrove and Reborn to be Wild in Cheltenham, creating a chopper that is not just for show.

Mr Ormerod said “hopefully, people will enjoy seeing the marvellous bike in all its glory” when it goes on display at the Parkland South event on Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14.

The bike was made to look and feel like a traditional old school hog with the advancements and performance of the best modern technology.

The Hagley and District Light Car Club organised its first sprint in the grounds of the hotel on September 29, 1957.

Welcoming all the leading hill climb competitors of the day, the Chateau was hailed by Autocar magazine as "easily the most picturesque of this country's sprint and hill climb venues".

Chateau Impney’s original speed events epitomised the golden era of motorsport, when amateur and professional drivers competed alongside one another in the fastest cars of the day and across every discipline of motorsport.

In 2015, the speed trials were relaunched as the Chateau Impney Hill Climb – almost 60 years since motorsport first came to the Chateau.

Double the length of the original track yet still rooted within the same grounds, the MSA-approved Hill Climb course proves challenging for even the most experienced competitors.

Over 16,000 attended the event last year.

Mr Ormerod's bike was awarded the prestigious S&S President’s Award for Best Production Custom at the AMD World & European Championship of Custom Bike Building in 2013. See: chateauimpneyhillclimb.com.
