Mackenzie, who hails from Fankerton, near Denny, Stirlingshire; won the British Superbike Championship three times from 1996 to 1998 with the Rob McElnea-run Yamaha team, and the British 250cc and 350cc titles twice earlier in his career. He had a long career in the Grand Prix motorcycle racing circuit, debuting in 1984 in the 250cc class. He moved up to the 500cc class in 1986 on a Suzuki before spells on Honda and Yamaha motorcycles. He was 4th in the championship in 1990, and finished in the top 10 in the championship on six other occasions.[1] His final racing season was the 2000 British Superbike series, although he did a farewell one-off at Knockhill in 2001 and stood in for the injured Yukio Kagayama at Donington Park in 2003.

The Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling brings together five of the biggest and best events in the motorcycle calendar to create a unique and action-packed fortnight of two-wheeled sport in the very heartland of motorcycle racing The Festival, which runs from Saturday 18th August to Friday 31st August 2018, encompasses the nostalgic Classic TT Races, the iconic Manx Grand Prix, the Vintage Motor Cycle Club Rally and Festival of Jurby, the Manx Two Day Trial and the Classic Weekend Trial – all providing a wealth of unbeatable road racing, motorcycling nostalgia and dirt bike action making use of every inch of the island’s stunning scenery and public roads. In addition, the fortnight’s motorcycling celebrations will include themed events, parade laps, and displays of exotic motorcycles, special chat shows, autograph sessions, family entertainment and more. Meanwhile, away from the action, you will find many chances to experience the best of the island’s stunning countryside, award-winning artisan local food and drink and great music and entertainment from the official programme at the paddock and Villa Marina through to the plethora of informal evenings in the island’s many pubs and clubs.
