General Information
Description
Ian Simpson is a retired motorcycle road racer from Scotland, nicknamed the 'Dalbeattie Destroyer'. Simpson began racing at the age of 16, and entered the British Championship two years later. He won the TT Superbike class in the 1994 HEAT British Supercup on a Duckhams Crighton Norton, the final year Rotary Nortons were raced at this level. As new homoglation rules required that a larger number of road-going bikes were produced than Norton could afford. Other British titles won by Simpson were in Supersport, taking the 600cc Supercup championships in 1991 and 1994, and the 400cc national championship in 1993. He was Production Powerbike champion in 1997. Simpson also won 3 Isle of Man TT and 5 North West 200 races. Simpson was injury prone, breaking both legs four times. It was a repeat of these injuries which caused him to retire in 2001, having narrowly escaped needing to have his right leg amputated. He later opened a sporting goods shop, managed the ETI Racing team, and competed in a handful of rallies, and has done racing tuition. He made a one-off comeback in the International Classic Grand Prix race at the 2008 North West 200
