Friends, family and supporters have marked a year since the passing of a hugely popular Angus road racer.
A memorial ride to Knockhill was held in honour of Andy Lawson who lost his life while competing in the Ulster Grand Prix.
The 25-year-old was one of the brightest prospects in the high-speed world of road racing, having won the Junior Manx Grand GP in 2014, and he had hopes to turn professional.
A convoy of motorcyclists gathered at the south side of the Tay Bridge on Sunday before travelling to the racing circuit in Dunfermline.
Once at Knockhill a commemorative plaque was unveiled in memory of Andy before a select few went round the track on Andy’s bikes.
Andy’s father Mike, who himself was a successful racer, led the way during the parade laps which were held during a break in the Scottish Bike Racing Championship meeting.
All of Andy’s bikes were present at Knockhill on Sunday including the GSR-600 Suzuki on which he won the Manx over the island’s legendary 37-mile Mountain course.
Andy’s 2014 victory, with a top average lap speed of around 118 miles per hour, fulfilled the promise he had shown with a third place finish at the race in 2013.
He was on the verge of what many in the sport expected to be a breakthrough to a factory ride before his life and racing career were cut tragically short.
Just a couple of months after surviving a high-speed TT crash, the dad-of-two suffered fatal injuries while competing in the Supersport race of the event over the Dundrod circuit in County Antrim.
The young engineer’s death was keenly felt throughout his home town community and the sport of road racing, with hundreds of bikers joining a cavalcade which accompanied his body on its final journey to Angus.
It has also been revealed that the Angus rider will be remembered at the Isle of Man circuit where he claimed his most significant victory.
The Classic TT and Manx GP will be staged there at the end of this month and between the two events organisers have agreed to a parade lap of the legendary TT circuit by Mike Lawson and his partner, Shani Cargill, both riding Andy’s bikes.
Mike will be on board the 350cc K4 Drixton Honda Andy rode to 11th place in the 2014 Classic TT event, whilst Shani will ride a 250cc two-stroke Kawasaki KR1 S the young star purchased in Ireland a few days before his fatal accident.
Andy’s partner, Billie and children, Terri will also make the emotional journey to the island to witness the parade lap honour and see for themselves the setting of the prestigious Junior Manx GP win.
