TERI flier Stuart Easton (pictured) is helping to honour Hawick superbike sensation Steve Hislop this weekend at Knockhill.

On what is the tenth anniversary of the passing of Hislop, an 11-time TT winner and triple British champion, organisers of the racing have christened the event the Hislop Knockhill Round of the British Superbike Championships.

And Easton and fellow Scot Niall Mackenzie will be central to the celebrations in a special lap on race day.

Easton will be riding a replica of the 2002 season Monster Mob Ducati on which Hislop won eight races and his second title
