Celebrity chef James Martin and multiple world champion trial biker Dougie Lampkin deliver fast cars & spectacular stunts to the people of Manchester


On Tuesday 25th July, celebrity chef James Martin and multiple world champion trial biker Dougie Lampkin MBE hosted a ‘Petrolheads Lunch’ at James’ award winning restaurant at Manchetser235 casino.

The adrenalin-fueled event saw Dougie take to the Great North Square to carry out some high risk, jaw dropping stunts – which included jumping, at high speed, a certain celebrity chef! The thrill of the day was further enhanced when Dougie took to the casino floor, first riding up the escalators which certainly surprised many of the audience, before performing a high speed ‘wheelie’ while weaving through the casino tables and into the kitchen in the James Martin Restaurant – the kitchen staff certainly had their work cut out to continue service!

Guests were treated to a spectacular showcase of classic cars and motorbikes – both on the square and inside the casino itself – these included some of James Martin’s very own precious old Ferraris and Mustangs.

The unique and thrilling day was accompanied by great food and super-charged chat inside James Martin Manchester, where the celebrity double act chatted to guests about their love and passion for fast cars and food over a slap up three course meal.

James Martin says “This has to be my idea of event heaven. Fast cars, stunts, great food and terrific company…it’s was so exciting to be able to share my passions with the people of Manchester. We focus on delivering the best dining experience in the city, and I think everyone will agree that this showstopper’s going to be a tough one to beat!”

Manchester235’s Venue Director, Maxine Gibbons says “Manchester235 casino has always been committed to delivering the best buzz in town, but this certainly takes live entertainment to the next level, with the stunts and the cars perfectly complementing the thrill of the gaming floor”
