A procession of motorbikes will join the funeral cortege of King's Lynn superbike racer Mark Fincham.
The family of the ex Royal Marine, who had part of his leg amputated after a car crash in 2007, has asked bikers to escort the funeral cortege from his family's home in South Wootton to the Catholic Church of the Holy Family.
The 37-year-old died after he was involved in a collision with another motorcycle during a race at Thruxton, Hampshire, on Sunday, August 6.
He rode for True Heroes Racing - a team of ex-service personnel who have suffered severe injuries.
His funeral will take place on Monday and after the service, which is due to be broadcast to those outside the church, the escort will lead the hearse to the cemetery.
