The Classic Bike Show of 2010
By: Ian Grainger
If you only visit one show this autumn then make sure it’s the 17th Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show, held over the weekend of 16th-17th October 2010, at the Stafford County Showground. The one show that truly has something for all motorcycling tastes is bigger and better than ever and here is a sneak preview of why...
Guest of Honour...
Multiple World Champion Eddie Lawson will be in attendance all weekend! This year’s guest is extra special as it will be Eddie’s first visit to Europe in over 15 years! There will be plenty of opportunities all weekend to meet him and hear his fantastic racing tales – bring your camera!
Once more the Classic Bike Shows Team will be warmly welcoming top manufacturers to the event. Not only will the public be able to view the latest bikes – they will also get to ride them – visitors just need to bring their bike gear and both parts of their licence! Triumph, Royal Enfield and Yamaha are all in attendance, along with first-timers to the Mechanics Show, Harley-Davidson, who are bringing along their new 60ft demo-truck!
The Classic Racer GP Paddock...
The sights and, more importantly, sounds of a race paddock come to life in the Classic Racer Grand Prix Paddock; something no self respecting race fan should miss at this year’s show! With an oversubscribed entry list many of the stunning race machines will be getting their first public airing, and the quality of the restoration work will be put to the test as the bikes are fired up in full public view at both 12.00 and 2pm both days! Remember the earplugs!
The Classic Dirt Bike Experience...
It’s back! The Classic Dirt Bike Experience gives off-road fans a dedicated hall for trials, scrambles and enduro. Plus the meaty street scramblers and trailies that were rarely used as their makers intended but give their owners a barrow load of fun! Throughout the weekend there will be talks on stage and guest interviews to name just a few of the exciting plans for this fairly new area to the show. Of course all motorcycles are better when they are in action and Dales Classic has arranged a spectacular demonstration of trials skills in the live action area outside the hall. There will also be a surprise in store from Classic Dirt Bike Editor Tim Britton – don’t miss it!
With so much going on, including more than 1000 stallholders, over 1500 classic bikes and the famous Bonhams Auction – this year’s show is set to be huge and you will need both days to get round it!
Gates open Saturday and Sunday from 9am – see you there!
