International Classic Motorcycle Show This Weekend!
If you have no plans this weekend, we suggest you get yourself down to the Carole Nash International Classic Motorcycle Show. The motorbike show is perfect for those of you who appreciate good old classic bikes as there are so many great models on show to set your eyes on.
This year’s event will be held at the Staffordshire Country Showground from Saturday 22nd – Sunday 23rd April where, in addition to the many classic bikes on display, you can visit hundreds of trade stands and auto jumble to pick yourself up some new bits and pieces (you can find an exhibitor list on the website, as well as a show guide).
As you would expect, there will be a variety of club stands featuring some of their own private entries to be viewed by the show judges, and at this year’s show the main focus is on British machine builds, so make sure you check them out.
Guest of Honour at the event will be three-time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss who will be on the main stage answering some of your questions. Bayliss will also be on-hand at the Classic Racer GP Paddock where you can catch some of the world-famous race bikes from over the years being fired up several times over the weekend.
If that’s not enough, you can take part in the classic dirt bike demonstrations which will be carried out by the editor of the Classic Dirt Bike Magazine or check out the Wall of Death stunt show from the Fox family who have been touring since the 1920’s. It’s one you won’t want to miss!
Moreover, if you fancy purchasing a classic bike to keep as your own, you should check out Bonham’s motorcycle auction on Sunday 23rd April at the Stafford Show where many bikes will be on offer in the Spring sale.
Opening Times- Saturday 22nd April: 9am-6pm
Sunday 23rd April: 9am – 5pm
Tickets are £14 for Adults, £13 for Senior Citizen’s and £4 for Children under 12 years old.
