Visitors will also get the chance to hear and feel the noise of some of the world’s legendary racing machines as they are fired up in the paddock – and meet some of the riders who made them famous.

Bikers will also get the chance to browse trade, club and jumble stands, grab a bargain or seek out those elusive parts to complete a project or buy the makings of a new one.

The show will dedicate an area in which bike owners from all over the UK are invited to showcase their classics in a bid to win the coveted “Best in Show” award.
