The cream of the UK’s classic racers will join the CRMC’s biggest race meeting of the year with over 500 bikes in a packed programme of 42 races and six parades. This event will feature the Optical Express Classic Racing Motorcycle Championships. Two ACU Classic Championship races will be highlights, including the ACU 1300cc race for the much-coveted Wheatcroft Trophy.

Classic bikes from the 60s all the way through to the 90s will be on track with an amazing variety of solo machines ranging from 125 two stroke Hondas to 1300cc four cylinder four strokes from Japan. In the ever-spectacular sidecar classes, expect to see battles between outfits powered by engines from BSA, Triumph, Hillman Imp, BMW and Yamaha.

The racing will take place on the National circuit leaving the Melbourne Loop section to host a fantastic display of Grand Prix and historic race machines. And the paddock will be completely open all weekend. As ever, there will be star guests present too, at one of the UK's most celebrated motorcycle festivals.
