- “Fast” Freddie Spencer!
Freddie will be joining us for the whole weekend, and we can’t wait! After a hugely successful career in his native USA – the 1978 AMA 250cc Championship being his first big series win – Freddie got his first taste of international racing as part of the USA team in the 1980 Transatlantic Trophy Match Races, winning two races at Brands Hatch and beating World Champions Kenny Roberts and Barry Sheene in the process. Catch Freddie on the stage live with our resident host, Steve Plater.
- FREE Motogymkhana Sessions!
This fantastic feature is appearing at the Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic for the first time in 2019! Situated outside the Main Hall – we’re encouraging our visitors to book on to have a go at the event; it really will make for a fantastic day out! Described as the “grassroots motorcycle sport for everyone” Moto Gymkhana is a riding skills challenge involving quick changes in direction, bursts of speed, ruthless braking and accurate control. Ridden against the clock, the obstacle courses are designed to test the rider and not the bike, so can be done on ANY roadworthy motorcycle or scooter.
- Scooter World!
It’s not just classic motorcycles that will be celebrated at the Winter Classic, with the popular Scooter World hall making a welcome return! Local scooter clubs, private entries and traders will be in attendance, filling the two extra halls to create a scooterist’s idea of heaven!
- Awesome Autojumble
Not to be confused with the monthly ‘Normous Newark Autojumbles we also run at the showground, the autojumble at the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic is drip-fed throughout the site, with stalls inside the main hall, outside and in the additional halls too. Hundreds of traders pitch up at the show with a vast range of autojumble for visitors to browse through as soon as they walk through the gates.
- Perfectly lined up Private Entries
Our display of private entries is always something to behold, and January’s show plans on being no different! A huge range of marques are on show, creating a truly unique display of some of the finest privately-owned motorcycles in the country! Make sure you head over and pay them a visit in the Main Hall!
