Fes­ti­val sea­son

Classic Bike (UK) - - WHAT’S ON 2018 -

Grand Prix leg­end and multi-world cham­pion ‘Fast’ Fred­die Spencer is al­ready con­firmed as star guest for this year’s MCN Fes­ti­val of Motorcycling and the like­able Amer­i­can is worth the ticket price alone. The out­ra­geously tal­ented Spencer – who won both the 500 and 250 ti­tles in 1985 – will be on hand through­out the week­end to share sto­ries of his on-track bat­tles with the greats of the two-stroke GP era. And there’s plenty more at Peter­bor­ough for clas­sic fans. Promised for the Mo­torex Fire-up Pad­dock is plenty of race­ware in­clud­ing the iconic 1962 Honda RC145 250cc four, the in­cred­i­ble Marsh four from ’64, an ex-phil Read ’74 MV 500 four and a ’72 Yamaha TZ700.

This year’s MCN Fes­ti­val will be just as good as the last one
