Classic Motorcycle Mechanics - - CONTENTS -

Yup, it’s that very special time of the year – 2017 sees the 24th Ca­role Nash Clas­sic Mo­tor­cy­cle Me­chan­ics Show take place! Once more the show takes place over the week­end of Oc­to­ber 14-15 at the Stafford County Show­ground, We­ston Road, Stafford, Stafford­shire ST18 0BD. This year our very special guest is one of the 1990s’ hard­est bike rac­ers: Aaron Slight. The Kiwi was twotimes a run­ner-up in the World Su­per­bike se­ries, back when it was packed with le­gends such as Carl Fog­a­rty, Scott Rus­sell, Si­mon Cra­far, Pier-francesco Chili, An­thony Gobert and John Kocin­ski. For a full in­ter­view with our very special guest, head to page 26, for his take on the glory days of World Su­per­bikes see page 8. Aaron will be quizzed reg­u­larly about his rac­ing ca­reer by our mas­ter of cer­e­monies Steve Plater, but that’s not all the show has to offer. As well as the ex­cit­ing Bon­hams auc­tion – in which the star of the show has to be a one-mile-old Suzuki RG500 – there are all the usual club stands, auto-jumble pitches as well as the Clas­sic Racer pad­dock and the clas­sic off-road arena. You re­ally can’t af­ford to miss the modern clas­sic show of the year, so head to: www.clas­sicbikeshows.com for more on the event and ticket in­for­ma­tion.
