Those who have been to every Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show (and I bet there are a few of you out there) might want to skip this first bit: 2015 marks the 22nd running of the world-renowned bike event. That’s a lot of history. In fact, some of the newest modern-classics which we’ll be celebrating were probably new when the first show took place. A scary thought!
With all of that history comes plenty of tradition, and as ever we’ve done our best to uphold it for 2015. The traders, the clubs, the display bikes, the activities, the auction... it’s all happening and having talked to many of the sellers and exhibitors attending this year, the standard is going to be as high as ever.
On the other hand, we’re well aware that just because the show has 21 successful years under its belt, that doesn’t mean we can rest on our laurels. In 2014 we introduced Cavalcade Sessions to the showground’s main ring, and this has proved to be a popular addition which will be making its return. At our April event in Stafford we launched the Restoration Theatre, where expert advice on restoring and maintaining old bikes is delivered in separate sessions held throughout the day. That’s being introduced to the October event as well.
These certainly aren’t fundamental changes, but developments to a muchloved formula which we’re confident will give visitors an even more rounded and jam-packed show experience.
This Show Guide provides the necessary information on everything taking place, but if you have any questions once you’re through the gates then our information desk is always manned. Before, during or after the show you can get all the latest from our website – classicbikeshows. com – where you will also find links to our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages, plus information on how to download our Classic Bike Shows App available for Apple and Android devices.
All that’s left for me to say is thank you to everyone involved in the organisation and delivery of the event. You are what makes the show the spectacle that it is, and we look forward to welcoming you all on October 17-18… and then for many years to come. Nick Mowbray Exhibition manager Classic Bike Shows
