Time to get dirty
International Dirt Bike Show, October 29 to November 1, 2015, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire
It’s just a matter of days now until the 2015 edition of the International Dirt Bike Show opens its doors to motorcycling fans who consider an autumn half-term visit to Stoneleigh Park a must-do trip. The show kicks off at 9.30am on Thursday, October 29 and the displays, fun, action and entertainment run flat-out right through to 5pm on Sunday, November 1. Here’s a little taster of what to expect this year…
The manufacturer line-up is brilliantly varied and, on the hot-metal front, the giants of the industry, including Honda, Husqvarna, Kawasaki, KTM, Suzuki and Yamaha will line up alongside trials and enduro specialists Beta and Sherco in the main exhibition hall, while Bultaco, Fantic, Mecatecno, Rieju, TM and Vertigo will all be on display in hall three. Couple this amazing line-up with extensive displays from major distributors servicing the worlds of clothing, parts, accessories, gadgets, tyres, lubricants, trucks, trailers and more and you soon get the picture that the Dirt Bike Show has much to offer.
Traditional visitor favourites will be catered for, with on-stage entertainment hosted by British and World Superbike commentator Jack Burnicle, live action out in halls four and five with Arena Trials, Danny Butler’s MTB spectacular, the International Dirt Bike Show Minibike Supercross and the have-a-go Electric Zone. The younger members of the family are accommodated too, with My First Honda Licence, Strider Bikes and Kids Quads. Following its popularity last year, the amazing Wall of Death also makes a welcome return.
In a free-to-enter prize draw, one lucky show fan will win a stunning Honda CRF250R worth over £6,600. This is a serious bit of kit for the MX2 competitor as, amongst other updates, the uprated 2016 model enjoys a substantial top-end power boost from a newly-developed HRC cylinder head, piston and con-rod, providing stronger bottom-end torque without sacrificing mid-range performance. The CRF will be situated on the Classic Dirt Bike magazine stand in hall three and will be on display throughout the four-day show. The winner will be the first name selected at random and visitors can enter the competition at the show itself or online at www.dirtbikeshow.co.uk
There will be plenty of other opportunities to win prizes with many exhibitors running competitions, so keep your eyes peeled. Be sure to check out www.dirtbikeshow.co.uk in the lead up to the show and click the BUY TICKETS HERE button to buy advance tickets and download the indispensable Show App.
