Motorcycle Monthly - - News -

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.
