Dark skies meant slightly re­duced numbers for the 17th year of the CEMCC Illawarra Branch An­nual Show Day, but the qual­ity was still there among the healthy line up of bikes in their var­i­ous di­vi­sions. The Show Day is al­ways a pop­u­lar social oc­ca­sion to stroll the lush green lawns and re­new friend­ships. The venue is in a per­fect po­si­tion as it’s clearly vis­i­ble from the main road giv­ing the show an ob­vi­ous street pres­ence, invit­ing peo­ple in. As al­ways, the day fea­tured an amaz­ing di­ver­sity of mo­tor­cy­cles, with mod­els from pre-war to com­par­a­tively mod­ern. The Speed­way/Short Cir­cuit dis­play has be­come quite a fea­ture and this year was no dif­fer­ent with a great line up of bikes from many eras, and a num­ber of old faces from the dirt track side of the sport. Pre­sen­ta­tions were quickly con­ducted at 12.30pm as the weather closed in and the threat­ened rains came, but it had been an­other won­der­ful and well or­gan­ised show by the CEMCC stal­warts, with val­ued sup­port from Shan­nons In­sur­ance.
