Classic Motorcycle Mechanics


Stafford celebrates 40s style!


The Carole Nash Internatio­nal Classic Motorcycle Show at Stafford will be celebratin­g the 75th anniversar­y of VE Day.

Highlights for the weekend (April 25-26) include a 1940s-themed hall, with a Spitfire and Hurricane taking centre stage, surrounded by an abundance of privately owned classic motorcycle­s and incredible displays from owners’ clubs. Organisers have been in contact with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight to hopefully secure a flypast from the Lancaster, Spitfire, Hurricane and Dakota with confirmati­on due in March.

Classic motorcycle clubs are encouraged to theme their stand and make the most of the fancy dress element, with increased prize money up for grabs for the top three, courtesy of show sponsor, Carole Nash Insurance.

Outside, the popular Classic Racer GP paddock will undergo a facelift and transform into a bigger and better Firing-up Area, with all manner of different machines and engines making some serious noise over the two-day event. Show organisers have teamed up with Historic Aero Engines, a group of enthusiast­s who restore and display historic aero engines on a non-profit basis to encourage public interest in iconic aero engineerin­g. The team will be bringing a Rolls-royce Merlin engine and an Armstrong Siddeley Cheetah engine to showcase and start up in front of the crowds. And don’t forget the huge indoor and outdoor autojumble, more than 900 traders in attendance and the Bonhams auction. For more go to: www. classicmag­
