The ‘Clas­sic Dirt Bike Show’ spon­sored by Hagon Shocks will be back with a bang on Fe­bru­ary 16th-17th 2019 with two iconic all-time off-road cham­pi­ons be­ing con­firmed as the guests of hon­our for next year’s crowd-pleaser.

As al­ways, Clas­sic Trial Mag­a­zine will be in at­ten­dance along with our new ti­tle Mo­tor­cy­cle Retro Re­play so come and pay us a visit. Mul­ti­ple world, in­door and Bri­tish Tri­als Cham­pion Dougie Lamp­kin will be a star guest at the pop­u­lar off-road show held at Telford In­ter­na­tional Cen­tre. The off-road le­gend will be ap­pear­ing on stage with supreme com­men­ta­tor Jack Bur­ni­cle who will probe into the highs and lows of how Dougie got to the top.

On the mo­tocross side, who is bet­ter than John Banks, the mighty BSA war­rior, who won four Bri­tish Cham­pi­onships and nar­rowly missed out on two World 500cc ti­tles. Once again Jack Bur­ni­cle will in­ter­view Banks on stage each day with a first-hand ac­count of his years in Europe in­clud­ing how Bengt Aberg beat him to the 1969 crown and of his ex­pe­ri­ences with the BSA com­pe­ti­tion shop un­til its clo­sure in 1971.

This year the show will be cel­e­brat­ing the off-road ma­chines of fifty years ago. The clock is be­ing turned back to 1969 and show con­sul­tant Alan Wright is seek­ing ma­chines of that year – con­tact him with of­fers of 1969 ma­chin­ery on: 01789 751422. They do not need to be con­cours con­di­tion but just solid ex­am­ples of that year’s of­fer­ings. Dozens of clubs and pri­vate own­ers will be show­ing off their beau­ti­fully pre­pared off-road ma­chines at the show while hun­dreds of traders will be of­fer­ing dirt bik­ing kit — from new mod­els, parts and ac­ces­sories to rid­ing gear and even project mo­tor­cy­cles if you’re up for a chal­lenge! Plus, why not have a rum­ble in the auto-jum­ble start­ing at 9.00am and get your hands on an off-road bar­gain.

Fi­nally, join us on the Satur­day evening where the two off-road le­gends will re­count mem­o­ries of their ex­ploits to as­sem­bled guests dur­ing a three-course, sit-down meal for just £33.00. Ex­hi­bi­tion man­ager Nick Mow­bray says: “Guests will hear fas­ci­nat­ing tales from le­gends in the off-road in­dus­try dur­ing the course of the meal. The Clas­sic Dirt Bike Show din­ner is an ex­cep­tional evening in the off-road scene not to be missed”.
