After over a decade of suc­cess Bri­tain’s lead­ing Clas­sic Dirt Bike show is set to step up a gear as part of the Mor­tons sta­ble of motorcycle events and mag­a­zines.

The Pu­to­line Telford Twin Shock Clas­sic & Road Rac­ing Show – known to many of the thou­sands who at­tend each year as ‘Wrighty’s Show’ – is join­ing forces with other great Mor­tons events such as the mar­ket-lead­ing In­ter­na­tional Dirt Bike Show and the two huge events at Stafford the Ca­role Nash Clas­sic Motorcycle Me­chan­ics Show and the Ca­role Nash In­ter­na­tional Clas­sic Motorcycle Show. And as part of the deal founder Alan Wright, al­ready a reg­u­lar colum­nist in Mor­tons’ Clas­sic Dirt Bike mag­a­zine, will be stay­ing on in or­der to make sure the 2015 event over the week­end of Fe­bru­ary 21st – 22nd is big­ger and bet­ter than ever.

Alan Wright said, “It’s per­fect as far as I am con­cerned as I know the team at Mor­tons’ Clas­sic Bike Shows will look after what has been a labour of love for me for many years now but also a lot of very hard work. In fact in the best sense of the phrase, when it comes to dirt bikes, I’ll fi­nally be able to get my feet up as the show will be in safe hands!” Josh Brain took his third con­sec­u­tive win from Ricky Wig­gins in the Manx Two Day Trial. It is only the sec­ond time that a Manx born rider has claimed a hat-trick of vic­to­ries, the other be­ing Steve Col­ley.

The Manx sis­ters, Saskia and Eal­ish Baxter, are the first only fe­male crew of a tri­als side­car out­fit in the his­tory of the sport. Both of the girls are com­pe­tent solo rid­ers and they took a wellde­served 29th place on their Gas Gas in the Manx Two Day in late Au­gust with their first out­ing in com­pe­ti­tion on a side­car out­fit – Pic­ture Credit: Mike Rap­ley.
