CLASSIC DIRT BIKE SHOW 2015
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.
