Meet the Superstars at Mallory
Festival of 1000 Bikes Competition: Win exclusive admission to meet the racing stars at an exclusive buffet reception. Wayne Gardner, Carl Fogarty, Christian Sarron, Jamie Whitham, Mick Grant, Trevor Nation...
The VMCC's Festival of 1000 Bikes is special for so many reasons. Top of the list comes the opportunity to watch your racing heroes roaring at top speed around the track on the kind of machines that made the famous.
This year's event will be extra-special for one RC reader (and his/her best chum), who will actually have a chance to meet the past-masters in person. There will be an exclusive buffet reception on the afternoon of Saturday 13th July 2013, with a guest-list as long as your arm and stuffed full of the most famous names from motorcycle racing. And you could win a pair of tickets to attend…
The Festival of 1000 Bikes, in case you'd somehow missed all the publicity, takes place over the weekend of 12th to 14th July 2013. Around 1300 classic motorcycles will take to the track at Mallory Park, with masses of entertainment for the spectators and 'support crew' to enjoy, including pre-65 trials, scrambles, sprints, club displays, an autojumble, stunt show, fireworks, Stars on Stage interviews, real ale bar, live music in the evening - and of course the past-masters ride-by which is the highlight of the weekend for many.
This year you'll be able to see genuine ex-works rotary Norton racers piloted by their original works riders including Nation, Spray and Rymer. Double-trouble hits the track in the shape of Carl Fogarty and Jamie Whitham: back in action, banging fairings no doubt. Look out for a mix of two- and four-stroke flyers from the classic era, real racers and special replicas, ridden by the likes of Cooper, Redman and Rutter. And the star of the show, world champion Wayne Gardener, will ride solo laps on a genuine works Honda 500.
These are the people you might get to meet if you are our lucky winner. One RealClassic magazine subscriber will win a pair of tickets to the buffet reception; tickets which can't be bought for love nor money, plus a pair of entry passes for the whole weekend event (worth £80, so not to be sniffed at). You'll get to spend time with legends like Wayne Gardner himself, Carl Fogarty, Christian Sarron, Jamie Whitham, Mick Grant and co in the VIP area of the Hailwood Suite overlooking Mallory Park's start / finish straight.
To win this spiffy prize, you just need to have an active subscription to the monthly RealClassic magazine, and answer this suitably easy enquiry:
Q: Wayne Gardner won the 500cc world championship in 1987. Which bike did he ride that year?
Send your answer BY POST on a postcard or sealed envelope (ideally containing huge bars of chocolate for TP). Include your name, telephone number and email address, and send to: RC-FEST, PO Box 66, Bude EX23 9ZX
Closing date for entries is Monday 24th June 2013.
The winner will be drawn at random from the correct entries and contacted before Friday 28th June 2013.
There can be only one (winner in this instance), so in case you don't win, tickets for the Festival can also be purchased online in advance or at the gate on the day.
