7th March 2005

Join In and Pay Less

One of the not-so-secret benefits of being a RealClassic reader is that you can save money at shows and events, and even get in for free at some if you bring a bike along......

Event Fast Approaching! Do This One Quick!

For the first time on Easter Monday, March 28th 2005, the RealClassic Roadshow will be attending the Ashford Classic Motorcycle Show and Bikejumble in Kent. We'll be manning the RC stand indoors, and would love to have some readers' real classics join us to put on a RealClassic display. And here's the good bit: admission is usually 3 for adults, but if you're bringing a bike to go on our stand then you can hop over to where you can download an exhibitor's booking form - and get in for free!

You need to get the form in the post pronto, because it'll have to be with the organisers by March 18th in order for your pass to be sent back to you in time to set off on Easter Monday. We'd love to host an array of all sorts of classics at the Ashford Show - working heroes, concours champs, Britbikes, Japanese, Italians and all - and will of course further reward all RC attendees with a huge helping of JaffaNobs. And FW will probably offer you a hundred pounds for your P&J, unless of course BikerMarc has already accepted his generous proposal...

The Show takes place at Ashford Livestock Market, which is on the A2070, about one mile south of J10 off the M20. If you don't prebook your bike for the display then admission is 3 for adults (but kids are free), and the doors open at opens 10am (but come a little earlier if you're bringing a bike for the stand. We'll be setting up from 9am). See you there!


Post-TT Parade Lap Savings For Subscribers

The Mallory Park Post-TT Meet on June 12th is always well attended. As the 'winding down' event after so much frenetic activity on the Isle of Man, the paddock is always full of familiar faces and the parade laps show off some of the world's finest two-wheeled machines to an enthusiastic crowd.

Entry to the event is by ticket only: each ticket admits one person and costs 15, with a discount of 3 if purchased in advance. RealClassic Club readers will be able to get real value for money however, if their bikes are entered into the 'concours event' at Mallory Park Post-TT RealClassic Meet.

Anyone entering their bike will receive two tickets (total face-value of 30), allowing two people and one bike to spend the whole day at Mallory Park. That ticket *also* includes two parade laps, on the circuit. And how much will that cost? 20! That's right: two entry tickets *and* entry for one bike to the Classic Parade laps, for just 20.

It's not often you have the chance to ride around a race track at a leisurely (or otherwise...) pace on your P&J, so why not have a go?

Subscribers Save At The Gate

Here's two further opportunities for card-carrying RealClassic Club members to save a coupla quid on show admission. (How do you become an RC Club member? Simple - all subscribers to the monthly magazine are automatically enrolled in the RealClassic Club, and a personalised membership card is sent out along with your magazine).

Come along to either the Malvern Classic Bike Show and Jumble, or the South of England Classic Bike Show and Autojumble, on April 3rd and April 10th respectively, and wave your club card when you get to the gate.

You'll be given admission at the discounted OAP rate (and this is where we usually make a joke about how RealClassic makes you old before your time, But we made that joke last year. We need a new joke. Any suggestions?).

The RealClassic Roadshow will be attending both events, so you can renew your sub in person, or pick up a binder, or indulge yourself with a TP Tee (or just grab a HobNob and ask Frank about Norton Navigator timing. He'll love that).

The Ardingly event has really grown in the last year, so it'll be interesting to see how many new bikes and people come along this time.

Oh, and by the way, the Best In Show winner from last autumn's Ardingly Show is featured in the March edition of RealClassic magazine (RC12). If your bike is chosen as the concours champ then it too could appear in the magazine in future. Fame! (Sort of). Fortune! (Well, not a lot). A warm cosy glow! (Yes, plenty of that).
