Would you like to go along to the world's leading classic bike show for FREE? We're giving away six pairs of tickets to the 27th International Classic Motorcycle Show, and here's how you can win them...
Last time we did a beano ticket giveaway, it was for magazine subscribers only. So this time, to be fair, the competition is for online RealClassic.co.uk readers (that's you, by the way). The how-to-win bit is further down - first of all you have to read all the stuff about how wonderful the show is going to be. It's to make you all excited, or something. Certainly makes us excited. We're very excited, and the show is still six weeks away. Lord knows how excited we'll be by April 28th and 29th 2007, when we come to set up the RealClassic Roadshow in the Sandylands Hall at the Show. Anyway, on with the puff…
Preparations for the 27th International Classic MotorCycle Show, held at Stafford County Showground over 28-29th April 2007, continue to gather pace with many unusual bikes and a fantastic number of new clubs coming forward to take part. The Vincent Owners Club promise, as ever, a fine selection of the famous Stevenage-built machines, plus an added interest will be the recently completed 2006 Black Shadow replica, built entirely from new club spares scheme-supplied parts. (Oh, and we featured this bike already, so you can read more about it here).
The 27th International Classic Motorcycle Show is on 28th & 29th April 2007 at the Stafford County Showground, Weston Road, Stafford, Staffordshire ST18 0BD. It opens from 9am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, and admission is Adult £8.50, Senior Citizen £6.50, Child 7-15 years £2, up to 7 years free. Camping costs £3 per night. You can prebook discount tickets by calling 01507 529529, but you don't need to because here (finally!) is the competition…
To win a pair of FREE tickets to the 2007 27th International Classic MotorCycle Show at Stafford, simply send in the answer to this question BY POST and include a stamped, self-addressed envelope. (Yes, that is because we are too mean to pay for the postage. But we won't let the SAE go to waste; if you don't win the tickets then we'll send you an RC sticker. OK?). It's multiple choice, so you really shouldn't have too much trouble getting it right. Unless your primary language is Urdu, or something.
Q: The RealClassic stand at the Stafford Show will be located:
A: In the Sandylands Hall, close to the edge of forever and a darned long walk from the coffee vendors
B: Somewhere near Stoke on Trent. Or is it Outer Mongolia?
C: In the main hall, directly opposite the main door where everyone can see us as soon as they walk in and have pockets full of cash to spend on magazines (oh ho ho ho, my we do like a good joke, don't we, etc)
Send in the correct answer (to PO Box 66, Bude EX23 9ZX, UK) and an SAE by Friday the 13th of April (couldn't resist that date). The winning tickets will sent out on Monday 16th April 2007 so you should have them by the end of that week, in plenty of time for the show on the 28/29th.
And if you and a mate do get in for free, then the very least you could do is spring for a cup of coffee (white no sugar) or a bottle of water (still not sparkling) for us poor hard-working types who'll be slaving away on the stand…
PS. We would've run a picture of the tickets so you could see what you might be winning, but we dare not, in case some scheming beast downloads the image (all of 500 pixels wide and at screen resolution) and somehow creates a believable forgery from it and so sells zillions of fake tickets on ebay, or something. No, really. We got a bit of a telling off on this score, so don't you go getting us into trouble…
