Stars at Stafford, 15/16 October 2016
David Aldana, Don Emde, Mert Lawwill and Gene Romero: Four of the racing celebrities who starred in the iconic film On Any Sunday are set to be reunited at this autumn’s Stafford Show...Don Emde
Nominated for an Academy Award, the documentary ‘On Any Sunday’ portrayed the riding lives of hotshot motorcycle racers of the early 1970s. Directed by Bruce Brown, it was produced by Steve McQueen who also appears in the film, along with champions and rookies from desert racing, short-circuit competition and moto-cross. Four of the original cast will be reunited as guests of honour at the Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show on the weekend of 15th and 16th October 2016.Mert Lawwill
David Aldana, Don Emde, Mert Lawwill and Gene Romero not only found fame on the big screen, but also participated in the massively popular Anglo-American Match Races, held in the UK in the 1970s at circuits such as Brands Hatch, Mallory Park and Oulton Park. Mert Lawwill’s appearance at the show will be his first visit to the UK since that time.Gene Romero
Classic Racer magazine editor Malc Wheeler said: ‘On Any Sunday will have played its part in inspiring many of our Stafford showgoers to get on two wheels in their youth, and I’m sure there will be plenty of excitement as they get to meet four of its stars.’
Show-goers can expect to see the stars interviewed on stage and there’s usually an opportunity to secure a precious autograph or two. The rest of the Stafford Show will feature its traditional blend of hundreds of trade stands, concours displays of private entries and a staggering array of club stands, a massive autojumble, race bikes revved up in the Classic Racer GP Paddock, trials demonstrations in the Classic Dirt Bike Experience, the Bonhams auction, a live restoration theatre and more.
