The 2010 Festival of 1000 Bikes - Preview
Home -> Events -> Ride and Event Reports ->

Just three weeks to go before the VMCC's Festival of 1000 Bikes at Mallory Park; much more than a classic track weekend...

The Vintage Motor Cycle Club's Festival of 1000 Bikes will take place at Mallory Park on the weekend of the 9th, 10th and 11th July. It's now too late to sign up for a track session but there are plenty of other activities to make this one of the busiest weekend's in the VMCC's calendar.

The Avenue of Clubs will again feature displays from nearly 50 one-make motorcycle clubs from the UK and Europe. Some of the Clubs attending this year are having their own track sessions including the AJS and Matchless Owners Club, the Moto Guzzi Owners Club and the Rudge Enthusiasts Club.

What Rossi will be wearing next year. You heard it here first... Norman and his Velocette LE

And of course the RealClassic roadshow will be all present and correct in the Avenue of Clubs. Well, all present, anyway. Come along and say hello.

Spotless. Well, the bike is anyway.... Mad Mike's 1958 Norton Model 50

The Autojumble/Trade Area will again be right in the thick of the action helping enthusiasts to locate that elusive spare part.

A Pre-65 Trial will be run on Saturday, in conjunction with the VMCC Taverners Section.

The VMCC GrassTrack Section will again be putting on a spectacular competitive grass track on Sunday.

The Sprint Section of the VMCC will provide a fantastic display of straight line action during the lunchtime/late afternoon of Sunday on Mallory Parks start /finish straight. There will also be a static display of Sprint machinery in the dedicated Sprint machine display marquee located in the race bike paddock during both days of the event.

We need more Orange bikes... Chilly's Shovelhead Harley Davidson Sportster...

Entertainment will be provided on the evening's of both Friday and Saturday when house band Chaser will be covering all your classic rock favourites in the VMCC "Big Top" marquee until late in the evening. Also in this area on Saturday evening will be the famous "Stars on Stage" featuring interviews with some of the "Past Masters" who will be riding on Sunday. The bar is open day and night with a fantastic real ale bar over looking the track action on Stebbe straight.

The Past Masters Track Spectacular on Sunday sees Fast Freddie Spencer return to Mallory Park to join four decades of World Champions. He will be joined on track by Jim Redman MBE, Phil Read MBE, four times World Superbike Champion Carl Fogarty MBE and double World Endurance Champion Terry Rymer.

Also appearing on track in the best line up of Stars and Machines in Europe (more to be announced) will be: John Cooper, Mick Grant, Sammy Miller MBE, Stan Woods, Ron Chandler, Chris Vincent, Trevor Nation, Steve Spray, Ian Simpson, Charlie Williams, Tommy Robb, Malc Wheeler, Colin Seeley, Tony Rutter and Nick Jeffries

In association with the National Motorcycle Museum four of the original Norton Rotary Race Machines will be out on track with their original star riders aboard in what promises to be a truly historic event.

In conjunction with Phil Morris Racing and back again for 2010 will be no less than 25 Honda RC163 machines appearing together, something that has to be heard to be believed!

New to this year's "Past Masters" will be a special feature showcasing machines from the famous Brooklands Circuit. Provided courtesy of the Brooklands museum volunteer team machines featured will include record holders such as the Brough Superior "Works Scrapper".
