8th October 2010
If you'd like to add your classic motorcycle to the array at the Classic Motorbike Show at Birmingham in November then here's how to enter, plus details of the Show itself...
This November's Footman James Classic Motorbike Show is looking for the very best examples of classic bikes down the ages to join the displays at Birmingham's NEC from 12th to 14th November 2010. The Pride of Ownership contest is aimed at individual owners of both standard and modified motorcycles who wish to showcase their pride and joy.
Supported by Meguiars, just 50 bikes can enter for the Pride of Ownership, which has seven categories covering bikes from all countries and of all ages. The categories are: Best Pre-1946; Best 1946-1959; Best 1960-1969; Best 1970-on; Best British; Best European, and Best Japanese.
Members of the RealClassic editorial team will select the best bikes, which can win a selection of prizes including magazine subscriptions and products from the Meguiars bike-only range. The overall winner will be featured in RealClassic magazine and all category winners will have a chance to appear on this site, too.
The Pride of Ownership winners will be announced on the final day of the Footman James Classic Motorbike Show on the live interview stage by one of the show's special guests.
Entrants will need to have their bike in place on Thursday 11th November and it will need to remain on static display until after the show closes on the 14th November. Each finalist will receive entrance passes for throughout the show, worth over £40
This year, in a slight change to the previous format of this event, the Classic Motorbike Show will be run in parallel and alongside the Classic Motor Show. This means that if you only want to visit the bike hall then that's all you'll pay for, and tickets start at £11 for admission to the bike displays. If you'd prefer to make a whole day of it and amble around the four-wheeled displays as well, then a combined ticket for bikes and cars costs from £17.50. It's worth bearing in mind that tickets are cheaper when prebooked, and you'll also have to pay to park a car at the NEC (so it's definitely worth car-sharing with a friend…)
The Classic Motorbike Show will also feature displays from the UK's favourite motorcycle clubs including these people:-
Plus the bike hall will host a trader village and a popular bikejumble as well as a live interview stage and classic bike trials action. Members of the RC Crew will be visiting the Show to do the judging and we may well organise an RC get-together at some point over the weekend - check the Message Board for details nearer the time.
