The 4th Uttoxeter Classic Motorcycle Show & Jumble - Preview
Home -> Events -> Ride and Event Reports ->

If you haven't already booked your ticket for the Uttoxeter Show on the first weekend of July then be quick - weekend camping passes are only available in advance and time is running out...

'The Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club is proud to announce its 4th Classic Motorcycle Clubs Show at Uttoxeter race course over the weekend of July 3rd and 4th 2010', says Steve Cooper, the club's media co-ordinator. 'Once again we are keen to give maximum value for money (especially in a recession) and therefore prices are set at a very keen at 7.90 for a day ticket or 18.00 for a weekend pass which includes camping on Friday and Saturday on nights.

'No matter where your bike was made there's a very good chance that there will be something on sale for it over the weekend. There's nothing like repeat business and we've noticed that we're seeing a lot of familiar faces in the trader's area year on year; even better we've seen new bookings as well which has to be good news for the fee paying public.

All Jims, bright and beautiful...

'Despite what may have been published in some areas of the press (not this sector I hasten to add!) the event is most certainly not a Japanese only event and our friends and supporters at the BSA Gold Star, Laverda, British Scooter, Vincent owners clubs et al would certainly take issue with such statements. Right from day one the aim was to make the show an inclusive, non-sectarian event; it's celebration of all things motorcycle...period! See below for a list of the clubs who'll be attending the show and putting on displays of the members' bikes. It'll make for an impressive array!

'Guest of honour this year is Alan Carter, road racer from 1983-1990 who stopped the racing world in its tracks when he won his very first grand prix. Racing at a time when the 250cc category carried a lot of prestige for the manufacturers Alan will doubtless have some interesting tales and anecdotes to tell when interviewed by our very own Uncle Jim Reynolds.

'For those staying on site we have a good number of showers and a large camp site where even the most exuberant child can run down their batteries thus giving mum and dad something of a quieter time, hopefully (?). If you are camping and really wish to make a full weekend of the event the facilities are open from mid afternoon on the Friday so why not arrive early, kick back and chill?

All Hondas, great and small...

'There's raft of things happening over the weekend including our very own Sights and Sounds where some of the bikes on display are fired up and the owners are interviewed about the machines. It's like primary school "Show and Tell" but with bigger toys; for those who say we're all a bunch of big kids the evidence is there for all to see.

'We also have two massive rallies on site with some of the most iconic machinery ever to come out the Britain. Expect to see more Gold Stars and Vincents than you can wave a stick at...although if you do engage in stick-waving the owners may very well take exception!'
