Win tickets to see Roberts, Spencer at Festival of 1000 Bikes


Legends such as Kenny Roberts, Freddie Spencer, Giacomo Agostini, Sammy Miller, Jim Redman, Mick Grant and Stanley Woods will all gather at Mallory Park from Friday, July 8 and we have got five pairs of tickets to give away.

This year’s Festival of 1000 Bikes will also star Steve Baker, Kork Ballington, Ron Chandler, John Cooper, Steve Parrish, Paul and Scott Smart, Graeme Crosby and a host of others far too famous to mention.

As in previous years the event gives enthusiasts the opportunity to ride their own machines in multiple track sessions over the weekend. On the Saturday of the event we cater for all classes of road machines from the earliest Veterans (discounted entry fee available for pre 1925 machines) through to machines of the super bike era which reflect the wide range of interests within the VMCC. With lesser noise restrictions Sunday is the day for riders to display their racing machinery in special track sessions running throughout the day.

King Kenny last rode at Mallory as part of the American ?Transatlantic Challenge? team & this will be a theme for the event this year as other original team Members from both sides of the Atlantic including Stevie Baker, Graeme Crosby and Mick Grant (amongst many others to be announced) will also be out on track as part of this spectacular re-enactment.

Keeping with the Yamaha theme the Yamaha Classic Racing Team (YCRT) will be making the trip from Holland to help celebrate 50 years of Yamaha racing in Europe. With multiple World champions such as Agostini & Read already booked to ride YCRTs superbly prepared works Yamahas on this year?s ?Past Masters? Sunday the Festival will again have more super star riders out on track than any other event of its type.

This year we will also be looking back to 1971 to celebrate 40 years since the epic Mallory Race of the Year battle between Agostini & Cooper. ?Ago? will be swapping his Yamaha Leathers for MV ones when he takes to the track with old sparring partner John ?Mooneye?s? Cooper.

Truly a Festival covering all aspects of Classic Motorcycling the event will feature:

  • Public Road (Sat) and Race Bike (Sun) Track Sessions
  • The biggest line up in Europe of Past Masters Machines and Star Riders on track.
  • Pre 65 Trials
  • Historic Grass Track
  • Historic Sprint Demo
  • Avenue of Clubs (50 clubs in attendance in 2010)
  • Trade Stands/Auto jumble
  • Real Ale Bar open all weekend with panoramic views of Stebbe Straight

Even more Live bands on the new ?Classic Racer Magazine Stage? starting Fri 8th July which will feature more attractions for 2011 as well as the popular ?Stars on Stage? interviews.
