This year’s Classic Motorcycle Day on Sunday 2nd July at Crich Tramway Village will be the sixth event for the partnership with the Vincent HRD Owners Club and with sponsorship from Derwent Waste Management.
The event has attracted over 350 entries for classic motorcycles, made up of vintage machines to modern machines of the 1990’s, all of which must be over 25yrs old.
There are numerous trophies for the best motorcycles and scooters, judged by expert judges, including Best Original, Best British, Best Japanese, Best Italian, Best International, Best Pre-war motorcycles, and Best Scooter.
The ‘Best in Show’ Trophy will, again, be voted for by the visiting public, who are encouraged to browse the whole display before making their selection.
Vincent HRD Owners Club organiser, Jon Lambley said:
“Many of the classic motorcycle owners consider this event to be one of the most important in the year, and we hope that everyone will enjoy this year’s display and vote for their favourite machine.”
Exhibitor places for this year’s event are now fully booked, thanks to having the new on-line booking system and the huge demand for places. There are no exhibit entries on the day, due to space, but motorcyclists are welcome to visit, and along with members of the public, park in the car park.
Events Manager at Crich Tramway Village, Candi Bell, said:
“The event is so popular, that we are already full of classic motorcycles for display. We are looking forward to welcoming everyone for another great day for browsing the classic collection of motorcycles and enjoying vintage tram rides and live music in the afternoon from The Moonshiners.”
As usual, visitors to the village can always enjoy unlimited rides on the vintage trams. If you need a breather, stretch your legs on the Woodland Walk Sculpture Trail and Rita’s Tea Rooms and the Red Lion Pub will be open as usual serving refreshments.
