On Sunday 1st July 2018, Crich Tramway Village, in conjunction with the Vincent H.R. D. Owners’ Club, will be running the Classic Motorcycle Day – now in it’s second year. Following the huge popularity with both enthusiasts and exhibitors at last year’s event at the village and the numbers of registrations so far for 2018, it looks set to become an annual event on the classic motorcycle calendar.
The National Tramway Museum, set in the heart of Derbyshire, is a charitable organisation, with a large number of volunteers, whose motivation is to preserve the history of the tram, and the Vincent H.R.D Owners’ Club have a huge interest in classic motorcycles, so the mix combines the passions of the two groups of transport enthusiasts.
Last year, bathed in sunshine, over 300 classic motorcycles and over 1500 visitors attended the Classic Motorcycle Day, and this year it is likely to be even more popular.
It’s free entry for all classic motorcycle exhibitors again this year, thanks to local skip & grab hire firm ’Derwent Waste Management’, who have yet again sponsored the event.
There will be prizes awarded for ‘Best British Motorcycle’, ‘Best International Motorcycle’ decided by a judge and ‘Best in Show’ which will be decided by a public vote.
New for this year is an additional award for ‘Best Classic Motorcycle in Original Condition’ ((i.e. non-restored) which will be supplied and presented by Peter Kelly, Editor of Old Bike Mart magazine.
Everyone has full access to the Museum. There’s a shop, tearoom and Red Lion pub and food will be served until 5.00pm. In addition, there will be some amazing displays of classic motorcycles, unlimited tram rides all set in the beautiful surroundings of the Derbyshire countryside.
Admission costs £17.00 for adults, £13.00 for seniors, £10.00 for children, or £40.00 for a family ticket (two adults and 3 children). These prices include free return within 12 months (subject to opening dates and excluding the World War II events).
Entry tickets can booked in advance online or purchased on the door.
