Event Description

After another record breaking event in 2011 the VMCCs Festival of 1000 Bikes will return to Mallory Park during July 2012 (date TBC by Oct 2011).

As in previous years the event will give 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.

It is now recognised that this unique event provides the best line up of “Past Masters” and famous machines assembled every year in Europe.

In 2011 none other than Triple 500cc GP World Champion “King” Kenny Roberts will be riding a works Yamaha OW60 in our “Past Masters” track feature on the Sunday of the event (his first time on a UK racetrack in front of the public since 1983).

VMCC CEO James Hewing stated “ whilst 2011 will take some beating, just watch out for what we have planned in 2012!”

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 2011)
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 of the weekend which will feature more attractions for 2012 as well as the popular “Stars on Stage” interviews.
