National Motorcycle Museum Live open day

The National Motorcycle Museum has sponsored our WRR class for 18 years. Join us on Saturday 26th October where we’ll be supporting their open day with a display of classic race bikes in their Paddock Base. Arrive on a bike and enjoy FREE entry to the show and museum, £10 parking for cars. Watch Steve Plater and Henry Cole on the main stage, browse the many bike restoration exhibitors and perhaps you’ll be lucky in the ‘New’ 1977 Triumph Trident draw.

The final showdown at Snetterton

Entry forms for the final round is in our Documents section. Please get your entries in as early as possible to avoid disappointment – the grids this season have been excellent! With Goodwood Revival in between we need riders to round out the season in force. Let’s put on a good show and lead us in to a successful 2020.
