The Lansdowne Classic Series has been sponsored by the National Motorcycle Museum for many years – now is our opportunity to lend them our collective support.
Coronavirus has hit museums hard as they rely on the footfall of their visitors to keep the wheels turning. The Museum has launched some initiatives to ease the situation until they are in a position to reopen to the public. Remember this national motorcycling treasure receives no external funding.
Without the income from our three sister businesses, the museum may not be able to reopen, and then remain open until they return to normal trading. The museum itself requires a surplus of around £500,000 per year just to break even. Therefore, on Friday 17/07/20, the museum will be launched an appeal which gives people the chance to help us raise the £500,000 required in two different ways.James Hewing, Museum Director
