The first weekend in the New Year saw thousands of classic bike and scooter enthusiasts descend upon Newark Showground. 

“Fast” Freddie Spencer, guest of honour at the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic, drew in large crowds as he took to the stage with local star Steve Plater. Talking about his life and career, and taking time to pose for photographs and sign memorabilia, Freddie was a hit with fans and show-goers alike.
Organisers say the show’s scooter element has grown in recent years, becoming a popular date on the scootering social calendar.

Moto Gymkhana UK also made its debut at the show, offering free 30-minute sessions for visitors. Good weather helped to make the new feature a great success, allowing for the area to run smoothly and attract plenty of spectators as well as people wanting to take part.

The organisers now turn their attention to The Carole Nash Bristol Classic MotorCycle Show, which takes place at the Royal Bath and West Showground in Shepton Mallet on 2-3 February.
