Two extra halls have been added to the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic makes its return to Newark showground on the weekend of 6/7 January, 2018.
Organisers say: “Established as the season opener to the classic biking year and with thousands of people flooding through the gates with Christmas spending money in their pockets and projects-a-plenty in their garages, there’s no better way to kick-off your year and get your business off to the start it deserves. The addition of two new halls as well means it’s going to be bigger and better than ever before!”
Guest of honour is Michael Rutter. In a career which goes back to the early 1990s, when a teenage Rutter took to the track following in his famous father Tony’s footsteps, Michael has amassed an amazing 14 North West 200 wins, an unequalled eight Macau victories and five Isle of Man TT wins. And he is still on winning form in the BSB Superstock class.
Exhibition manager Nick Mowbray said: “We’ve worked hard over the past five years to establish the Carole Nash Winter Classic as the official start to the classic year, and this year we’re really pulling out all the stops. Owing to the high demand from clubs and trade alike, two new halls have been added, making the largest show in this fantastic event’s short history. We can’t wait to see what 2018 brings!”
Scooters and the scooter scene have always formed an important part of the show and for January 2018 the scooter halls will feature a Mods and Rockers theme. Classic Scooterist Magazine editor Mau Spencer has helped to grow the niche area of the show, with plans to make 2018’s the most prolific yet:
“If everything goes to plan, it looks like this could be the biggest and best Scooter World we’ve ever done. In a bid to keep things fresh, we’re changing the format slightly, adding various interactive attractions within (and outside) the halls to keep everyone entertained.”
