Local dealer supports Copdock show

The 28th annual Copdock Classic Motorcycle Club show is to be held on Sunday 6 October, 9am to 6pm, at Trinity Park Showground in Felixstowe Road, Ipswich.

Among those to attend will be local dealer Orwell Motorcycles.

“We returned to the Copdock show, regarded as the largest one-day motorcycle show in East Anglia, last year after a short break and, this year, we’ll be stepping up our presence,” said Rob Walters, dealership director. “Copdock Motorcycle Show is a very important event for Orwell Motorcycles. It’s a great opportunity to meet and chat with customers and other members of the whole motorcycle community.

“Last year we just took the Suzuki truck but this year we will be taking the Kawasaki unit as well.

“We supply machines and work closely with Ipswich and Suffolk Rider Training, which provides our official Kawasaki training – and it will be joining us on our stand.

“We’ll be taking demo bikes from our showroom for a static display but there may also be some surprise show machines.

“We might be able to get a classic Suzuki or a vintage race bike. There’s a chance we might get something unusual from Suzuki,” he said.

“We are hoping to have 25 to 30 bikes altogether.”

Show attractions include former European and world champion trial rider Dougie Lampkin, Dave Coates Stunt Show, Tigers Children’s Motorcycle Display Team, Ken Fox’s Wall Of Death, arena displays by Junior Grasstrack, Pre-65 motocross bikes and the Eastern Fourstroke Association, the Custom Marquee and Motoball.

This year’s guest of honour is Allen Millyard, famous for creating one-off magical motorbikes.

There will also be an undercover bike show, trade stands, auto jumble, owners’ club exhibitions, live music and refreshments.
