Raise your glass to 70 years of Grand Prix racing

The Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show returns to ExCel for three days in February and will celebrate 70 years of Grand Prix racing, as well as showcasing all the latest motorcycles, rare customs, biking celebs and more live action than ever before.

BMW, Ducati, Energica, Honda, Indian, Kawasaki, KTM, Suzuki, Triumph, Yamaha and Zero have already signed up, according to the organisers, who say the 2018 show attracted 40,000 visitors.

There will also be the debut of the Classic Dealer Village. Seeing a wide array of machines from classic restorers and dealers, every motorcycle on display will be available to purchase.

The Michelin Thunderdrome will host a number of race stars as they go head-to-head in bar bashing, action-packed live action racing. Visitors will be able to see 1987 500cc Grand Prix champion Wayne Gardner take on former World Superbike champion Neil Hodgson, British Superbike race winner Richard Cooper and a host of still-to-be-announced stars.

The all-new Michelin Rage Cage features a steel cage nearly six metres high and nine metres round. Multiple bikes will be tearing around the cage, performing stunts and thrilling the crowds with a gravity defying show.

Also returning for 2019 is the popular John McGuinness pub, where the Isle of Man TT legend will be propping up the bar, pulling pints and discussing his incredible career. The road racing legend will also be bringing along some of his most famous race bikes for fans to see in the flesh.

Racing fans will also be in for a special treat as the show celebrates 70 years of Grand Prix racing, showcasing an impressive array of machines starting from the very first year all the way up to 2018.

The show will be held between 15-17 February.
