CAROLE NASH CLASSIC MOTORCYCLE MECHANICS SHOW
IS HEADING TO THE STAFFORDSHIRE COUNTY SHOWGROUND IN OCTOBER
In celebration of emerging and modern classics from the 1960s, 70s and 80s, the Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show at the Stafforshire County Showground is all set to entertain the motorcycling fraternity on the 18th-19th October 2014.
This year one of the special guest stars appearing is ‘Frankie’ Chili who takes to the stage in a rare appearance. He will be regaling the crowd with tales from his heyday in World Superbike racing and his battles with Carl Fogarty.
And then Carl Fogarty will be there on Sunday on the Oily Rag stand so visitors to the show have a chance to ask him for his side of the story!
As well as the glitterati of the motorcycle world the show will be bursting with a huge display of motorcycles and over 500 trade stands and clubs.
Bonhams will also be there with an offering of racewear, trophies and awards from the Barry Sheene collection.
Barry Sheene MBE was the darling of the 1970s motorcycle race scene, famous for his fearless speed and World 500cc Championship wins. His crashes and recovery were famous too, crashing his Daytona 200 in 1975 at 175 mph only to recover and get back on his bike and back on the racetrack within a few weeks .
Ben Walker, Bonhams Head of Motorcycles, said:
“Barry Sheene was an icon of motorcycle racing, with a legend that continues today. We’re delighted to be able to offer this collection as part of our Stafford Sale - we expect many of his fans who witnessed his rise to fame would take great pride in owning a piece of his motor racing history.”
The Barry Sheene Collection offered at Bonhams sale as part of the Stafford Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show, includes a race-worn Arai Helmet and Dainese leathers from Sheene’s Classic and Historic race meetings. Plus trophies and awards from his British and European races including some Grand Prix and International race events from Sheene’s Championship-winning years.
New to the show for 2014, are two parade sessions on each day in the venue’s main ring, with entrants invited to display machines from the 1960s through to the present day. And there’s also the usual action in the Classic Dirt Bike Experience area and in the Classic Racer GP Paddock.
Definitely a show to look forward to on its way in, hopefully, Golden October.
