On Sunday October 3rd, Crich Tramway Village in Derbyshire will host their 4th Annual Classic Motorcycle Day.
Organised in conjunction with the Vincent H.R.D Owners’ Club, the event combines the passions of vintage trams and classic motorcycles offering a great family day out. Derwent Waste Management have generously sponsored the event for the fourth year.
There will be trophies awarded for ‘Best British Motorcycle’, ‘Best International Motorcycle’, ‘Best Japanese Motorcycle’ and ‘Best Pre-war Motorcycle’ and ‘Best Scooter’ which will be decided by judges, while the public will have the chance to vote for ‘Best in Show’.
The Old Bike Mart magazine will once again provide the cup for ‘Best Classic Motorcycle in Original Condition’.
New for this year is an award for ‘Best Scooter’. Vincent H.R.D Owners’ Club organiser, Jon Lambley said: “The Vincent H.R.D Owners’ Club are keen to include all makes of motorcycles and scooters, and for all the various owners clubs to engage together in this celebration of two-wheeled machinery from the last 120 years.”
