Festival of 1000

December 21, 2011

The festival last year was a huge success

The 2011 Festival of 1000 Bikes was a monster and huge interest is already being expressed in next year’s event. The VMCC is delighted to announce that the festival returns to Mallory Park on the weekend of July 6-8, 2012.

Support will come from Footman James Insurance Brokers, Bonhams auctioneers, Mortons Motorcycle Media, The National Motorcycle Museum and ERIKS UK.

Expect to see a collection of classic Suzukis, originally ridden by the likes of Sheene, Crosby, Mamola, Uncini, Luchinelli and Rossi. The bikes see action on the track in the hands of Phil Read, Mick Grant and Wil Hartog.
