Formerly known as The Barry Sheene Festival of Speed, the illustrious event  has grown to catch the eager eyes of the worldwide racing and motorcycling audience.

Celebrating decades of moto racing, machines from just about every year will be hitting the tracks in various races, creating a orchestra of engine sounds much to the pleasure of those enjoying the event.

It’s not just legendary machines that are the focus of this prestigious event, but the moto legends that ride them as well. Giacomo Agostini (15 time 350cc & 500cc GP World Champion) will be hitting the tracks along with Piero Laverda, Pierfrancesco Chili (Superbike, 250cc & 500cc GP Rider), Maria Costello MBE (Isle of Man), Steve Parrish (500GP Rider & Factory Team Manager), Troy Bayliss (3 Time Superbike World Champion & MotoGP Rider) Graeme Crosby (500cc GP Rider and TT Formula 1 Winner) and Kevin Magee (500cc GP Rider).

This weekend offers a rare and unique look into motorcycle history, paired with a chance to meet the legends that we all grew up with. Over 200 motorcycles will be competing in various division throughout the event, creating an orchestra of engine sounds and a myriad of excitement inducing smells from all the 2-stroke speed machines. To help ensure everyone’s appetites are truly sated over the course of the event, there’ll be a swap meet, show and shine, and a ton of trade stands and other outlets for monetary abuse.
