  1. True to Colin Chapman’s famous words “Simplify, then add lightness”, Italian Vins Motors produce ultra-light two-stroke, entirely hand-made motorcycles where the artisan work match the most advanced techniques.
     
    Join us at the Ace Cafe on the 9th of January as they present their Duecinquanta Strada UK homologated, an ambitious motorcycle which is a summary of innovation and tradition, aiming to achieve the best performances and be the lightest super sport motorcycle in the world! Designed to be at the highest level, the Duecinquanta road version is a unique combination of unconventional solutions: from the carbon fiber monocoque chassis to the alternative front and rear suspensions scheme, where every single component is optimized to carry more than one function.
     
    Special guest on the night is Mike 'Spike' Edwards who has raced every single year since 1982, with multi British Championship titles, an FIM Euro championship title, wins on the 'pure roads' at the Macau GP, and NorthWest 200!

  4. Rev your engines – the Classic Dirt Bike Show, sponsored by Hagon Shocks, will be back with a bang on February 15-16, 2020 with two off-road legends being confirmed as the guests of honour.

    American World Trials champion of 1979, Bernie Schreiber, will be gracing the stage at the popular off-road show held at Telford International Centre. Supreme commentator Jack Burnicle will be interviewing the star on stage over the weekend, probing into how he got to the top and investigating the new riding style he brought to the traditional sport of trials including the floating pivot turns and ‘bunny hops’.

    British 500cc motocross champion Bryan ‘Badger’ Goss has also been confirmed as a guest of honour for the show. Once again, Jack Burnicle will be interviewing ‘Badger’ on stage both days, delving into his Husqvarna success and how he got his hands on the British crown in 1970.

    Clubs and private owners will be showcasing their pristine off-road machines at the show, with hundreds of traders offering everything from new bikes to parts, accessories, riding gear and project bikes for those who are up for a challenge!

    Lastly, join the dirt bike stars on the Saturday evening for a three-course, sit-down meal for just £33. Exhibition manager Nick Mowbray says: “The Classic Dirt Bike Show dinner is an exceptional evening where off-road enthusiasts come together and hear fantastic tales from the greatest names in the off-road scene.”

    Tony Hutchison, of show sponsor Hagon Shocks – a proud British company which enjoys a strong working relationship with show organiser Mortons Media Group – said: “Once again Mortons has a quality line-up of guest speakers in both Bernie Schreiber and Bryan Goss, and we look forward to hearing their stories over the weekend. With the US not being at the forefront of a lot of people’s minds when talking trials, the achievement of Bernie Schreiber and his journey to becoming world champion will be a fascinating tale to listen to! The insight to the season of Bryan Goss’s British crown against the depth of riders of that period will be one not to be missed also.”
