VMCC Banbury Run 2014/vintage training day 2014 dates announced

Posted on


With the support of event partners Footman James Insurance Brokers, Bonhams Auctioneers & Old Bike Mart the VMCC is pleased to announce the 66th VMCC Banbury Run will take place on Sunday 8th June 2014.

With 600 entrants the VMCC Banbury Run is the biggest gathering & run in the world for machines manufactured before 1931. Operating over 3 different routes which all converge back on Gaydon the Banbury Run caters for those who wish to enter a timed event or those who just enjoy the thrill of riding with so many other Vintage, Veteran & Pioneer bikes. Discounted entry fees will be available for Veteran machines (manufactured prior to 01/01/1915) to encourage more of the very oldest bikes to enter the event.

In conjunction with auction partner Bonhams, the VMCCs Vintage Training Day stays as part of the programme making for a real Vintage Weekend.

All 600 Banbury Run places sell out before the closing date of 28/02/14 so it’s important that entry forms (which are available from VMCC HQ on 03/01/14) are returned as quickly as possible. 
The Bonhams Auction.

Event partner Bonhams will again be holding a sale of Pioneer, Veteran and Vintage Motorcycles the afternoon before the run on Sat 07/06/14. The venue for the auction will be Bonhams prestigious saleroom at Banbury Rd, Shipton on Cherwell, Kidlington, Oxford, OX5 1JH. 

The Autojumble

Supported by Old Bike Mart the famous Banbury Run autojumble is always a favourite as one of the best sources of Veteran & Vintage Motorcycle spares. If you are interested in an autojumble pitch please contact Natalie Thornhill at VMCC HQ or e-mail [email protected]

VMCC Vintage Training Day in conjunction with Bonhams Auctioneers

The VMCCs famous Vintage Training Day remains part of the event when Saturday 07/06/14 sees Vintage Virgins get the chance to learn to ride hand change and girder fork machines under supervision from their (VMCC Member) owners. Entry forms & more details will be available from VMCC HQ after 01/02/14.

Can you help?

We always require marshals to help at the checkpoints on the various routes or on the actual site and can promise you not only a great day out but also a packed lunch!  To find out how you can help please contact Helen Bensley at VMCC HQ [email protected]
