What's it all about...

A kick-start to the new classic motorcycling year, the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic takes place on January 11-12 at Newark Showground. It offers a welcome respite from the hectic holiday season and a chance to get lost exploring the hundreds of stunning classic machines on display. With a good mix of traders, dealers and autojumble plots, it's the perfect place to grab a box of parts and spares, as well as finding that inspiration needed to finish your restoration for a summer of riding... or perhaps pick up a new project.

2020 Star guest: Frankie Chili!

Pierfrancesco “Frankie” Chili is to star as guest of honour for our 2020 event! Bologna born Frankie, as he is known to his fans had a long and successful career in most classes of races, winning the 125cc European Championship in 1985, before moving to Grand Prix level in 250 and 500cc World Championships, and ultimately World Superbike. The charismatic Italian will be on stage with Steve Plater during both days of the show and present the awards on Sunday afternoon.

WIN! Lunch with Frankie Chili and Steve Plater!

We’re offering our advance ticket buyers a once in a lifetime opportunity. You could win lunch for two people with Frankie himself, plus local racing celebrity Steve Plater! This will be held in a private room, giving you the chance to ask as many questions as you like and get the chance to listen to some amazing stories on a one-to-one basis.

About Scooter World...

It's not just classic motorcycles that will be celebrated at the Winter Classic, with the popular Scooter World hall making a welcome return! Local scooter clubs, private entries and traders will be in attendance, filling the two extra halls to create a scooterist's idea of heaven! The 2019 event saw our biggest and best Scooter World yet, and we're currently making plans for an even bigger and better experience for 2020's show! Watch this space…

About the Autojumble...

Not to be confused with the monthly 'Normous Newark Autojumbles we also run at the showground, the autojumble at the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic is drip-fed throughout the site, with stalls inside the main hall, outside and in the additional halls too. Hundreds of traders pitch up at the show with a vast range of autojumble for visitors to browse through as soon as they walk through the gates.


Trade stands at the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic are both varied and plentiful! Hundreds of traders are in attendance, selling anything from leather jackets to vintage machine manuals. Make sure that you go round all the halls on-site, because you never know what you'll find around the corner! It's the perfect way to spend the rest of the Christmas cash!

Club Stands...

Both classic bike and scooter clubs are regarded as the jewel in the crown at this event. Keeping the heart of the scene beating through their work-hard, play-hard approach, the owners' clubs take pride of place wherever they pitch up! They help make the show what it is with their phenomenal collections of incredible machines, not to mention their love for classic bikes and scooters! Cash prizes are up for grabs for the best three club stands that go out of their way to put on a good display – who will be the top three in 2020? You'll have to stay for the awards ceremony at 4pm on Sunday to find out!
