Newark Winter Classic Bike Show Cancelled

Due to the worsening situation and rising infection rate of Covid-19, Mortons Media Group has reluctantly taken the decision to cancel the Winter Classic show, planned for 09 - 10 January at Newark showground.

This season-opening event has always been a firm favourite with motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the UK but with the increase of cases worldwide, Mortons feels this is the safest thing to do for the well-being of visitors and traders. Not only is the show a highlight in the event calendar, it is also a strong social event for visitors at the show, with people naming a 'day out with their friends', as one of the top three reasons for going. Given the current restrictions with the 'rule of six', the increasing infection rates and localised lockdowns nationwide, Mortons believes this is the most responsible course of action to take.

The next Winter Classic will now take place on 08 - 09 January 2022. Meanwhile Mortons will continue to hold regular outdoor Autojumbles at Newark showground and Kempton Park as currently scheduled and are planning our 2021 series of shows already. Please keep checking the website www.classicbikeshows.com for regular updates.

What's it all about...

A kick-start to the new classic motorcycling year, the Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic takes place 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.

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 2020 event saw our biggest and best Scooter World yet, and we're making plans for an even bigger and better experience at the next 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 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.

Traders...

Trade stands at the 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 next time? You'll have to stay for the awards ceremony at 4pm on Sunday to find out!

Private Entries...

Established as the season-opener for both classic bike and scooter enthusiasts, The Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic is THE place to immerse yourself in your favourite hobby! The question is would you like to take part? Why not display your pride and joy at the show, be it an utterly original BSA or fully restored Honda? We're looking for the best classic bikes the UK has to offer to go into our private entry display. All private entry display owners receive two free wristbands to get into the show on both days, plus a vehicle pass. All displays are automatically entered into the awards too – so you could end up with a brand-new trophy to take home with you!

Guest of Honour...

Previous Years...

In the past we have had some seriously big names at the show, including World Superbike and GP Hero – Frankie Chili, Fast Freddie Spencer, John McGuinness, Alex Lowes, Michael Rutter, Jamie Whitham, Roger Marshall, John Reynolds and the Birchall Brothers!

All the above have been interviewed by our resident compere and local racing star, Steve Plater. You can expect live talks on the Main Stage, autograph opportunities and the chance to get a photo with the star of the show too!
