The Brooklands Motorcycle Show, Then and Now

Join us on the 3rd July as Brooklands Museum celebrate a staggering legacy of motorcycling at Brooklands matched with the best of today’s bikes and super-machines. Motorcycle enthusiasts, no matter what they ride or from what era, all are welcome to come and enjoy the spectacle.

Brooklands Museum - Events The event will showcase some of the historic bikes in the Museum collection, many of which will be demonstrated by the Brooklands Motorcycle Team. Alongside them, BMW and Ducati will be presenting their latest models along with an impressive line-up of other manufacturers including Triumph, Norton, Royal Enfield and MV Agusta. Former motorcycle and truck-racing legend Steve Parrish will be the special guest at this, the main Brooklands Museum motorcycle event of the year.

Brooklands Museum - EventsThe Brooklands Motorcycle Team have recently completed a total restoration of a Cotton JAP as an Outer Circuit racer. The bike will be run at the show and we look forward to seeing Steve Parrish aboard. Our aim is that for every manufacturer showing 2016 bikes, we can run historic race bikes of the same make. To add to the excitement, there will be some racing sidecar outfits amongst the older bikes. The famous Test Hill will provide a unique opportunity to see how the pre-War race bikes fare against today’s super-machines. Always a crowd pleaser, the Hill was constructed in 1909 to test acceleration and power and has been in use for events since the Museum opened 25 years ago. Steve Parrish is expected to join in with the activities, mingle with the crowds and no doubt be persuaded to blast up the Hill on a Brooklands bike. In and around the Race Bays will be traders and club displays with the Ace Cafe stand in the Paddock in front of the iconic Clubhouse.
