Heck, there’s even free entry for the under 16s and the proceeds for the day go to the Nationwide Association of Bloodbikes and Severn Freewheelers.
This is the fourth Prescott event, and it promises to be larger than ever, with more manufacturers attending and more clubs confirmed than ever before.
For us classic buffs, there is a large display of historic race bikes in the paddock, demo areas, passenger rides, The Dave Coates stunt show, trade stalls, live music, good food and a host of entertainment on and off the track to keep the whole family amused. Guest appearances include: former three time British Superbike champion and Bloodbike ambassador John Reynolds, CMM’s Steve Parrish, motorcycle adventurer Nick Sanders and making his debut is BSB star Michael Rutter.
