Cadwell Park is the place to be this weekend if you are mad about old bikes.

The circuit is hosting the VMCC Vintage Bike Championships over Saturday and Sunday in a weekend that will celebrate the greats of motorcycling’s past.

Machinery built and raced between the 1930s and early 1970s will be in action, evoking memories of John Surtees, Mike Hailwood, Giacomo Agostini and Umberto Masetti.

Cadwell Park has developed a reputation as a true biker’s circuit with iconic sections such as the mountain regarded as being ‘old school’, and surely there’s no finer place to re-live the golden era of motor racing.

The Vintage Motor Cycle Club has grown in size over recent years with increasing members and more events. The classes span from the Scotts and Norton CS1 of the 1920s, the Norton, AJS and Velocette singles and the Bantam racing classes, through the twins manufactured by Triumph, Norton, BSA, Vincent and AJS and BSSO Classes.
