A big thank you to everyone who came to the Ace Cafe Ton-Up Day at Brooklands Museum on Sunday, with over 1600 people visiting, along with nearly 400 bikes on site plus an increase in clubs and traders present our second Ton-Up was a great success.
Nearly 100 different bikes, ranging from pre-war racers to modern superbikes, raced up Test Hill to entertain the crowds. Another popular attraction was our band “Lew Lewis and the Twilight Trio” who got peoples feet tapping and a few on the dance floor with their rocking music. With the sunny weather most people stayed outside or in the music marquee but a few did take advantage of our cinema in the Club House to watch “The Wild One” and “Leather Boys”. Other exhibits included Martin Scorey’s amazing “Seed Drill Racers”, Surrey Speed Shop’s bobbers and Corsa Itailiana’s Moto Guzzi and Royal Enfield cafe racers.
Henry Cole of ITV4s Motorbike show was visiting the event with Gary Pinchin, the editor of Classic Bike Guide. Gary was trying to teach Henry the ways of motorcycle journalism and Henry will be writing an article about the show for the magazine. With so much to see in such a short time the Motorbike show will be returning to Brooklands Museum very soon so that Henry can have the chance to ride up Test Hill and find out more about the museum.
Next year’s Ton-Up day is in the diary for July 5th 2015 so hope to see you then. Please find club and trader application forms attached, book early to avoid disappointment.
