The Newark Bike Bonanza, on the weekend of June 22-23, is set to celebrate all that is great about the world of classic and modern biking, showcasing a number of amazing machines.
Bringing together enthusiasts and aficionados from far and wide, as well as a host of well-known motorcycling names, this two-day extravaganza at Newark Showground promises to be an absolute must for all bikers, or anyone with an interest in life on two wheels.
“The team behind the Newark Bike Bonanza are all big bike fans and we are very excited by the line-up,” commented show manager Nick Mowbray.
“It’s going to be a weekend of great sights, sounds and petrol smells, and we can’t wait to share the whole experience with our visitors.
“It really is the perfect opportunity to jump on your own transport and come down and take a look.”
Among the premier attractions will be the appearance of TT stars John McGuinness, Gary Johnson and Conor Cummins.
Known to his legions of fans as the ‘Morecambe Missile’, McGuinness has just completed a remarkable 20th Isle of Man TT race victory and he will be on hand at Newark, along with his rivals, to discuss life in one of the world’s most competitive and dangerous sports.
Local Superbike ace Alex Lowes will also be in attendance, along with his British Supersport star Ben Wilson.
The Race Paddock will be a hive of activity, featuring a display of classic and modern racing machines that will be fired up over the weekend.
Organisers are particularly excited by the Racing Sidecar section located in the paddock, with it being a rare opportunity to witness such a large coming together of this type.
Arrangements have also been made for visitors to park their bikes in one of the large, secure indoor halls at the showground, allowing for showgoers to get a glimpse at the vast array of machines coming through the gates.
There will be a host of two-wheel tricks in a gravity-defying stunt display from Steve Colley, Ken Fox’s Wall of Death and an Extreme Mountain Bike Show courtesy of Danny Butler.
To highlight the vital work that is being done in the field of road-safety, the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, the local Road Safety Partnership and the Nottinghamshire fire department will all be on site.
All of this, plus a special RAF flypast from the Spitfire and Hurricane and live evening entertainment, makes for an unmissable two-days jam-packed with dedicated motorcycling action.
