Thunderfest 2015 Classic Time Trials Star at Classic Motorcycle Festival

Thunderfest organiser Frank Melling will be in action on his immaculate SeeleyThe Thunderfest Classic Time Trials, where riders have to battle to keep to their declared average speed, have provided some of the best challenges in classic motorcycle sport, as well as superb spectator entertainment, for the last seven years.

Now, for 2015, the Thunderfest is joining forces with the Welsh Classic Motorcycle Festival for what will be a fantastic weekend of classic nostalgia.

Thunderfest organiser Frank Melling said: “Thunderfest has enjoyed seven fantastic years at Darley Moor, but the opportunity to move to the Anglesey Circuit came at just the right time. Linking with the new Welsh Classic Motorcycle Festival for a combined event will take Thunderfest to the next level.

“The Anglesey Circuit is one of the great tracks anywhere in the world and our riders will be faced with a real challenge when it comes to keeping to their declared speed through the 1.55 miles of twists, turns and tight corners which make riding here such fun.

“Keeping smooth and fast, both essential if you are going to do well in the time trials, is going to be tough with Thunderfest running for 25 minutes plus two laps on each day of the Festival.

“We will also have our own area for Thunderfest at the Festival, with all our classic race bikes on display so it will have the look and feel of a classic GP.

“We still have a few places left in Thunderfest and anyone with a pre-1978 race bike, and a big smile, can write to us at for more information.”
