The Event.
With the support of event partners Footman James Insurance Brokers, Bonhams Auctioneers & Old Bike Mart the format of the 65th “run” will be similar to 2012 but with new routes and checkpoints to challenge the riders. With 600 entrants the VMCC Banbury Run is the biggest gathering & run in the world for machines manufactured before 1931. Operating over 3 different routes which all converge back on Gaydon the Banbury Run caters for those who wish to enter a timed event or those who just enjoy the thrill of riding with so many other Vintage, Veteran & Pioneer bikes.

Discounted entries fees will be available for Veteran machines (manufactured prior to 01/01/15) to encourage more of the very oldest bikes to enter the event.
The event becomes even more exciting in 2013 when, in conjunction with auction partner Bonhams, the VMCCs Vintage Training Day also becomes part of the programme making for a real “Vintage Weekend”

All 600 Banbury Run places sell out before the closing date of 28/02/13 so it’s important that entry forms (which are available from VMCC HQ on 02/01/13) are returned as quickly as possible.
