Motorcycle Events in February 2019

 

1-2 February

Arenacross Round 3 & 4

Genting Arena, Perimeter Rd, Marston Green, Birmingham B40 1NT

We say:

Hugely popular with families, this import from the States has everything – stunts, racing and a tinnitus-challenging atmosphere. Better still, it’s all indoors so it can’t be rained off. The series only lasts six weeks at various venues until the end of February, so if you want to see some back-flips, 360’s and actual competitive racing, get in quick.

Prices: Adult from £26.80, Children under 12, £17.60, Family (2+2) £85.80, all plus delivery costs

2-3 February

The 37th Carole Nash Bristol Classic MotorCycle Show

The Royal Bath & West, The Royal Bath & West, Shepton Mallet, Somerset BA4 6QN

They say:
An event that many deem as their favourite of the year. With a friendly atmosphere, Classic Bike Shows’ annual trip to Britain’s southwest is well known for the extravagant exhibitions put on by the local motorcycle clubs who go all out to impress. Add several inside halls filled with a blend of traders, dealers and autojumble stands, it’s a must for any true classic enthusiast.

Prices: Gate: Adult £13, Kids under 12 £4

Run What Ya Brung

It’s recommended you arrive before 9.30am to ensure track-time. We can only accept a limited number of sign-ons, so arrive early or pre-book to avoid disappointment!

9-10 February

The Dragon Rally

Snowdonia, Conway, North Wales (precise details are released nearer the day)

Wikipedia says:
(Attracts] 1,500 to 2,000 riders depending on the weather and location. The rally is famed for its toughness and spartan facilities. Riders often have to endure miserable riding conditions to attend the rally and, once on site, they are expected to camp without regard to the weather conditions. It is an event held in veneration by large numbers of motorcyclists as a test of stamina and endurance because (in the first two decades at least) it was common to have to endure snow and ice to ride there. The Dragon is often grouped with the German Elefantentreffen (Elephant Rally) and the Norwegian Krystall Rally.

Prices: Entries £25 per bike. Free to watch

We Say:
A smaller, more intimate version of the main Overland Event aimed at bikers who venture further than the nearest cafe.
