JAPBIKEFEST 2 2014

Post by Nick » Mon Jan 06, 2014 10:46 am

We are pleased to announce that there is another Japbikefest being held at Haynes Motor Museum.

After the success of 2013 we now have more room and more prize category's plus lots more, go to http://www.vjmc.com/japbikefest for all the details.

As some of you supported us in 2013 we would love to welcome you back again in 2014 to a bigger and better show with more room for private exhibitors and clubs.

Please book early as we anticipate a large showing and will have to close entries when we reach our capacity.

Hope to hear from you soon.

With kind regards

Nick Watson.

Hello Luders, we are having a Classic Race paddock this year which can also include all replica's, drag and street drag etc, we can provide secure cover for these or people sometimes prefer to supply their own so it helps to advertise there business or bike, also in this area the bikes will be allowed to start so the public can hear and enjoy more than a one dimensional show, however this might not be to everyones cup of tea so of course if people prefer they can show amongst the club and private exhibits but this must remain static, so no running of engines.
If i can help you in anyway please Email me and we can discuss it further if you wish.
Thank you.

that sounds good, everyone loves the smell and sound of a good 2-stroke.

When do you need to know for certain by?

I'm currently still building it and it's currently in more bits than what I would have liked, but I am making good progress with it and it should be ready to test by June this year. I should be able to commit in a few months time, as my year starts to pan out and the bike starts coming together.

As I am taking a year out from racing to complete this bike, it's probably going to be the best opportunity I've got until I retire from racing.

Less than two months to the JAPBIKEFEST 2 2014
The largest collection of classic Japanese bikes ever seen in the West Country will be on Sunday 14th September (1000-1700). The Taunton and Bridgwater section of the VJMC working in partnership with internationally famous Haynes Motor Museum brings the past alive with classic Japanese iron from every decade. Private exhibits, club stands, classic race paddock, legions of unique Japanese motorcycle history all housed indoors plus the outside race paddock where you can experience the sights and sounds of classic race machinery. Admission price allows access to both Japbikefest and Haynes Motor Museum so it’s two events for the price of one!

For more details go to www.vjmc.com/japbikefest

I was enjoying looking at the fab 6 until Gary's 300 special came on and its shiny bits burnt my retina! Wow what a fantastic finish.
Great line up Ben hope you have a good show.
