It’s less than a month until thousands of classic dirt bike fans get down and dirty at Telford International Centre over the weekend of February 17-18 for the awesome Classic Dirt Bike Show sponsored by Hagon Shocks.
The show is sure to have something that will tickle your fancy as clubs and private entries pack into the venue to display the most fascinating collection of historic off-road machines you’ll find under one roof.
They will also be joined by a mass of traders offering everything from parts, accessories, riding kit and project bikes to tempt you. The hugely popular autojumble opens an hour before the show on both days and will be overflowing with bargains.
To add to the excitement, Gerrit Wolsink, Colin Dommett, Peter Duke and the Hagon family will all be in attendance as guests of honour and will be interviewed on stage by top commentator Jack Burnicle.
The two-time Motocross (Scrambles) World Champion, Jeff Smith MBE, will also be in attendance at the show with his new book.
Road race fans aren't forgotten either at the Classic Off Road Show, with a lineup of mouthwatering road racers, including TT-winning machinery, some of which will be fired up over the weekend, weather permitting.
There’s also a chance to rub shoulders with some of our star guests at the Classic Dirt Bike dinner on the Saturday, which is located at the Holiday Inn on site. It includes a three-course meal and speeches from Gerrit, Colin and Peter as well as a Hagon Shocks 60th anniversary speech from Jack Burnicle, all for just £33 per person!
Discounted advance show tickets cost just £12 (£15 including early-bird autojumble) – this offer closes at 8.30am on Tuesday, February 13.

The Amateur Motor Cycle Association (AMCA) is delighted to announce that it will be launching a new online service, the AMCA Hub, to improve the online experience of riders and clubs across the UK.
Once launched, the AMCA Hub will replace the current online membership system to give riders and clubs greater control over their involvement in the sport. By creating a profile within the AMCA Hub you will be able to purchase and renew Rider Licences, apply for Championship registration, as well as enter the 100’s of events taking place each year.
The launch of the AMCA Hub will also see riders be able to take advantage of a number of new features such as digital rider licences that can be added to Apple and Android smartphones. There will also be a variety of tools design specifically for Clubs, including administration features for management members and event-related functionality that we hope will support events across the country.
The AMCA has been supporting the growth of off-road motorcycling since 1932, making the organisation one of the oldest authorising bodies of its kind in the world. We continue to provide support to riders of all ages and abilities across the country, and the launch of the AMCA Hub is the organisation’s latest initiative aimed at creating greater levels of engagement with all those involved in the sport.
Suzanne Potts, General Manager at the Amateur Motor Cycle Association, believes the introduction of the AMCA Hub will mark a big step forward for the organisation:
“We’ve known for a while that we wanted to improve the online services provided to everyone participating in our sport, but it was a case of finding the right partner who could deliver what we had envisaged. We believe we have found that partner in Sport:80 who came to us with a great reputation and glowing references from peers in our industry. They have taken the time to get in to the detail of our organisation and how we can improve the online experience for our members. Now just a couple of months away from launching the AMCA Hub, we have been really impressed with what we have seen and I’ve no doubt that it’s going to be of huge benefit to riders, clubs and our organisation.”
The AMCA appointed Sport:80 as its Technology Partner earlier this year, making the decision to adopt the company’s innovative sport management technology. The AMCA Hub is due to launch before the end of the year and will provide members of the Governing Body with a new way to engage with the sport prior to the start of the 2018 season.
