It’s a winning formula at Crich Classic Motorcycle Day

Both visitor and entry numbers were up for the second annual Classic Motorcycle Day to be organised in conjunction with the Vincent HRD Owners’ Club at Crich Tramway Village in Derbyshire on a glorious first day of July.

The magical blend of classic motorcycles and vintage trams proved a winning formula, and once again the main sponsor was Derwent Waste Management, with managing director John Kunica and his children helping to present the awards.

John Burbidge received the brand new Old Bike Mart Trophy for the best machine in original condition, the Brough Superior seen below, from OBM’s Lynsey Young.

The event drew more than 2000 visitors and 500 motorcycles, and the wide spectrum of bikes on display naturally included a good selection of Vincents, along with an excellent turnout of BSA, Triumph and Norton machines and many others, including scooters.

One of the main talking points was the impressive display of more than 45 BSA Gold Stars outside the Red Lion pub on the main street.

The spirit of the the Classic Motorcycle Day at Crich Tramway Village is epitomised by this great line-up of BSA Gold Stars outside the Red Lion pub on the attraction’s High Street.

The Robin Hood Riders put on a great display of racing motorcycles, with plenty of noise when they ran their engines at 1pm.
