Newark Winter Classic

Breaking the stranglehold that religious festivals and cultural pressures have on the festive period and the new year, any excesses can be walked off with a healthy stroll around the former RAF Winthorpe, north of Newark, Nottinghamshire over the weekend of January 11-12, 2020.

You’ll more likely know this as being Newark Showground, home to the regular ’Normous Newark autojumbles and, on that particular weekend, the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic!

Frankie Chili in action on the WSB Ducati.

Guest of honour will be Pierfrancesco ‘Frankie’ Chili, the Italian ex-World Superbike, 250 and 500 GP rider, and while Frankie never got a world championship – his best was fourth in WSB in 1998 and 2000 – he was one of the most popular riders in the paddock, and he’ll be there all weekend for interviews with Steve Plater (above, with Frankie) and for signing/ photo opportunities, and there’ll also be the chance to win a lunch with Frankie!
