Racing bikes return at the Palace

Sevenoaks and District Motor Club have announced that they will again stage their popular Crystal Palace Car Sprint, bike and car show on May 24 and 25, but unlike 2019’s return to the venue, this year will also feature classic and historic motorcycles performing high speed demonstration runs to recreate the period when bikes raced at the circuit, starting in 1927.

The club resurrected the venue with a sprint event in 1997, although initially only for classic cars, with this year seeing the expansion into two-wheelers.

Combinations are part of the motorcycle demonstrations at Crystal Palace.

While they’re starting with demo runs for the bikes, we can hope that this may expand to match the car entries, which are split into classes divided by year of manufacturer rather than engine capacity.


There will also be trade stands, an autojumble, car shows and various attractions aimed at the young and further information is available from Chris Judge on 07765 663258 or 01474 873628 or email You can also find details at and and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
