Did you tune in yesterday evening to see TV coverage of the recent Stafford show? Presenter Henry Cole explored the Show and talked to our VIP guest Graeme Crosby...

The Motorbike Show on ITV4 will feature presenter Henry Cole exploring the successful 19th Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show, which took place at Stafford County Showground in October.

Henry will introduce the event and talk about buying a bike that needs work, getting it fixed up and then bringing it back to the next Stafford show in April.

He’ll then discuss the Bonhams auction at the event, get bidding tips from an expert and follow some Brough Superior motorcycles as they go through the sale. In the final segment, he interviews racer Graeme Crosby, who was the guest of honour. Henry chats to him about his TT bike in the paddock and discusses what he does now. We then see Croz beside his Moriwaki Kawasaki on the main stage and Henry gets him to sit on it and admit that he is going to put in a bid.  

We later find out that he has managed to buy it.

The hour-long programme, which is the first episode of The Motorbike Show’s third series, will be screened on Monday, November 12, 8pm.
