180mph Guzzi at Bristol

Sammy Miller will be displaying two rare and powerful motorcycles at the 33rd Carole Nash Bristol Classic Motorcycle Show on February 16-17, including a 1957 V-eight Moto Guzzi 500cc racer (image) – one of just a handful completed and capable of 180mph.

A Discovery Channel programme last year ranked it the ninth greatest of all motorbikes ever made. It will be joined at the show, on the Royal Bath & West Showground, Shepton Mallet, Somerset BA4 6QN, by Sammy’s equally rare 1950 Moto Guzzi V-twin 500cc.

There will be more than 300 traders at the event too and more than 40 clubs showing off their members’ finest machines and dozens of private entries from all periods of motorcycling history.

Among the former will be the Norton Owners Club Bristol branch, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Its stand will be decked out to resemble a typical race track start line with a grandstand and ticket office. On the line will be a selection of Manx Nortons.

There’s free parking at the show and dogs on leads are welcome.

Gates are open 10am to 5pm on both days.

Pre-booked one-day tickets cost £10 for adults, £8 for senior citizens and £3 for under 15s. Two-day tickets cost £20, £16 and £6 respectively. Weekend camping costs £20. One-day tickets on the gate will cost £12, £10 and £4.
