If you’ve always wanted to climb aboard a Vintage motorcycle but never known how, then this year’s Banbury Run weekend is where you need to be...

The VMCCs famous Vintage Training Day is now part of the Banbury weekend and Saturday, June 15 will see the Motor Heritage Centre become the venue for a single and expanded Vintage Training Day, replacing the two VMCC training days held in previous years.

In conjunction with auction partner Bonhams, this gives ‘Vintage virgins’ the chance to learn to ride hand change and girder fork machines under supervision from their owners. Entry is £40 and should give the chance to ride at least 10 prewar machines. Entries close April 30.

This can only happen through the generosity of VMCC  members lending both their machines and time. Please contact Sam Brown on  01283 540557 email for an entry form or if you can bring a prewar/hand change/girder fork machine.
