Chris Thompson's Yamaha RD350 won Best In Show

After much deliberation and midnight oil burning our independent judging team at the Carole Nash Newark Bike Bonanza has come up with a winners list. Awards will be presented to the lucky winners on the main stage at 4pm by guest of honour John McGuinness...

Congratulations to all motorcycle exhibitors, as the standards, once again, were extremely high. Below is our winners list. If you're attending the prize giving at 4pm, come early as we're expecting a large crowd to meet and welcome TT ace John McGuinness!
