Former racer and tv pundit Steve Plater interviewed race stars Conor Cummins, Alex Lowes and team boss Jack Valentine at the Cedric Ford Pavillion. The venue was packed. This ran to approximately 19.30 when the trial charity auction was held, compered by entertaining duo Dave Craggs and Steve Plater. Treasured helmets and T-shirts were donated by the stars to tempt bidders to dig deep into their pockets.

Later in the evening live band The Limit took over centre stage and played until midnight.
