The 2014 calendar is well underway for fans of the older models with turnstiles now open at the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic.

Taking place across the weekend at Newark Showground, the event is open until 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday and promises to provide a perfect winter warmer with a veritable feast of classic motorcycling action.

1980s race ace and 12 time British champ Roger Marshall is the star attraction, with the guest of honour taking part in Q&A sessions throughout the day on stage in the main hall with guest compere Steve Plater.

As a former factory Honda and Suzuki rider, as well as a TT runner up, Marshall will have plenty of fascinating stories up his sleeve.

There’s trade stands, autojumbles and plenty of classic machines, including ‘Blast from the past’ firing up sessions, and don’t forget to check out Scooter World – a dedicated area showcasing many of the UK’s major scooter clubs and individual private entries.
