The waiting is over and the judges’ votes are in; award winners have now been announced at the 34th Carole Nash Bristol Classic MotorCycle Show and the standard this year has been exceptional...
With several hundred machines on display as private entries or on club stands, picking winners has proved a difficult task.
James Robinson, editor of The Classic MotorCycle magazine has spoken about the fantastic selection of classics in attendance: “There are some lovely machines, many of which are freshly restored.
“Gaby Hunt’s Sans Soupage has been chosen as best in show – and it really is a showstopper. Gaby only finished restoring it on the Friday before the event, too.”
The unusual machine, a Sans Soupage Emmags 50 to give it its full name, was built in Paris in 1929.
The engine is a Swiss-built MAG while the frame is of unusual pressed-steel construction.
It was bought by its previous owner at a Beaulieu autojumble in the late 1960s and came to Gaby in largely complete form.
It was displayed on the Wessex Veteran and Vintage Section of the VMCC, a club section which was only formed three years ago.
