Conditions were less than ideal with early rain at EGP Enterprises' Southern Classic Show, although most of the exhibitors remained dry in the show area, comfortably accomodated on the ground floor of the huge grandstand at the Surrey race course...
Southern Classic Show, Kempton Park

The New Imperial Owners Association received a prize for its club stand. Centrepiece was the 125cc Brooklands racer of Harry Nash

Special guest was Phil Read and he and ex-racer Dave Degens presented the prizes. Selecting the best among such a high standard was a tough job. Colin Martin's period correct BSA Rocket Gold Star ticked sufficient boxes, as did Gary Page's Triton among a gleaming line of cafe racers.

There was plenty of interest among the 'Highly Commended' bikes that went from the drab, but correct, khaki of P. Fryer's WD Triumph, via Mr. Brady's Velocette KSS to the Bracebridge Street black and silver of H. Ward's Model 18 Norton, M. Potter's Manx and John Crudgington's special. The last was arguably the most techincally interesting of the show. A V-8 engine had been created by combining two Reliant engines and persuading the ensemble into modified Norton cycle parts. The bike awaits the last details and a dyno test.

With a number of clubs supporting the show, the competition for best club stand was also close, with the miltary theme of the West Thames Ariel Owners just pipped by the New Imperial Owners.
