This year sees the long-awaited re-launch of the VMCC’s Festival of 1000 Bikes at Mallory Park on July 7/8 and although 75% of available entries have already sold, there is still time to be part of the action.

As in past festival years the event gives enthusiasts the opportunity to ride their own machines in multiple track sessions over the weekend.

Catering for all classes of machines from the earliest veterans through to the machines of the superbike era, this is a truly inclusive event that reflects the wide range of interests within the VMCC.

With lesser noise restrictions on Sunday the festival will again allow riders to display their racing machinery in special track sessions running throughout the day. It was generally recognised that the VMCC Festival event had the best line up of ‘past masters’ and famous machines assembled in the UK for many years. With assistance from Stuart Hicken of Mallory Park, the Sammy Miller Museum and the National Motorcycle Museum, there will be some great riders and superb machines to mingle with throughout the weekend. 

From the Sammy Miller Museum there will be the 498cc eight-cylinder Moto Guzzi V8 and the Gilera 500cc four.
