About the Bike Show…

A kick-start to the new classic motorcycling year, the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic takes place on January 5-6 at Newark Showground. It offers a welcome respite from the hectic holiday season and a chance to get lost exploring the hundreds of stunning classic machines on display.

With a good mix of traders, dealers and autojumble plots, it’s the perfect place to grab a box of parts and spares, as well as finding that inspiration needed to finish your restoration for a summer of riding… or perhaps pick up a new project.


About Scooter World…

It’s not just classic motorcycles that will be celebrated at the Winter Classic, with the popular Scooter World hall making a welcome return! Local scooter clubs, private entries and traders will be in attendance, filling the two extra halls to create a scooterist’s idea of heaven! The 2018 event saw our biggest and best Scooter World yet, and we’re currently making plans for an even bigger and better experience for 2019’s show! Watch this space…


About the autojumble…

Not to be confused with the monthly ‘Normous Newark Autojumbles we also run at the showground,

the autojumble at the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic is drip-fed throughout the site,

with stalls inside the main hall, outside and in the additional halls too. Hundreds of traders pitch up

at the show with a vast range of autojumble for visitors to browse through as soon as they walk

through the gates.



Trade stands at the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic are both varied

and plentiful! Hundreds of traders are in attendance, selling anything from leather

jackets to vintage machine manuals. Make sure that you go round all the halls on-site,

because you never know what you’ll find around the corner! It’s the perfect way to

spend the rest of the Christmas cash!


Club Stands…

Both classic bike and scooter clubs are regarded as the jewel in the crown at this event. Keeping the heart of the scene beating through their work-hard, play-hard approach, the owners’ clubs take pride of place wherever they pitch up! They help make the show what it is with their phenomenal collections of incredible machines, not to mention their love for classic bikes and scooters! Cash prizes are up for grabs for the best three club stands that go out of their way to put on a good display – who will be the top three in 2019? You’ll have to stay for the awards ceremony at 4pm on Sunday to find out!

Guest of Honour…

Confirmed for 2019’s show – “Fast” Freddie Spencer!

After a hugely successful career in his native USA – the 1978 AMA 250cc Championship being his first big series win – Freddie got his first taste of international racing as part of the USA team in the 1980 Transatlantic Trophy Match Races, winning two races at Brands Hatch and beating World Champions Kenny Roberts and Barry Sheene in the process.

By 1982 Freddie was a full-time Honda Grand Prix rider and in just one year in Europe he won his first 500cc World Championship, giving him the distinction of being the youngest rider ever to secure the title – aged just 21.

The following year saw a battle royal between fellow American Kenny Roberts and Spencer with the latter snatching the title by just two points. However, it was the 1985 season that truly cemented Freddie’s name in the history books when he did the unthinkable and won both the 250cc and 500cc titles, becoming the only rider in Grand Prix history to pull off such a feat.

Freddie will be interviewed live on stage by Steve Plater, and will be available for autographs and photos throughout the weekend.

In the past we have had some seriously big names at the show, including John McGuinness, Alex Lowes, Michael Rutter, Jamie Whitham, Roger Marshall, John Reynolds and the Birchall Brothers!

All the above have been interviewed by our resident compere and local racing star, Steve Plater. You can expect live talks on the Main Stage, autograph opportunities and the chance to get a photo with the star of the show too!
