London’s largest motorcycling event, the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show, roars back into the capital February 14-16 to celebrate all things two wheeled.
Alongside the latest machines from the world’s leading manufacturers, visitors will be able to see explosive live action racing, rare classic machines, biking celebs and a UK-exclusive celebration of iconic racer Barry Sheene. Discounted tickets for the action-packed weekend, including VIP Paddock Passes, are on sale now.
Manufacturers AJS, BMW, CCM, CF Moto, Ducati, ECOOTER, Honda, Husqvarna, Indian, Kawasaki, KTM, Mutt Motorcycles, MV Agusta, Royal Enfield, Suzuki, Triumph, Yamaha and Zero will be bringing the latest 2020 machines to show off, making the event the biggest collection of new metal in London.
It is not just new machines on display though, as the 2020 Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show will be celebrating Britain’s most famous motorcycle racer, Barry Sheene. In a UK exclusive, nine of his legendary race machines (including his two title winning bikes) are being flown in from Australia where they will be showcased and Sheene’s teammate Steve Parrish and Suzuki chief technician during Sheene’s winning years will be onstage sharing incredible insight and anecdotes.
Race fans will be kept enthralled with a completely revamped Michelin Thunderdrome live action event once again taking over the centre of the show. The free races will see the world’s fastest road racer, Peter Hickman, going head-to-head with fellow Isle of Man TT competitors John McGuinness, Michael Rutterand James Hillier. Guests can upgrade their visit by purchasing a VIP paddock pass, which alongside giving entry to the whole show also allows them access to the racing stars and an unbeatable view of the action.
Alongside that, the Classic TT will officially be launched at the 2020 Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show, whilst in between races John McGuinness will be found propping up the bar at his own pub! The 23 time Isle of Man TT winner will be pulling pints and sharing tales from his incredible career with punters throughout the weekend.
Following recent news that a staggering 41% of all British riders are wearing helmets that are over five years old and now well beyond the manufacturer’s service life, MCN has launched a UK Helmet Amnesty. Everyone who brings their old helmet to the London show will receive a free gift and the opportunity to purchase a new helmet at a bargain price. Visitors wanting to take part should sign up beforehand at helmetamnesty.com.
Elsewhere, motorcyclists looking to escape on an adventure will find plenty of inspiration in the Adventure Zone and Bonhams will be bringing rare and exotic machines from the legendary Giancarlo Morbidelli collection. Not only that, the National Motorcycle Museum will be breaking open the archives and bringing a host of exotic machines to the show.
Tickets for the three-day extravaganza are on sale now at a special early bird price of £18 per person when purchased online in advance. Children 15 and under go for free and the show offers free parking for those visitors arriving by bike. More show information can be found at www.mcnmotorcycleshow.com.
