There won’t only be a feast of Ducatis at the concours, but many other bikes, both in the show and in the car park.
Among the highlight bikes this year will be a Scorch Laverda custom race bike featured on their poster and a Martini Yamaha XS1100.
There will also be a dyno, food vendors, motorcycle club stalls and trade stalls.
Bryan says there is plenty of interest from cafe racer motorcycle builders/modifiers for trade displays this year.
