The Motorex historic fire-up paddock is shaping up to be one of the star attractions of the event with over 30 machines from the golden era of bike racing on display in the paddock. Together with the Brackley Festival of Motorcycling, MCN is gathering together some of the seminal machines of the 1960’s. Already booked are rare Bianchi and Benelli 500’s plus a one-off British built machine designed to take on the four cylinder Italian machines of the time, a 1964 Marsh MR4.The hand built Marsh now belongs to the National Motorcycle Museum and museum director James Hewing describes the noise the Marsh makes as a “glorious racket!”.
