Standing next to a MotoGP machine as it fires up is one of the most memorable experiences a motorcyclist can have. We’ve teamed up with the Brackley Festival of Motorcycling to pull together a collection of the UK’s finest race machinery.

Over 25 historic race bikes will spark into life including machines from TT, BSB, WSS and Grand Prix paddocks. Highlights include race bikes from the sixties such as a 1969 500cc four cylinder Benelli to a 2001 Yamaha M1 MotoGP machine. The Freddie Spencer fire-up paddock will spark into life three times a day and Fast Freddie himself will be on stage to introduce some of the bikes and talk about his glittering career.
