One of the biggest collections of classic and historic race bikes will descend on the Festival this year for the NEW Motorex fire-up paddock. Together with the Brackley Festival of Motorcycling, MCN are gathering some stunning latin machines and many of the bikes will be fired-up during the event.

Highlights include a 1974 MV Agusta 500cc four ridden by eight time world champion Phil Read, a 1973 MV 500cc triple, a 1969 Benelli 500cc four and a 1996 Ducati 916 BSB machine once campaigned by Terry Rymer. There will be over 50 bikes on display in the fire-up paddock, many of them fired-up during the two day event.
