Early Stafford news

The Carole Nash International Classic MotorCycle Show, to be held over April 25/26, at Stafford showground, celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

2020 also marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day, so something of a 1940s theme will be instigated, with several historic machines from the period – including the Norton bought brand-new by then movie star George Formby, with Formby impersonator Graeme Hardy (see below), expected to be there.

Additionally, there’ll be a couple of aeroplanes too, in the form of a full-size Spitfire and Hurricane, while clubs are being asked to embrace the theme, with dressing up in period garb encouraged, not just by the clubs, but by people attending.

To add to the outdoor appeal, a Merlin aircraft engine will join the usual motorcycles in the start-up area.

Details are still being confirmed, but it all looks to be adding up to quite some event.



Of course there’ll be all the usual attractions, too, with a gargantuan in- and outdoor jumble, while among the star guests expected are Stuart Graham, who not only was a top level racer himself in the 1960s, riding works Hondas and Suzukis, but is also the son of Les Graham, the inaugural (1949) 500cc world champion – Graham senior earlier having served as a bomber pilot during the Second World War.

It’s hoped there’ll be an AJS Porcupine at the show too, of the type used by Les Graham in his successful title year.

As show time nears, there’ll be more exciting news emerging.

I sure wish Rob and Team Obsolete would get over their differences and get back into racing in the US with AHRMA which has become the far and away biggest and most diverse US vintage roadracing organization...
