Endurance Legends @ Donnnington Park
May 12 – May 13 all-day

endurance Legends

Endurance Legends returns to Donington featuring the UK’s only 4-hour classic endurance race, with additional races from Lansdowne Classic Series and GP Originals, and a number of star guests. 

Hundreds of classic machines are expected to do battle across the weekend in a number of races, before culminating in the four hour grand finale for the second round of the European Endurance Legend Cup on Sunday afternoon. 50 teams are expected to be entered for the race, with multiple riders sharing each machine, meaning that outright speed will need to be matched with exceptional teamwork and strategy in order to take victory.

As well as superb racing action, this unique weekend features parades and track sessions for classic road and race machinery, hundreds of bikes on display around the paddock, racing sidecar taxi rides, ‘try-a-bike’ sessions, and free access to all areas allowing fans to meet the riders, teams and celebrities.

Coventry Motofest
Jun 2 – Jun 3 all-day

MotoFest Coventry 2018

Motofest Coventry is to stage time trialling at this year’s event, giving the go-ahead for the return of competitive motorsport to a UK city centre for the first time in almost 30 years.

At Motofest Coventry on 2 & 3 June 2018, a series of time trial events – which will be drawn from the British Automobile Racing Club’s (BARC) various championship series – will take place on the unique city centre sprint circuit carved out of Coventry’s ring road.

It will be the first time competitive motorsport has been hosted on a UK city centre circuit since the Birmingham Superprix in 1990, after the Motor Sport Association’s (MSA) agreed to issue a licence for the Motofest Coventry 2018 event.

Motofest Coventry has been working closely with the MSA and Coventry City Council to host a competition event since April 2017 when the MSA, and its sister governing body for two-wheel UK motorsport, the Auto-Cycle Union (ACU), were made the authorising bodies for closed road motorsport events.

Driven International, the renowned international circuit designers, has also been working closely with Motofest Coventry to develop the circuit design and infrastructure required to stage time trialling at this year’s event.

The decision also gives the green light to Motofest Coventry to host sprints, time trials and specialist road rally stages as future options at the festival.

James Noble, Motofest Coventry Festival Director, said: “Motofest Coventry is very excited and proud to be at the forefront of bringing competitive motorsport back to UK city centre roads.

“We have made no secret of our desire to host competitive motorsport on the Coventry Ring Road and we are now in a position to make this a reality.

“The Motofest Coventry team would like to thank the MSA, Coventry City Council and the BARC for all their support and assistance in enabling us to bring competitive motorsport to Coventry, the UK’s spiritual home of motoring.

“After Coventry’s recent winning of city of culture status, being the first to host competitive motorsport since the legislation changes is another superb achievement for the city.

“We look forward to putting on a great show filled with the thrills and excitement you would expect of the UK’s largest free urban motorsport festival.”

Motofest Coventry is a two-day festival dedicated to the city’s motoring heritage, which this year takes place on Saturday 2 June and Sunday 3 June.

There will be a range of automotive activities taking place from pop-up and demonstration events to static displays and fringe events at Motofest Coventry, now the largest free urban motorsport festival in the UK.

Bob McIntyre Classic @ East Fortune
Jun 16 @ 10:00 am – Jun 17 @ 4:00 pm

The Bob McIntyre Memorial Classic Races Weekend

16th & 17th June 2018


Following the success of the Club’s first “Bob Mac” weekend last year (Triple Echo 229), members are invited to join us for another weekend of Classic racing and great riding. Arriving at the Glentress Hotel outside Peebles on the afternoon of Friday 15th June, there is time to settle in and have a coffee on the hotel’s terrace before setting off for an early evening ride through the gently twisting Borders roads for a meal. Evenings are long as mid-summer will almost be upon us, so conditions should be favourable. If time allows, we may visit the Leadburn Inn, a well known biker friendly venue.

 On the Saturday, there’s a ride along mostly quiet country roads to the Bob McIntyre Memorial Races at East Fortune, where we’ll see a range of classic bikes and sidecars in action. Several of them are triple-engined and ridden by Club Members. On returning to the hotel that evening there will be time for a beverage before sitting down to a meal in the Hotel restaurant.

 Sunday 17th involves loading up the bikes before setting off to see the vintage and classic bikes and cars taking part in the 57th Jimmy Guthrie Memorial Run, based at Denholm Green. Once the bikes set off we’ll have a short ride to get some lunch before riding to a location which suits members heading home in both a southerly and northerly direction.

 The Glentress Hotel has 7 three bedded rooms costing £30 pppn for bed and full breakfast. Couples can share a room exclusively for £35 pppn. Bookings should be made directly with the hotel, who require full payment at time of booking. Please mention TR3OC. Places at the hotel are limited, so early booking would ensure your stay. There is other accommodation in the area should numbers exceed availability, but not within walking distance.

 If you are joining us for this weekend, please advise Martin Rawson, Events Secretary on, so we know to expect you and have numbers for the meal on the Saturday evening. We also need to know if anyone locally is joining us at any time over the weekend.

 We look forward to seeing you at the event.

Back by popular demand – John McGuinness WILL be at LlanBikeFest 2018!

John McGuinness said: “I had such a good time at LlanBikeFest in 2017 – and I will definitely be there again in August. It’s a weekend of fun and a great family affair.  I feel completely re-charged. Everything feels good – but it’s been a long journey. Hopefully I will be in better shape next year and there is no reason I can’t bring a few more of my bike collection with me and just enjoy it.”

LlanBikeFest is run by a group of North Wales enthusiasts who are mad about bikes of all kinds – on road, off road, racing, touring, classics and custom. If they have two wheels (or three at a pinch), we love ‘em – including scooters! That’s why LlanBikeFest is an ‘International Festival of Motorcycling’. A celebration of biking – not just a show.

Classic TT Week I.O.M. @ Isle of Man
Aug 24 – Aug 27 all-day

The TR3OC will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of our iconic British triples at the 2018 Classic TT Races presented by Bennetts. TR3OC is organising a spectacular display of both road and racing triples together with associated memorabilia.

Tridents are the most successful  production racer ever at the TT winning six consecutive production class races on the island

Visitors to the Isle of Man during the Classic TT will be able to see a comprehensive collection of motorcycles including the rebuilt Slippery Sam, courtesy of the National Motorcycle Museum as well as the first Triumph Trident to be raced around the famous Mountain Course in 1969 – the Hughes Triumph that was ridden by Martin Carney.

A dozen more notable race bikes will also be displayed as well as a selection of artist John Hancox’s pen and ink drawings. John is a Technical Illustrator whose work can be seen every time a Triumph Trident Parts Manual is opened.

Along with the racing legends the display will feature a definitive collection of road bikes. Starting with a 1969 Aquamarine T150 together with UK and US examples of various bikes, including Hurricane, Rocket 3’s T150V’s and T160’s.

The Trident model that completed a 24 hour sponsored ride around the TT Course for the Manx Grand Prix Helicopter Fund and will again be raising funds for this great  cause at the display with the obligatory collecting buckets. In addition a replica Travelling Marshal’s Trident and the original marshals bike that was ridden by Travelling Marshal, Des Evans will be displayed for visitors. The Martin Russell Parallelogram will also be on display.

There will be a closed road parade around the TT Course on Saturday 25th August with many of the display bikes taking part. The lap will see Des Evans reunited with his Travelling Marshal’s Trident for a lap of 37 ¾ miles, while Ian Martin, TT star Guy’s father, will be riding his BSA Rocket 3.

On the morning of Sunday 26th August, the display will temporarily de-camp to Jurby Motodrome where the Vintage Motorcycle Club’s Isle of Man section host their annual Festival of Jurby event. Visitors will have the opportunity to see the world’s greatest display of Vintage and Classic motorcycles – not only on their paddock stands but also spreading the instantly recognisable aroma of Castrol R on the Jurby racetrack.

Commenting on the anniversary  Ian Bradshaw TR3OC Area Rep for the Isle of Man, said:

“None of the above would have been possible had it not been for the input of the Isle of Man Government, Department for Enterprise’s Motorsport Team and the Isle of Man’s Vintage Motorcycle Club Section as well as and importantly everyone who has allowed their bikes and memorabilia to be displayed.  I hope everyone interested in motorcycles takes the opportunity to enjoy what is the display of a lifetime.”
