Modern classics: Off-road stars at Classic Off Road Show

Published: 16 February 2010

The Classic Off Road and Road Racing Show took place at the Telford International Centre this weekend, showcasing hundreds of bikes from the 30s to the 90s, including a number of famous factory machines in their original condition.

Some great names from the years were also present, including 1981 250cc world motocross champion Neil Hudson, 1979 500cc world champion Graham Noyce, and trials legend Mick Andrews. 

The venue’s three spacious halls housed a number of vans, motor homes and even a double-decker bus packed with historic off road bikes, parts, and the tools needed to keep them racing for years to come.

The classic off road world’s very own dedicated show is further proof that the scene in the UK is continuing to grow, with ever more riders switching on to the laid back atmosphere of classic and twin-shock events.
