Classic line-up at MCN Festival

Published: 24 April 2015

Star bikes from the past 60 years for you to see, hear and smell, May 16-17th

This May’s first MCN Festival coincides with Motorcycle News’ 60th birthday, and to celebrate this momentous occasion we’ve put together a tribute to the most amazing machines from the past six decades. With the help of the Brackley Festival of Motorcycling we’ve put together an incredible race paddock and you’ll see ALL these bikes (and more) fired up and ridden in the Classic Race Bike parade.

The parade is just one of the many exciting features you can see at the MCN Festival at the Peterborough Arena on May 16-17. You also can test ride a range of 2015 machines from major manufacturers, try your hand at off-road riding, watch a full round of the DTRA dirt track racing and even see Schwantz and his team take on the UK in the new Transatlantic Trophy flat track races!
