Yamaha have confirmed that they’re bringing a huge sixteen bike test fleet to this year’s Carole Nash MCN Festival on May 13-14 including the R6, R1M, SCR950 and blistering MT-10SP!

All sixteen bikes will be available to test ride on both days with escorted rides through the glorious Cambridgeshire countryside, a route that will include a mix of fast A-roads and twisty back lanes, perfect for all types of bikes and riders.

Booking a test ride couldn’t be easier, just go to the Yamaha stand with your riding kit and appropriate licence on the day. There will be over 100 test ride bikes at the Festival so if you want to pack in more than a few rides it makes sense to bring your tent…



Make a weekend of it

Camping is a great way to experience all that the Festival has to offer. Not only can campers watch a full Championship Speedway round for free on Saturday night* but they also gain early access into the show, giving them the opportunity to be the first to sign up for test rides. Plus campers get access to the retail zone to bag an early bargain.

There’s also some great evening entertainment for those who stay all weekend – Yamaha will be hosting the MT Dark Side Party on both Friday and Saturday evening with plenty of live music to get the party in full swing.

Advance day tickets and camping packages are now on sale, with discounted day tickets at £15 online, seniors (over 65) £11 and camping starts at £30 per person. Children go free.

*Day ticket-holders can watch the Championship Speedway round (Peterborough Panthers v Newcastle Diamonds) but will need to buy an additional £16 ticket on the gate
