Lincolnshire’s Cadwell Park will host a new International Classic event in July, with Grand Prix legend Giacomo Agostini set to headline a whole host of stars who are set to attend the two day celebration.
Following on from the highly successful 80th anniversary celebrations in 2014, the two day event, on the 25th and 26th July, will feature racing, parades, and off track entertainment. Some of the stars already confirmed for the event alongside Agostini include Phil Read, John Cooper, Jim Redman, Derek Chatterton, Alex George, Mick Grant, and more.
The Charlie’s Trophy (pre-1990 Grand Prix 2-strokes, from 175cc to 750cc), the revived Tommy Wood Trophy (pre-1992 superbikes, from 400cc to 1100cc), and the Classic King of Cadwell (pre-1972 machinery, from 251cc to 750cc). Also on the bill are International Classic Grand Prix and Superbike races: the International Historic Racing Organisation for 1945-72 single-cylinder Grand Prix machinery, Landsdowne Classic Series for pre-1963 machines, and the Camathias Cup for classic sidecars.
Off-track entertainment will include historic vehicle and classic bike displays from collectors and owners’ clubs, motorcycle trial demonstrations, question and answer sessions with guest stars, live music, air displays, and plenty of purchasing opportunities at trade stands.
Jonathan Palmer, Chief Executive of circuit owner MSV, said: “Last year’s 80th Anniversary Meeting at Cadwell Park met with a hugely enthusiastic response, which proved just how popular classic bike racing at Cadwell Park is. I decided to build on this and create the best historic motorcycle event in the country for 2015. I am thrilled that an amazing cast of bike racing legends have jumped at the chance to be involved and absolutely delighted that one of my childhood heroes, Giacomo Agostini, has accepted my invitation to head our list of stars.”
