If 2018 is as good as the first event of the year – the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic – then we look set for an amazing 12 months.

There was something for everyone over two action-packed days at Newark Showground. In fact, it was the perfect way to get over Christmas and start the New Year with a bang.

It’s rare to get so many classics in one place and the crowds certainly enjoyed browsing everything from the autojumble stands through to the magnificent show bikes and vintage Lambrettas.

For older visitors, it was a real trip down Memory Lane. And for the youngsters in attendance, the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic offered a superb insight into the bikes of the past.


Spectacular sights at the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic 2018

Several bike owners left Newark with well-deserved awards after completing stunning restoration work on their prized beauties.

Ken Thirtle’s 1928 175cc Terrot Type L and Dave Wells’s 1932 350cc Velocette KTT were just two of those to catch the eye – and there were plenty more spread across 48 fabulous hours.

As ever, the autojumble offered visitors the perfect chance to get the missing part for their own restoration project, while traders and dealers displayed their wares to thousands of attendees keen to get their latest piece of biking kit.
