Fabulous Foxhill • From its glory days as a GP circuit to a popular and exciting amateur track, Foxhill near Swindon has enjoyed a roller-coaster ride… pretty much like anyone racing there.

The Baa – modern • Hot on the wheels of the Baa Classic is the modern riders’ version… there were some classics too.
Mechanically speaking • Twice a year the Staffordshire County Showground resonates to the sound of old motorcycles. October heralds the Classic Motorcycle Mechanics era.
