What's it all about...

A kick-start to the new classic motorcycling year, the Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic takes place at Newark Showground. It offers a welcome respite from the hectic holiday season and a chance to get lost exploring the hundreds of stunning classic machines on display. With a good mix of traders, dealers and autojumble plots, it's the perfect place to grab a box of parts and spares, as well as finding that inspiration needed to finish your restoration for a summer of riding... or perhaps pick up a new project.

About Scooter World...

It's not just classic motorcycles that will be celebrated at the Winter Classic, with the popular Scooter World hall making a welcome return! Local scooter clubs, private entries and traders will be in attendance, filling the two extra halls to create a scooterist's idea of heaven! The 2020 event saw our biggest and best Scooter World yet, and we're making plans for an even bigger and better experience at the next show! Watch this space…

About the Autojumble...

Not to be confused with the monthly 'Normous Newark Autojumbles we also run at the showground, the autojumble at the Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic is drip-fed throughout the site, with stalls inside the main hall, outside and in the additional halls too. Hundreds of traders pitch up at the show with a vast range of autojumble for visitors to browse through as soon as they walk through the gates.


Trade stands at the Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic are both varied and plentiful! Hundreds of traders are in attendance, selling anything from leather jackets to vintage machine manuals. Make sure that you go round all the halls on-site, because you never know what you'll find around the corner! It's the perfect way to spend the rest of the Christmas cash!

Club Stands...

Both classic bike and scooter clubs are regarded as the jewel in the crown at this event. Keeping the heart of the scene beating through their work-hard, play-hard approach, the owners' clubs take pride of place wherever they pitch up! They help make the show what it is with their phenomenal collections of incredible machines, not to mention their love for classic bikes and scooters! Cash prizes are up for grabs for the best three club stands that go out of their way to put on a good display – who will be the top three next time? You'll have to stay for the awards ceremony at 4pm on Sunday to find out!

Private Entries...

Established as the season-opener for both classic bike and scooter enthusiasts, The Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic is THE place to immerse yourself in your favourite hobby! The question is would you like to take part? Why not display your pride and joy at the show, be it an utterly original BSA or fully restored Honda? We're looking for the best classic bikes the UK has to offer to go into our private entry display. All private entry display owners receive two free wristbands to get into the show on both days, plus a vehicle pass. All displays are automatically entered into the awards too – so you could end up with a brand-new trophy to take home with you!

Guests of Honour...

Two of British motorcycling’s biggest beasts, including a king of the jungle, are set to entertain the fans at the first major classic bike event of 2023.

Carl Fogarty and James Whitham will take centre stage at the Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic over the weekend of January 7/8 at Newark Showground, and with each man never shy to say what they think, there will be plenty of opinions, memories and racing insights of both modern day and ‘back in the day’ racing.

Blackburn’s Fogarty - four-time World Superbike Champ, multiple TT Champ, lap record holder, Endurance World Champion, Grand Prix campaigner and also winner of the 14th series of TV show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of here! - is well known for his straight-talking style.

And it'll be a battle of the roses as Huddersfield’s James Whitham is another man well known for sharing his views. The TV commentator was very much a fans’ favourite on track, winner of multiple British championships, from 80cc up to superbikes. He was twice voted MCN’s Man of the Year in the 1990s.

Keeping order, but adding his own opinions too, will be will be Steve Plater, himself a multiple winner at events including the North West 200, British Superbikes, Supersport, a Senior TT winner and undefeated at the Macau Grand Prix with victories in 2006 and 2007. A presenter on ITV4, he is also team manager of the TAS Racing-run Synetiq BMW Motorrad squad.

It’s a weekend not to be missed, and you can join these three champions across the weekend talking all things bikes.
