Sounds great! Does it matter if we are there late on Friday/crack of dawn on Saturday morning?

Cheers

I should be there by 2 again to help set up.

Was a great weekend last year and hoping to stay for a beer this year.

This may be a silly question, but for the parade on the track do we need to have full leathers?

We will be there on Saturday morning, do we need to be on stand by a certain time? Dad may be bringing the KH500 as well if that is ok?

Full leathers are not required , textiles are fine. You do need to be a fully paid member of the VJMC to do the Saturday parade . Bikes need to be on club stand before the gates open to the public which is normally 9.00am

The KH will be a bit out of place on RD Aircooled Stand  :o

Good point - I think we will be only bringing the TA now anyway ;)

Sadly I can no longer make it to Donnington,  :-\ :'( :(

It’s just not possible this year now, shame as it would have been the first proper outing for the TA125. Anyway some more prep needed on the bike so will definitely be ready for next year.

I hope that it is a great show as usual, have a good one guys!

I have sent you a PM RSVR.

Latest up date from VJMC, it's going to be a good one

Some updates on the Classic Clubs show for 2017.
The show which is part of the Donington Classic motorcycle festival will be on the 5th and 6th of August 2017.
We have finally outgrown the exhibition hall at Donington Park.
This year’s show will be on the iconic Melbourne loop part of the circuit, much closer to the pits, and will be a more integral part of the weekend.
We will have the whole of the Melbourne loop which is a much bigger and almost no restriction on club stand sizes.
We will have grass and tarmac in the show area.
The public will now walk past and through the show area to see the racing.
All the show activity will remain the same, club stand prizes, the exhibitor’s parade will again be on Sunday lunchtime, the times the show will be open to the public will remain the same.
Exhibitor only camping will be on the Melbourne loop, so you can enjoy a beer in the evening next to your stand.
There will be a free exhibitors BBQ on Saturday evening provided by the VJMC.
There will also be a group on Saturday evening in the pit area.
The show area will be secured so that no public can gain entry after the show has closed.
Entry to the circuit for exhibitors will be through a separate gate.
Wristbands will be provided for riders and pillions.
There will be more trade stands than previous years.
Guest riders will again make an appearance at the show and join the exhibitor’s parade.
The VJMC will provide a large Marquee for prize giving ETC.
This will be a social weekend for exhibitors with little need to leave the circuit.
More information is available on the Donington Park website.
Please let me know if you would like to book a stand this year, and I will send out the booking form.
We look forward to your continued support.
Regards
Andy Greenwood
VJMC


Morning Guys

Not long now to the Donnington Classic, we have a good mix of bikes for this years event so Thanks to all those who have put thier names forward. If anyone else would like to attend then just let me know. I have all the clubs gazebos with side covers so many hands make for lighter and quicker set up and put away.

I plan to be there by 2.00pm on the Friday, I already have the passes which allows two people entrance with one motorcycle . Admission times are follows Friday 4th Aug 1.00pm - 7.00pm. Saturday 8.00am -10.00pm.
Plan for Friday is set up stand , try and get all together for camping , BBQ on Saturday night with Big Russ and have a merry time lol.

Saturday parade laps is just for VJMC members, sensible riding gear , just in case bring drivers licence , mot, insurance, Sunday parade laps is for anyone who has shown thier bikes over the weekend. Piped limit is 60 mph but stop at the back of pack and it's more fun. No wheelies else you black flagged.

Any questions then just drop me a line. Tony
