Lincs. Italian Motorcycle Festival, Saturday 15th June.

Postby C Jessop » 01 Jan 2019 17:15

We would like to invite Moto Morini enthusiasts to the Lincolnshire Italian Motorcycle Festival on Saturday 15th June. It will be the 16th edition of what has become one of the largest annual gatherings of Italian motorcycles in the UK. Event website: http://www.imf2018.co.uk

The event takes place at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre (LAHC), East Kirkby. Their website: http://www.lincsaviation.co.uk

We’re now taking bookings for trade displays/stands. There’s no set charge for traders, the Aviation Centre just asks for a donation. Club displays/stands are free. If you would like to book space, please let us know before the end of February.

Admission charge is £8.00 per adult for those arriving on two-wheels. The event raises money for the Papworth Hospital Cystic Fibrosis Unit.

Following the growing success of this event, LAHC have asked us to hold it on a day that doesn’t clash with any of their other events. For 2019 we now have the entire Aviation Centre at our disposal.

Sammy Miller MBE is the Guest of Honour. Together with his race mechanic, John Ring, Sammy will display and demonstrate his Gilera 500cc 4-cyl and Moto Guzzi 500cc V8 Grand Prix machines. There will also be a selection of rare Italian racing motorcycles on display.

All makes of motorcycle are welcome to attend the event.

Chris and Jane Jessop.

Thanks Chris: definitely one for the diary. I wonder if the Guzzi V8 will be louder than Just Jane?

Hmm, clashes with Gurston Down hill climb. I may not get a ride there though, as I haven't been for a while and the Forgotten Error, whilst hopefully quicker than last year, is never going to get near the 350cc class record as I never managed to get under 40 seconds even on the Mk1 Morini hill climber 40 years ago.

I might look at overnighting somewhere with the camper and trailer and take the Gilera 175 to turn up on.

That sounds an event not to be missed. Sadly it looks to be a date when I will be away... :(

Right next door to the Aviation Centre is the East Kirkby Hideaway caravan and camping park: https://eastkirkbyhideaway.webs.com/ A lot of people use this facility for the event.

One of the main themes of this year’s event is the unique opportunity for individual riders and groups to obtain photos of their motorcycles with LAHC’s iconic Avro Lancaster ‘Just Jane’.

There are two lengthy periods during the event when riders can take their own pictures in an unrushed and relaxed manner. For that truly memorable picture we’ve arranged for professional photographer, Alan Markham to be on site all day. Alan will have a stand in the main hanger where you can arrange for him to take pictures of your motorcycle(s) with the Lancaster. Photos in mounts are £20.00 each. Alan’s website: www.akmphoto.co.uk

Provisional timetable:

10.00am: Event start

10.00am to 12.00: Photo opportunity for motorcycles with Avro Lancaster ‘Just Jane’

12.30pm to 1.45pm: Avro Lancaster ‘Just Jane’ engine run up followed by Sammy Miller’s Moto Guzzi 500cc V8 and Gilera 500cc 4-cylinder Grand Prix machines demonstration. Plus, others TBC.

2.00pm to 4.30pm: Photo opportunity for motorcycles with Avro Lancaster ‘Just Jane’

5.00pm: Event finish
