CLASSIC BIKES SET TO SHINE THIS SUMMER BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND - 26 Aug 2016

The CRMC comes to Snetterton this bank holiday weekend (Saturday 27 - Sunday 28 August) for their penultimate event of the season. There will be an eclectic range of machinery in action over the two days with over 40 races featuring packed grids of classic bikes and sidecars set to take part.

CRMC caters predominantly for machines of all capacities from the late 1950s to the mid-1980s, including both European and Japanese marques.

One of the highlights this weekend will be the classic sidecars swarming round the Norfolk circuit. Sidecar racing requires sublime skill, concentration and commitment. The rider and passenger combine together to balance and drive these machines in spectacular style and their popularity with spectators is as strong as ever.

There will be a wide variety of classic two-wheeled machinery in action varying from retro Grand Prix motorcycles, to Post-Classic Superbikes, and old-school production and sports bikes, a mixture which celebrates the history of both short track and TT-style road racing. 

Expect some close, hard fought racing on the Snetterton 200 circuit that includes some mighty quick straights that have given it a reputation for one of the fastest circuits in the country. Whilst the Bentley straight may push machines to the limit, the riders will have some challenging corners to deal with. Getting the approach right to the deceptive riches will be crucial to getting the lap of to a good start before they head to the newly named Wilson corner, a tricky section before they go full throttle.

It should prove a fascinating weekend with no margin for errors as some riders look to wrap up their championship titles early ahead of the final round at Silverstone, with others equally determined to stay in contention in their respective classes.

A packed programme of racing is a must for fans of classic bikes and the machinery can be seen close up in the paddock as well as around the track.
