A favourite highlight of the day and one of the reasons that the Festival is so special – an opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the very best in motorcycle engineering excellence and watch them fire up and take to the hill. No static displays for us – 95 % of our entry list actually Run the Hill. Rare Vintage, Classic, Modern, Special Build, Custom, Factory Race Bikes, Monowheels, Jet Powered and more.
Here’s the kind of thing you can expect to see on display, in the Paddock, throughout the day.
Paddock Specials are, well – special. We invite around 100 entries and we’re heavily over-subscribed; the selection committee have a tough job choosing the entries. All Paddock Special entries attend as our guests, we even include hospitality so making it on the list is indeed a privilege and an honour!
Our Paddock Specials entry is now closed. We’re delighted to be welcoming back some old friends and quite a few new ones to our pretty stunning 2017 entry. We’ll be publishing the full Entry List to our Facebook page soon.
There’s another chance to shine though – we select around 20 motorcycles from our Run the Hill entry list and give them a prime Paddock position. Great opportunity for the public to see your pride and joy. You can’t ask to be in this group, it all depends on the entry list that year.
