VMCC Festival of 1000 Bikes 2018
The Ultimate Classic Track Weekend
Saturday 7th July 2018 - Sunday 8th July 2018
Thank you to everyone who attended the Festival of 1000 Bikes last weekend. We hope you had a wonderful time!
We would also like to say a massive thank you to all of the volunteers who gave up their weekends in the scorching heat to help us at Mallory Park. Without you wonderful people the Festival of 1000 Bikes wouldn't be possible.
The Festival of 1000 Bikes weekend offers every lover of old motorcycles the opportunity to participate at some level. And if not participating, there is something to appeal to the broadest range of ‘classic tastes’. That’s why the VMCC Festival of 1000 Bikes is supported by some of the biggest names in the old bike movement including Footman James Insurance Brokers, Bonhams Auctioneers, Mortons Motorcycle Media, The National Motorcycle Museum, Norton Motorcycles, and Ducati UK.
The VMCC Festival of 1000 Bikes gives you a unique opportunity to ride the original Mallory Park Circuit without the later additions such as the chicanes.

We all had a great time at Mallory on the track both days even if it meant keep donning the leathers and helmets in the heat. Would you pass on my thanks to all those involved in the organisation and giving up their weekend.
I have just returned from the festival of 1000 bikes and I must say what a fantastic event it was. To organize an event like that must be a monumental task. All the volunteers were so helpful and professional. I was riding my road bike on Saturday and by race bike on Sunday. I had an issue of my own making but they sorted me out with no problem. So a big thank you to all the VMCC volunteers for all their hard work.
Just thought I would drop you a quick line to say great show, as I was walking about everyone (trade and visitors) seemed to be very happy, sometimes people are too quick to complain about things but never praise when everything goes well. Anyway I really enjoyed it, it’s the first time I have been and didn’t know what really to expect, and I was pleased that I went.
Congratulations to the club, the army of VMCC volunteers, and to you, for a fantastic weekend at the Festival of 1000 Bikes 2009. As someone privileged to be riding in the Past Masters Parade I would congratulate you on the slick way they were handled too, and the way we were looked after. As I think you know I get to ride in similar events across Europe and I think they now have to look to their laurels. And as someone who loves all forms of motorcycling the weekend as a whole was a veritable feast.
