Stars lining up for the Newark Bike Bonanza

John McGuinness
Road racing stars, John McGuinness and Conor Cummins will be the premier attractions of a new motorcycling event set to debut this June. Both men will be battling it out in the TT and Classic TT on the Isle of Man this summer.

‘The Morecambe Missile’ and the Manxman will both be in attendance at The Carole Nash Newark Bike Bonanza, giving visitors a chance to get up close to two giants of the racing world.

The presence of McGuinness alone would be treat enough for fans, as the TT veteran and nineteen-time winner will provide a unique insight into his long and successful career, but Cummins makes it even better as in a recent interview with the magazine Island Racer 2013, the promising youngster declared his belief that McGuinness was “beatable”. 

McGuinness and Cummins won’t be the only race aces at the new show; Alex Lowes and Ryuichi Kiyonari, two of British Superbikes’ hottest talents, have been confirmed as the Newark Bike Bonanza’s guests of honour. Lowes will add a local flavour, hailing from nearby Lincoln, while three-time British Champion Kiyonari is always a hit with UK fans.

Other attractions

Thrills and spills will be in plentiful supply too as champion stuntman ‘Mr Showtime’ Steve Colley and Ken Fox’s ‘Wall of Death’ take their place in the line-up.

The Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance will also be on site, along with the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership and the Nottinghamshire Fire service – both promoting road safety.

Have a go!

It's worth checking out the Classic Racer Grand Prix Paddock, the inflatable mini–quad bike track (one for the kids!) and the Get On campaign, where the team will be on location for anybody wanting to have a go on a bike for the first time or re-kindle their passion for riding. There will also be live music lined up to keep you entertained in the evening!

Parking is free for everyone and dogs on leads are welcome!
