Isle of Man TT legend John McGuinness will headline the Mallory Bike Bonanza, which returns for a second year over the weekend of 10-11-12 July with the promise of even more action, fun and personalities at the Leicestershire circuit.

McGuinness will be showcasing his own very exclusive collection of motorcycles as he takes to the track, and in between times he will be talking bikes to the spectators in this special event which will also see the local racing hero Ray Stringer reliving one of his greatest triumphs, the victory in the 1991 TransAtlantic Challenge match races.



Spectators can also expect to see racing legends Steve Parrish, Alex George, Rex Butcher, John Cooper, Colin Seeley, Paul Smart, Ryuichi Kiyonari and Chas Mortimer amongst the stars in and around the paddock over the weekend with many more big name guest names still to be announced.

This year’s event features an exciting addition with the running of two International Classic Grand Prix feature races on the Sunday.  Established in 1999 by former French Grand Prix racer Eric Saul, the ICGP is a classic motorcycle championship featuring 250cc-350cc Grand Prix machines from 1970s-1980s era.  Riders who will be chasing victories include Bernard Fau, Ian Simpson, Guy Bertin and William Gougy.



Around those top races, the Mallory Bike Bonanza will have plenty more track action with  road bike parades on Saturday and race bike parades on Sunday. Anyone wanting to experience riding the circuit by taking part in either of the track parades, then check out where entry forms can be downloaded.

Away from the track, more than 20 motorcycle owners clubs have already signed up to take part in Club Central, promising a great display of machinery from many different manufacturers and many different eras  And there will be live music on both Friday and Saturday evenings.


The Mallory Bike Bonanza is organised by the circuit’s management team and Real Motorsport Ltd and Director Eddie Roberts said “We’re really excited that the Bike Bonanza is returning again this year, last year was hugely successful and it was organised in such a short space of time, so with more time to prepare this year we know that it can only get better.  Having the TT legend that is John McGuinness joining us and with his own collection of motorcycles on display for the first time ever, well that really is going to be something special!”

Admission tickets go on sale on Monday 9th March at 9.00am – call the Mallory hotline 01455 502214.
