Suzuki is bringing a host of championship winning machines to this year’s Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show, which takes place on October 14-15.

On display will be the two RG500s which Barry Sheene powered to world championship success in 1976 and 1977,  joined by Kevin Schwantz’s 1993 championship-winning RGV500 and Kenny Roberts Jr’s 2000 MotoGP World Championship-winning RGV500.


Also appearing in the Suzuki village will be owners’ clubs and a handful of selected traders selling parts and giving showgoers helpful advice on all Suzuki-based enquiries.

Tim Davies, Suzuki marketing coordinator, said: “We’re incredibly excited to get back to this year’s Stafford show, and this year we will be bringing as many classic bikes and iconic race bikes as we can fit in the lorry!


“It’s shaping up to be another great event, and we’re also looking forward to seeing the displays from the Kettle Club, the Suzuki Owners’ Club, the GT X7 Club, Air-Cooled Suzuki and Katana Club, and the guys from Robinsons Foundry. Plus, we’re excited to welcome Suzuki Performance Spares to the village area, too.”

The Suzuki Village sits within two jam-packed days at the annual Stafford event, which this year includes flying Kiwi Aaron Slight – undoubtedly the best rider never to win the World Superbike title –as guest of honour. On site will be nearly 1000 trade and autojumble stalls, the Classic Racer Grand Prix Paddock, unique Restoration Theatre and Classic Dirt Bike Hall. The Stafford Bonham’s auction has also become as traditional an October treat as the show itself and will once again be held on the Sunday.
