Few motorcycle racers can boast a CV that comes close to Michael Rutter’s, Guest of Honour at the Carole Nash Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic show.

In a career spanning over 20 years, which goes back to the early 1990’s, when a teenage Rutter took to the track following in his famous father Tony’s footsteps – Michael has amassed a total of 14 North West 200 wins, an unequalled eight Macau victories and five Isle of Man TT wins, and he’s still on winning form in the BSB Superstock too.


With his laid back and modest approach Michael has always been a fan’s favourite, and he is guaranteed to share some great stories, during his stage appearances over the weekend of 6-7 January 2018.

Exhibition Manager, Nick Mowbray said:

“We’ve worked hard over the past five years to establish the Carole Nash Winter Classic as the official start to the classic year, and this year we’re really pulling out all the stops. Due to the high demand from clubs and trade alike, two new halls have been added, making the largest show in this fantastic event’s short history. We can’t wait to see what 2018 brings!”


The scooter scene has always formed an important part of the Winter Classic, and it’s no different for 2018. Classic Scooterist Magazine editor, Mau Spencer has helped to grow the scooter element of the show, with plans to make 2018’s the most prolific yet:

“If everything goes to plan, it looks like this could be the biggest and best Scooter World we’ve ever done. In a bid to keep things fresh, we’re changing the format slightly, adding various interactive attractions within (and outside) the halls to keep everyone entertained. I’m particularly looking forward to the new Mods & Rockers show theme, and would encourage as many people as possible to dig out the slick suits or scruffy leather jackets and join in on the fun!”


The show is the perfect opportunity to explore hundreds of classic bikes and scooters on display -offering the chance for restorers to pick up a brand new project for 2018, find the parts and spares to complete a restoration, and enjoy another year of motorcycling.

Sponsors of the Classic Bike Guide Winter Classic 2018, Carole Nash will once again be out in force throughout the event. They’ll be in the Carole Nash tent, handing out goodie bags and giveaways as well as discussing insurance queries. You’ll also be able to enter their free prize draw to win a fantastic biking prize. Who knows, 2018 could be your lucky year!
