Bromyard Speed Festival are to run the Bringsty Grand Prix on April 7th as part of their programme of 2018 events. The meeting will revive the original races run in 1946 and 47 reflecting the optimism felt after the privations of the Second World War, including petrol rationing, 70 plus years on.
A small pilot event was held last year to test the format but this year sees a full scale motocross meeting for vintage and classic motorbikes recalling the fantastic motoring heritage of this area.
Julian Garness landowner and Clerk of the Course added “This year’s Bringsty Grand Prix will be run on practically the same course as the 1947 event. We are extremely lucky to have several local residents that attended the original meeting as children and can remember where it went.
“A full entry is expected of machines from the golden era of British motorcycling and, hopefully, some bikes as old as the original Bringsty Grand Prix.
“We are hoping for local riders to come along and ride in the special exhibition class to showcase their classic bikes without competing. Racing will be run by an established local MX club guaranteeing a great day out for all the family. The sights, sounds and smells of the bikes will evoke happy memories of a bygone era.”
