Legendary Riders To Celebrate 80 Years at Cadwell Park

by James Charman

Motorcycling legends, along with their legendary machinery, will take to the Cadwell Park circuit to celebrate 80 years of the Lincolnshire venue.

Local heroes Guy Martin, Derek Chatterton and Steve Plater will take part in the Classic Racer Champions of Cadwell Parade, while three celebration races will top the bill for the competitive on track action. The races include the Classic King of Cadwell, Charlie’s Trophy and Tommy Wood Trophy contests, comprising of motorcycles across the decades.

“In March 1994 I had my first race meeting at Cadwell Park and I won a race,” said Isle of Man TT and North West 200 race winner, Plater. “For me it was like winning a Grand Prix. There’s always a great atmosphere there and as a rider, when you are sat on the start line, the crowd are so close. It always produces good racing, and nowhere in the world has the Mountain.”

“My best memory of Cadwell Park was when I beat Giocomo Agostini on the 500MV,” added Chatterton. “Nobody had beaten him round there before. Being local, you realised that everybody was gunning for you, so you’d do the best you can. Cadwell’s a really good circuit, I think it’s one of the best in the country.”

Fans booking in advance can take advantage of camping on Saturday night, with live music from The Tuesdays in the Clubhouse providing entertainment. Sunday’s event will also include displays of classic motorcycles and cars, as well as a classic trials bike display and more live music throughout the day from The Stolen Fridays.

Tickets start at £14 in advance for the event on the 3rd August, while tickets including camping cost £24 – camping will not be available on the gate.
