Welcome to the VMCC Banbury Run website.
PRESS RELEASE - November 2014
The VMCC Ltd is delighted to announce that dates for the 67th VMCC Banbury Run which will be held at the Motor Heritage Centre, Gaydon, Warwickshire on Sunday 21st June 2015
With the support of event partners Footman James Insurance Brokers, Bonhams Auctioneers & Old Bike Mart the format of the 67th run will be similar to 2014 but with new routes and checkpoints to challenge the riders. With a reduced entry of 500 entrants the VMCC Banbury Run is still the biggest gathering & run in the world for machines manufactured before 1931. Operating over 3 different routes which all converge back on Gaydon the Banbury Run caters for those who wish to enter a timed event or those who just enjoy the thrill of riding with so many other Vintage, Veteran & Pioneer bikes.
Discounted entries fees will be available for Veteran machines (manufactured prior to 01/01/15) to encourage more of the very oldest bikes to enter the event.
All 500 Banbury Run places sell out before the closing date of 28/02/15 so its important that entry forms (which are available from VMCC HQ on 05/01/15) are returned as quickly as possible.
The Bonhams Auction.
Event partner Bonhams will again be holding a sale of Pioneer, Veteran and Vintage Motorcycles the afternoon before the run on Sat 20/06/15. The venue for the auction will be Bonhams prestigious saleroom at Banbury Rd, Shipton on Cherwell, Kidlington, Oxford, OX5 1JH.
Supported by Old Bike Mart the famous Banbury Run autojumble is always a favourite as one of the best sources of Veteran & Vintage Motorcycle spares. If you are interested in an autojumble pitch please contact Joanne Delaney at VMCC HQ or email email@example.com
Can you help?
We rely on dozens of volunteers to make the event happen. We always require marshals to help at the checkpoints on the various routes or on the site itself and can promise you not only a great day out but also a packed lunch! If you would like to help please contact Helen Bensley at VMCC HQ firstname.lastname@example.org.
The dedicated event website is available @ www.banbury-run.co.uk which not only has all the latest event information, but also has all the entry forms etc to download in a PDF format as from 05/01/15.
