The 2021 Classics on Show event featured its first dedicated motorbike arena, which had the support of the Yorkshire Coast British Motorcycle Club which is planning to exhibit up to a dozen bikes again in 2022.

Also going on show is a rare 1967 British Velocette Thruxton one of only 441 ever sold in the UK. The bike is being brought to the event by a member of the Velocette Owners’ Club North Yorkshire.

The 1967 model roared into motorcycle history books when Neil Kelly and Keith Heckles gained first and second places in the Isle of Man’s 500cc Production TT race – the first time a production-machine event was staged at the TT with Kelly recording the fastest lap at 91 mph.
