    For the first time in the 40 year history of Cagiva, a stunning display of eleven of the fire engine red racers will be displayed in one place, at the Carole Nash Classic Mechanics Show, held in Stafford on October 13-14.

    The machines, part of the collection owned by Dean Simpkins and his father Martyn, are all genuine factory racers, ridden by some of Grand Prix racings greatest riders, including the Eddie Lawson and John Kocinski 500cc race winning bikes.

    After agreeing the deal with Dean Simpkins at Donington Park, the show organiser’s Associate Director Malc Wheeler said “This is something very different, and special for the show. I am genuinely excited about this display and can’t thank Dean and Martyn enough for making it possible for people to enjoy this incredible collection.”

    In addition to the machines on display, there will also be two former factory riders, Jon Ekerold and Pier Paolo Bianchi at the show. South African Ekerold won the 1980 350cc World Championship, on a privateer Bimota Yamaha, against the might of the Kawasaki factory team and their ace rider Anton Mang. An old skool all-rounder Jon also won the Ulster Grand Prix and finished runner up in the Isle of Man TT twice.

    Jon Ekerold was a factory Cagiva rider in 1982 and the machine he rode forms part of the display.

    Pier Paolo Bianchi is a three-time World Champion winning the FIM World title in the 125cc class in 1976 and 77, and for the third time in 1980. He was a factory rider for Cagiva in 1988 and the machine he raced is part of the display.

    Bianchi and Ekerold will be interviewed on stage throughout the weekend by compere Steve Plater, alongside the show’s third Guest of Honour, racing legend Terry Rymer.

    The Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show at Stafford is the biggest classic bike show in the world of its kind. It’s packed with thousands of classic machines and is the natural home for bike clubs to meet and show off their motorcycles.

    Discounted advance tickets for the show are now on sale, with a one-day adult pass costing just £12. Tickets will also be available on the gate, priced at £14 each. Under 12s tickets are £3 in advance or £4 on the day and parking is free.
