Just to get you fired up - Amazing bikes to be seen and almost certainly ridden on the day -
The 17th August 2014 will see Brackley Festival of Motorcycling back on the High Street of Brackley ... keep watching for more information.
Well we said that this year was our best yet and the amount of money we are able to pass to our nominated charities just proves that. We are extremely proud to announce that even after we have taken into account the considerable costs of putting on such an event we are able to donate:
- £8,000 to the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance
- £2,000 to the Katharine House Hospice
- £1,500 to the Brackley Food Bank
- £500 to Road Racing Legends
- £500 in small donations to local causes
In addition to this our charities themselves raised over £3,000 on the day through bucket shaking and a few extremely kind donations (thanks Super Sausage and many others) bringing our grand total raised through the Festival to over £15,000!
It was an absolute pleasure to meet up with representatives of our major charities in the centre of Brackley today and present them with handy, pocket sized cheques and snap a few photos for the album. Now we just have to beat this target for next year..
Our thanks go to all of you as by attending the event and (more importantly) buying a ticket you have made this possible. Thank you!
BFoMC are very pleased to announce Flyin Ryan as a main attraction for the 2012 Festival.
Riding a high powered motocross bike, Flyin Ryan and his stunt riders perform huge motorcycle jumps over cars or anything else they can get into the arena. Ryan performs entertaining wheelies with only one hand, one leg, standing up, sitting down, and standing on his seat ,whilst at the same time, keeping the crowd involved via his non stop commentary from inside his helmet.
Dougie Lampkin, the 12 times World Trial Champion, will join us to perform on the field arena (& maybe the High Street too). Riding in the FIM Trial World Championship Dougie has been at the top of his game since the mid 1990's and is still competing at that level.
