The South of England ‘RealClassic’ Show takes place on Sunday 10th March 2013 at the South of England Showground, Ardingly, West Sussex, RH17 6TL.
With over 150 pre-1980 machines on display in the indoor Show Halls, competition will be fierce in the 10 classes and especially so for the hotly contested Best Club Stand prize. More clubs than ever are entered, including several sections of the BSA Owner’s Club, The Sunbeam MotorCycle Club, the Norton Owners Club and the BSA Bantam Club. Judging is by Frank Westworth of RealClassic magazine, who sponsor the Show. An unenviable task given the standard and number of machines on display.
New for 2013, The Royal British Legion will be providing a Helmet Park with all proceeds going to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. As committed motorcyclists they’ll also be sure to take care of your precious lid! Suggested minimum donation is £1, find them in The Stockmans Building.
The large motorcycle-only Autojumble takes place over 4 additional halls plus outside stalls. A range of specialists will be selling new and used spares for an enormous range of motorcycles, plus new & period clothing and motorcycle accessories. The autojumble continues to grow, and gives the classic motorcycle enthusiast the ideal opportunity to find that essential part for their pride & joy or to buy a new project for restoration. There’s also a free-to-enter BikeMart, where complete machines are bought and sold. Just pay your admittance fee and bring the bike in.
There’s additional catering, including a Hog roast with local free-range pork.
