Easter Weekend Motorcycle EventsPublished 11/04/2019With Easter falling late in April, we’ve got our fingers crossed for a long weekend spent in the sunshine (or at the very least dry)! Four months in to the year and we’ve seen some fantastic biking events already, but for us; the best is yet to come! Here’s our pick of the best events near you this Easter Weekend.
Bennetts British Superbike Championship
The next race on the calendar falls on Easter weekend and takes us to Silverstone! These powerful bikes average more than 180 bhp and can reach speeds of 200mph! Silverstone is known for its fast corners, so expect to see plenty of overtaking and edge of your seat racing!
If the exhilarating speed and explosive acceleration off the start weren’t enough to tempt you, then perhaps the free paddock access all weekend, and a free pit walk on Sunday is enough to convince you?
Head to the British Super Bike website for ticket prices and booking.
19-21 April – Silverstone Circuit, Northamptonshire
Red Marley Hill Climb
Recently resurrected, this historic race is an absolute classic on the racing calendar. Videos and pictures don’t do justice for the size of the hill racers have to climb to win. Kids under 11 go free at this event and so long as the weather is nice it is a fantastic day out for the family. Even if the weather isn’t great it makes for fantastic racing!
Head to the official Red Marley Hill Climb site for more information and to get tickets.
21-22 April – Great Witley, Worcestershire
Ashford Classic Motorcycle Show
If you’re interested in classic motorcycles this is the event to head to. Expect to see Triumphs, BSAs, Ariels, Levis, Francis-Barnet, and Greeves machines. There’s lots of trade and autojumble stands, plus exhibitions and a special talk from a special guest. Adult tickets are only £6 and kids under 16 go free. Plus if you exhibit a classic motorcycle, you get free admission.
Find out more at Elk Promotions.
22 April – Ashford Market, Kent
Southend Shakedown Resurrection
Yes, after two years away from the motorcycling calendar, it’s back! Admission is free to this seafront exhibition, where you’ll find plenty of trade stands, live music, and thousands of bikes on display. Previously there have been as many as 10,000 bikes arriving at Southend for this family event so make sure you wake up extra early on this day to see them all!
There’s plenty to do unrelated to motorcycles at Southend, so this really is the perfect end to your Easter Weekend if you have a young family.
22 April – Southend Seafront, Essex
