THE DATE - JULY 13, 14 &15 2018
THE VENUE - RISEHOLME COLLEGE, LINCOLN, ENGLAND
THE EVENT - 'THE AIRHEAD EVENT' - THE LARGEST GATHERING OF VINTAGE AND CLASSIC BIKES PLUS RIDERS EVER HELD IN THE U.K.
This is more than a Rally; more than a Show: it's an Event - The Airhead Event. And it will be unmissable for anyone who appreciates the older, air-cooled bikes that established BMW's reputation for quality engineering, superb design and long-legged performance.
If you like Rallies, then you'll like this event, with rides outs, socialising, quizzes and prizes
If you like Bike Shows then you'll like this event, with the largest display of vintage and classic BMW's ever - plus the usual vendors and trade stands.
But we're giving you more: more about your bikes - how to repair them, how design theory was turned into reality, how lighting can be upgraded and both looks and handling improved. There will be continuous activities to entertain and inform you - Technical demonstrations and talks will always be available, with the likes of Steve Scriminger, Bob Porecha and Ian Brocklebank already signed up to share their considerable knowledge. There will be presentations on a variety of topics - from tyres to oils to batteries. There will be Airhead Celebrities of the calibre of Hans Muth and Elspeth Beard (both are now confirmed))to regail you with their experience and knowledge. There are more are in the pipeline. Insurance permitting you'll even be able to experience the pleasures of riding pre-1969 and pre-war BMW's around the private grounds of the college. And on Sunday we plan on having the largest Show of BMW models ever got together in this country, followed by a cavalcade through Lincoln for a gathering in front of the Cathedral (to be confirmed)
Such an event has never been held in the U.K. before and surely never will be again. It's a one-off and not to be missed. To be sure of sharing in this unique Airhead experience you'll need to book early - the nature of the seminars, talks and activities is such that we must restrict numbers. With six months still to go we're well over half full and once we hit our maximum size then bookings will will be closed.
Admission £35 for the 3 day. Day tickets also available from £15.
B&B is just £41, (single rooms only), Plenty more accomodation available in Lincoln.
Motorhomes and Caravans can park up on site but tents will have to use one of the local campsites (several available)
Cafeteria and bar facilities on site.
Easy access and ample parking.
Food and accommodation are charged at cost. If we make any profit on admission prices then this will be donated to the Air Ambulance, for whom we are authorised fundraisers.
1.3.2018 - Update. Tickets are now on sale again! Bookings had to be stopped in January when we hit our admittance limit. Since then we have booked extra space and more speakers so there is still the opportunity to book - but these extra places are expected to sell out quickly, so don't leave it too long!
In a further attempt to make The Event available to as many people as possible, we're planning on opening up a second tier of entry on the Sunday. For a £5 donation to the Air Ambulance people can enter, look around the vendors, see the bike show (I'm hoping for about 200 vintage and classic BMW's going right back to 1923) and share in a unique event.This tier of entry won't allow you to listen to the talks or take part in many of the activities, but you'll be surrounded by lovely old Be-ems and their riders in an event that, sadly, is unlikely ever to happen again. No tickets for this tier of entry - just turn up on the day.
