Shelsley Walsh Bike Festival

Shelsley Walsh Bike Festival gives you the unique opportunity to get up close and see lots of historic, classic and modern race bikes and watch, smell, hear and see them run the historic hill climb course. Entries for Paddock Specials are both by invitation and by application – so if you own a historic bike, the organisers want to hear from you via their website. Shelsley Walsh is the oldest motor sport venue in continuous use in the world, being first used in 1905, making it older than Indianapolis, Le Mans or Monza.

One of the highlights will be legendary motorcycle builder Allen Millyard taking to the hill on his home-built "Flying Millyard" – do not by fooled by its appearance, despite resembling a vintage motorcycle, this beast is powered by a gigantic 5.0-litre V-twin engine designed for an aeroplane! Shelsley Walsh Bike Festival promises to be a great day out for all motorcycling enthusiasts.
