Classic Bike Trackdays are predominantly for pre-2000 bikes although some later machines which are in the spirit of the events are welcomed too. There are limited numbers on track, and groups are split by machine age, capacity and/or rider experience, with all levels of experience welcome. You can even bring and ride multiple bikes if you like. There's a great friendly atmosphere both on the track and in the paddock, which is a key feature of all their events which often resemble a rolling wishlist of bikes you have always lusted after!


If you do not have the inclination to ride on circuit or your machine is too new, the action is not confined to the track, and you can still be part of the show. So, for those of you in need of a nudge to drag that bike out from the back of the garage, remember why you own it, dust it down and ready it for the summer as there are three glorious full weekends, and three one-day events you really need to add to your diary.

Saturday 15 April: The Classic Bike Burn Up at Castle Combe

A laid-back season opener where the team host their usual riders and classics including the Vintage Motor Cycle Club and Brooklands Museum Members with some real vintage beauties coming along, displaying their machines in the paddock as well as bringing them to life on track.

Free entry for all spectators.

Weekend 27-28 May: The Welsh Classic Motorcycle Festival at Anglesey

As well as constant track action throughout the weekend from some amazing classics and iconic race bikes, 2023 celebrates anniversaries from Yamaha’s diminutive FS1E to the mental R1, the BMW K1 and the awesome Aprilia Tuono. All the owners have the opportunity to head out on track for a blast or join the ride out on the “Chippy Run” through the beautiful Welsh countryside back to the circuit for a fresh fish supper.

Saturday evening entertainment kicks off with CBT’s resident DJ, with the evening highlights including celebrity guests on stage reliving racing stories, and closing the night with a live band.

Ticketed event which includes camping for all the spectators.

Weekend 15-16 July: Suzuki Live at Cadwell Park

A unique weekend hosted by Suzuki GB with wall-to-wall Suzuki action on track (for the first time both classic and modern bikes), numerous ex-Grand Prix racing heroes will be reunited with Suzuki GP machines keeping the visitors entertained all weekend on track and in the paddock, as well as on the Suzuki stage on Saturday evening. Suzuki clubs from all over the UK will be in the paddock, plus you'll be able to test ride some new Suzuki machines on the road, and for those with adventure in their heart the new V-Strom range will be available on a dedicated off-road skills course. This will be a huge weekend for anyone with a passion for Suzukis old and new.

Ticketed event, which includes camping for all the spectators.

Friday 28 July: Donington Park

The CBT trackday is leading three days of classic action at Donington Park Classic Festival ahead of the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club meeting on Saturday and Sunday, always a very busy few days full of incredible machines with some amazing displays both off and on track.

Friday is free entry for all spectators.

Friday 25 August: The Classic Bike Burn Up at Castle Combe

As with the 15 April date, a laid back day with limited numbers on track, which surprises many a rider when they find out the circuit is as big and wide as Donington Park, but limited to 20 on track per group so plenty of room to let 'er rip!

The Burn Up will be another feature event for the Vintage Motor Cycle Club so expect some great displays, a track parade and a ride-out to and from the circuit.

Free entry for all spectators.

Weekend 16-17 September: Cadwell Moto at Cadwell Park

Cadwell Moto is a new two-day event to end the year on a high for all riders and visitors, whatever their biking persuasion.

In addition to all the on-track action, which will run throughout the weekend, there will be a very special celebration of Honda's 75th anniversary, featuring models from throughout the company’s history on display on track and in the paddock.

There will also be an off-road adventure bike experience with Rally Moto, celebrity guests and more Saturday evening entertainment in the Cadwell Moto marquee from guest riders, the resident DJ and live band, plus there's more in the pipeline.

Ticketed event, which includes camping for all the spectators.
