It’s time to get into the workshop, pull off the bike cover, dust off your riding gear and get your classic bikes ready for the 2024 Shannons Classic Bike Broadford to be held over the Easter long weekend (March 29-31).
With the Motorcycle Australia-promoted ‘Broadford Bike Bonanza’ taking a break for another year, the Easter tradition will be kept alive for old bike enthusiasts at Shannons Classic Bike. The extravaganza will be held at the purpose-built State Motorcycle Sports Complex.
“Following our successful promotion of the event last year, we’re back again this year to ensure the enthusiasm and spirit of the event is kept alive,” said co-promoter Rachelle Pettifer. “The event is an annual highlight for retired competitors, collectors, modern day racers and their friends and families.
“There’s something for everyone, as we run track sessions across classes and disciplines. The event also creates a great opportunity for a lot of bench racing, catching up with mates from old school race days and maybe having a ride or two.”
The tarmac circuit will host pre-1998 race and road bikes, along with sidecars. In addition, this year will see the dirt and speedway tracks open to both classic (pre-1998) and modern bikes.
The Shannons Classic Bike Broadford will allow spectators to get up close to the bikes of yesteryear. The complex also offers brilliant spectator viewing across all the various circuits.
Spectator entry is free and there’s catering onsite. Camping is available at $10 per night per person, while a band will rock the crowd on Saturday night with a selection of old classics.
The complex is located at 260 Strath Creek Road, Broadford (Vic) – an easy drive up the Hume Highway from Melbourne. Camping is available onsite, and there’ll be catering across the three days.
