ADRIAN FLUX CLASSIC CAR AND BIKE SHOW
July 1 2009.

One of the newest and fastest growing classic bike shows in the UK has announced a late change of venue for Summer 2009. But it's not moving far. Formerly the Wroughton Classic Show and originally occupying the Science Museum's Wroughton Airfield site, the show is moving this summer to The Liddington, a prestige 155 acre location only five miles away, but even closer to Junction 15 of the M4 motorway.

In just three years from its founding in 2006 the Show has grown to become the largest in the UK, attracting over 3,000 classic vehicles and more than 25,000 visitors last year. Now, with a new headline sponsor the show is entitled The Adrian Flux Classic Car and Bike Show and can offer extra facilities for family visitors and enthusiasts. Adrian Flux Insurance Services owns specialist bike insurance broker Bikesure.

Founder and organiser Greg Dunningham has taken the decision to move with an eye to the show's continued and growing popularity, and says it's an opportunity too good to miss.

"Our success at Wroughton exceeded our wildest expectations, but we had to share that site with a working museum, and it was clear I had to think to the future," he says. "The Liddington offers several bonuses. It's got as much space as the old venue, but it also has several entry points enabling us to use a faster 'one way system' for entry and exit, along with separate trade access.

"And we've negotiated special deals with the attached Hotel and Conference Centre for visitors who want to relax and stay over. For example, they are offering visitors to the Show top quality accommodation from only £18 per person per room."

This regenerated Adrian Flux Classic Car and Bike Show is being run in conjunction with Adrian Flux Insurance Services, Classic Bike Magazine and Classic Car Weekly and is set to be the largest ever. The show will feature a huge variety of motorcycles and cars - from veteran 'old crocks' to rare examples of legendary racing bikes and concours-quality motorbikes, along with a wide range of old, traditional and unusual vehicles.

TV and media coverage includes the Classic Gear programme from the 'Men and Motors' TV channel, which last year dedicated an entire episode to the show. The episode has been shown again recently and will be repeated again in the near future, and a clip may soon be seen on the website, www.adrianfluxclassic.co.uk  

"Our advance bookings already suggest this is set to be the biggest year so far, and so we are making plans for plenty of space and lots of family attractions. It will be a grand day out, not just for enthusiasts but for all the family," says Greg Dunningham.

On the day, entrance to the show will be £10 for a car and up to four people. However, 'early birds' can buy advance tickets for only £5 from the special ticket page on the show's website, www.adrianfluxclassic.co.uk. All that's needed is to quote the offer code CLASSIC03 when completing the purchase.

Rob Balls of Bikesure says the move is taking the show to a new level, and is a superb opportunity to meet customers. "We're delighted that Adrian Flux is the headline sponsor for 2009," he says. "It's also a valuable chance to get feedback on what classic bike owners really need from their insurance. And we'll be able to give them quotes - then and there at the show - so they can compare with their existing policies or get instant cover."
