November 1 2013. 

The first day of the 2013 International Dirt Bike Show closed on a high note today with thousands of off-road fans spending the last day of October at a busy and vibrant 14th visit of the event to Stoneleigh Park, near Coventry in Warwickshire. 

For the new organiser, Mortons Media Group, keeping the crowds entertained was always high up on the agenda and they clearly delivered, with visitors of all ages finding plenty to see and do from the very moment they set foot on the concourse at the front of the main exhibition hall. Whilst queuing for tickets or grabbing a bite to eat from one of the outside catering units, show-goers could witness the brave trying to conquer the Extreme Wheelie Machine and then once inside the main foyer they were spoilt for choice with stand-holders in the packed retail and exhibition halls waiting to greet them.

All the major players in the industry had pulled out the stops in the main hall to create a vibrant impact with innovative stand builds housing the latest and very best machines, kit, parts, accessories and aftermarket goods.

Retailers in the bustling hall one reported steady opening-day business and, with the promise of more to come, closed the day busily stocking up in time for tomorrow’s opening.

Fans flocked to the Live Arena in hall four to enjoy and applaud the antics of Steve Colley and his amazing Trials Stunt show, Danny Butler and his Extreme MTB extravaganza and Pete Boast with his Flattrack Racing demos. Over in hall five, it was the youngsters doing the work, with specialists Oset and Kuberg providing have-a-go sessions on mini electric trials bikes; My First Honda showing first-time riders how it’s done; Get On putting wanna-be road riders through their paces and the Fro Systems Superlites putting on a series of frenetic practice heats.

For anyone looking for a full-on, action-packed day out with family and friends, there really is only place to be tomorrow and over the weekend; The International Dirt Bike Show at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.
