Classic Car & Motorcycle live 2011 - Mondello Park

05.06. 2011

Classic Car & Motorcycle Live is Irelands only Classic Show to combine both track activities and static displays. The show, in its fourth year is mix of Classic & Vintage Car and Motorcycle displays with Racing Action, Parade Laps, High Speed 'Track Day' Sessions and a Trade area. The June 19th event will be a celebration of 50 years of the MG Midget and 30 years of the MG Enthusiasts Club Ireland, and will once again be supported by our friends in Irish Vintage Scene Magazine.

The MG celebrations will centre around the diminutive Midget with cars on static display and driving on track in parade laps. Midgets will also feature strongly in the Historic Car Race demonstrations.

The event is unique among Irish Classic Car Shows, not only because of its Live Action but also due to its all tarmac display area and permanent facilities on site. Exhibitors at the show can avail of covered spaces in the circuits Pit Garage and Hospitality Suite complex with hard standing also available for those bringing their own set up. Clubs and individual exhibitors also reap the benefits of the tarmac surface which provides unrivalled access and safer parking than most other Classic Car Show venues.

This year the show welcomes an exciting new addition as an official Classic Motorcycle display area and Classic Motorcycle Racing will be joining the show for the first time. With two wheeled classics added to the show, Classic Live will have an even busier track than in previous years, along with an even more jam-packed paddock. The Irish Classic Racing Association along with the Dunboyne Motor Club will provide the exhibits within their own separate motorcycle area. This area will feature more than just motorcycles as it will be dressed with many period features which will give it the feel of a bye-gone era. The machinery on display will include a number of bikes of important Irish historical interest, while on track the famous bikes will be joined by famous classic riders. Six times Manx GP winner Chris McGahan and the rider with the greatest ever number of TT starts, Dave Madsen Mygdal, will both travel from the Isle of Man and they will be joined by the top local Classic racers for at least three races.
