Guy Martin’s 1500cc Suzuki will be on display at the Newark Classic Bike Show 2020

An exciting event for bikers and enthusiasts alike

The Newark Classic Bike Show on January 11-12 2020 will have on display Guy Martin’s 1500cc Suzuki, complete with turbo engine, and the man himself might even make an appearance at the event.

The bike was ridden by Guy in the ‘Race to 300mph in a standing mile’ challenge, organised by the UK Timing Association – an arm of Straightliners Events.

No one has yet managed to reach 300mph in the mile – although Guy is currently second in the running at an impressive 270.065mph.

The team are hoping that Guy will attend the show on Sunday to promote the upcoming 2020 rounds for the challenge, but his attendance is not yet guaranteed.

Applications for bike and scooter displays have been at an all-time high, and fans can expect additional display areas across the site, giving the show the biggest-ever number of bikes on show.

A brand-new ‘Workshop Wisdom’ feature from Classic Bike Guide magazine will make its debut for the 2020 show.
