World first for Cagiva Racing

Hello, and welcome back to the Stafford County Showground for the 25th Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show. We’re thrilled to continue our support of this brilliant event. In fact, we’re convinced this year will be the best yet. With more than 30,000 bike lovers gathered alongside some of the most glorious machines from the last 50 years, what could be better? Whether it’s watching the action at the Bonhams auction, admiring the thousands of bikes on display, or taking a deep breath at the Wall of Death, there certainly won’t be a shortage of things to see and do. And don’t forget to visit the Carole Nash stand at site M52. We will be running our superb prize draw and giving away stacks of goodie bags. We will also have some stunning bikes on display, and our friendly team will be available to answer any of your insurance questions. Enjoy the show!

For the first time in the 40-year history of Cagiva, a stunning display of 11 of the fire engine red racers will be displayed in one place at the Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show over the weekend of October 13-14. The machines, part of the collection owned by Dean Simpkins and his father Martyn, are all genuine factory racers, ridden by some of Grand Prix racing’s greatest riders, including the Eddie Lawson and John Kocinski 500cc race-winning bikes. Malc Wheeler, associate director at Mortons, organisers of the show, said: “This is something very different, and special, for the show. I am genuinely excited about this display and can’t thank Dean and Martyn enough for making it possible for people to enjoy this incredible collection.”

South African Ekerold won the 1980 350cc world championship on a privateer Bimota Yamaha, against the might of the Kawasaki factory team and their ace rider Anton Mang. An old-skool all-rounder, Jon also won the Ulster Grand Prix and finished runnerup in the Isle of Man TT twice. Jon Ekerold was a factory Cagiva rider in 1982 and the machine he rode forms part of the display. Pier Paolo Bianchi is a three-time world champion, winning the FIM world title in the 125cc class in 1976 and ’77, and for the third time in 1980.
