Settling In… …To A New Home
Have you ever moved house or workshop?
Tim Britton

I bet you have and it’s always an uncertain time –you know the move is going to be better, you wouldn't have moved otherwise, but there is that adjustment period to contend with first.

So it is with the International Dirt Bike Show in its new home at Stafford County Showground.The major uncertainty for 2019 was one that no event organizer can counteract… the weather!

In the weeks leading up to the new show dates of September 28-29, the weather forecast was horrendous as the effects on the motorcycle sports world spread. In the end though, for the International Dirt Bike Show – this year backed by CentralWheel Components – the conditions didn’t cause too many problems, except when the Classic Dirt Bike editor had booked his test ride on the Electric Motion Trials Bike in the Inch Perfect demo area!

Also, the MX test session at the bottom of the showground had to be curtailed as the track cut up.

Okay, on the face of it you’d think there wouldn’t be much at a modern show for classic enthusiasts but there was – us for a start!
