WINGS & WHEELS - DUNSFOLD 2017
Once again those Club stalwarts Don, Bob and Bernie do it again with the SBMOC set up the only motorcycle stand in the Show and looking as professional as any other exhibitor. Tea, coffee, cakes and sweets provided by the above folk ensured those exhibiting could enjoy a cuppa after their journey and before taking in all there was to see. Although the Club had a wide variety of bikes (not just Triumphs) the machines that get the most attention seem to be the smallest, in this case the Raleigh Wisp, Corgi and a variety of Bantams. The Club static display provoked plenty of questions from the spectators and cameras and 'phones were much in evidence and it was good to see Roy Robinson still thundering up the runway on his Egli Vincent. The sight of Des Lindsey on his Formula 1 Yahama outfit must have brought back memories for George after his trip around the Goodwood circuit on that outfit.
I must admit I had feared that there might be drop in the flying display after the Shoreham tragedy but that proved not to be the case, from Pitts special to the Red Arrows the display was comprehensive with the Typhoon setting deaf aids whistling and car alarms into action. Far too much more to cover in a short report but please put this show in your diary for 2018 as it is £15 very well spent.
