Attractions on the day included a Wall of Death, an extreme mountain bike show display in the main arena by the Berkhamsted Motorcycle and Car Club and Mr Showtime’s Steve Colley.

There was also a variety of different stalls and attractions for children and motorcycle enthusiasts.

The day began with the Ride In where motorcyclists gathered at the Triumph factory in Hinckley, Leicestershire, and rode down to arrive in Brackley for the event’s 10am start.

The annual event raises money for the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and local charities. The festival all began back in 2008 with one man’s dream of a Brackley motorcycle meeting in the town centre, but the reality has been very different. Enthusiastic support for the event has seen it grow to a site covering in excess of 50 acres with every kind of motorcycle sport and leisure activity represented.
