THE Classic Dirt Bike Show sponsored by Hagon Shocks, held at the Telford International Centre across the weekend of February 17-18, will house one of the biggest displays of Hagon bikes ever seen in one place.

From humble beginnings in the family garden shed during his early racing career, Alf Hagon grew his company into a well-respected suspension specialist in its own right that is known across the globe and now run by his son Martin Hagon.

As part of the company’s 60th anniversary celebrations, Hagon Products has asked anyone with a Hagon-framed bike to bring it to the show and there will be trophies for the best three Hagon bikes in show alongside the usual accolades given out each year.

Hagon Shocks will also be taking an impeccable collection of bikes to the event, including a Hagon-JAP drag bike which was the first bike outside the US to run a sub 10-second quarter mile. The drag bike set two world records, the fastest standing start kilometre and the fastest standing start quarter mile at Elvington in 1967.

Other machines from the Hagon family’s collection which will be at the show include: the Hagon-JAP grass track bike, the Hagon 500cc speedway bike and a Hagon long track bike which Martin Hagon rode to second place in the 1990 British Masters Championship.
Grass track legend Alf Hagon will be a guest of honour at the show alongside Jeff Smith, Gerrit Wolsink, Colin Dommett and Peter Duke; he will be interviewed about his career exploits each day by Jack Burnicle.

Tony Hutchison from Hagon Shocks said: “We have asked for anybody with a Hagon-framed bike to bring it along, and each bike (and owner) could tell a story or two about their exploits, we’re sure!

“We hope you all have your bloodhound instincts finely tuned to uncover that elusive part for the coming riding season or project bike among the vast array of parts and bikes on display.”

The show is sure to have something that will tickle your fancy as clubs and private entries pack into the venue to display the most fascinating collection of historic off-road machines you’ll find under one roof. 

They will be joined by a mass of traders offering everything from parts, accessories, riding kit and project bikes to tempt you – and that’s not even including the autojumble, which opens an hour before the show on both days and will be overflowing with bargains.

Discounted advance tickets start at £12 for adults and children under 12 are FREE. But hurry, this special discount offer closes at 8.30am on Tuesday, February 13. 

If you wish to contact Hagon Shocks about bringing one of your bikes for the stand, please call 0208 5026222

AMCA Continue to Fight Motorcycle Theft with Datatag

The UK’s leading motocross race organisation, the AMCA, has declared its continued war on motorcycle theft by again partnering with the UK's leading security marking brand Datatag, to protect their fleet of Yamaha Off-Road Experience School MX bikes.
The fleet of new Yamaha machines are used across the UK by the AMCA to deliver off road riding experiences for Yamaha UK.  However, with off road motorcycles high on the wish list of thieves, the AMCA were keen to protect their new fleet with Datatag’s state of the art marking technology.
AMCA General Manager Sue Potts is delighted that the continued sponsorship of the AMCA Masters Championship has enabled them to protect their school fleet. “We are delighted that Datatag have renewed their support for our Championships in 2018  and I want to yet again send a very loud and very clear message to motorcycle thieves that the AMCA takes theft seriously, both with our own bikes and that of our members,"
"I am also pleased that AMCA members can now protect their own bikes with Datatag technology at a heavily discounted price.  The AMCA will not let stolen bikes be used at our events and we will continue our work with Datatag to ensure that bikes are checked regularly.”
Dave Luscombe from Datatag, who assisted the AMCA protecting their fleet of Yamaha school bikes said, "We are delighted to continue our relationship with the AMCA.  Given the high levels of theft in the off road world, it is critical that all riders take measures to reduce the risk that their motorcycle will be stolen, and a simple but powerful measure is Datatag.  Combined with a strong lock and secure storage, Datatag provides the peace of mind that if your bike is stolen, there is a good chance that it will be returned. And now AMCA members can protect their bikes for less money thanks to our new exclusive AMCA member discount." 
Buyers of bikes not protected by the Official MASTER Scheme, which is helping discourage theft across the industry, or owners of older pre Master scheme bikes can protect themselves with the same level of security as the MASTER Scheme by fitting a Datatag Off-Road Motorcycle system.  Available through all reputable dealers or through Datatag themselves the system retails for a one off cost of just £59.99.
AMCA members can benefit from discounted rates for the Datatag system ranging from 15 to 25% off RRP depending on their membership level.  Contact the AMCA for more information on this special offer.

Terry King - AMCA President

The AMCA is delighted to announce the appointment of Terry King as Honorary President with immediate effect, a position which has been vacant since Gordon Mycock passed away in 2015.
Terry is currently suffering from ill health having been diagnosed with terminal cancer two years ago.

Born in 1947 and originally from Wombourne, near Wolverhampton Terry met his wife Linda at the Ever Ready factory and followed Speedway at Wolverhampton for years before taking up Motocross.

In 1976 whilst living in Leamington Spa he joined the Standard (Coventry) AMCA club.  Within 12 months he and Linda moved to Cottesmore in Rutland and started the Leicester Club with the Whitehouse family.  In 1979 he was one of the founding members of the local Oakham club with whom he rode regularly, mainly in the Senior class, but also tried his hand later at Sidecars.
He was soon elected at the East Group Co-ordinator and moved on to the AMCA Executive Committee, and in 1984 when the AMCA was formed as a limited company he was one of the original Directors – a position he held for over 30 years.
During 1982 he took the position of the AMCA’s PRO (Public Relations Officer) and organised 3 scrambles in the Isle of Man during the Manx Road Racing week in September.
This entailed securing the use of tracks while the office looked after boat and accommodation bookings for over 100 AMCA riders.  This event became an annual event for several years.  Whilst the riders rode on the Monday, Wednesday and Friday and watched the road racing on Tuesday and Thursday Terry did a spot of fishing.
Terry also arranged a meeting with Kate Hoey, the Labour Party Minister for Sport and he Don Green had afternoon tea with her in the office whilst trying to explain why the Government should “recognise” the AMCA.  He also arranged for parties of riders from the East Group of clubs to compete in Holland under the IMBA banner.
2002 saw Terry elected as the AMCA as the Vice Chairman at the AGM with 73 MX clubs represented, and the following year he took over as the Chairman after Don Green stepped down after 26 years.
Terry was instrumental in putting the AMCA in touch with East Lindsey District Council, which ultimately led to the Skegness Beach Race.  This two day event is now in its 8th year.
In addition to his interest in the AMCA he was  a County Councillor for 18 years including being the Leader of the Council.   Both him and Linda are both keen supporters of the Wolves Football team and they both still attend many games home and away.
His attendance of AMCA Committee Meetings was 100% over the 35 years, he never missed an AGM, Executive Committee Meeting, Motocross Committee Meeting or Directors Meeting.

Terry defines the AMCA as the "biggest sporting co-operative - everyone owns it and everyone has a say on how it's run"
