Since the news broke that the long-standing International Dirt Bike Show was moving to Stafford County Showground from Stoneleigh Park, feedback has been positive – from both a trade and enthusiast perspective. This will now be further boosted with the confirmation that major manufacturer Yamaha will be in attendance with its biggest stand ever for the jam-packed, two-day autumn event.
Jeff Turner, marketing manager of Yamaha, said: “The annual Dirt Bike Show continues to provide us with a unique opportunity to showcase Yamaha off-road products and we are delighted to be able to support Mortons again for their new 2019 event, as they develop and invest in the show to ensure its future viability and success. The exciting changes that are planned, along with the different venue, look set to take the event to a new level, while the revised timing and cost restructuring should ensure support from the industry and, in turn, increases to visitor numbers.”
The new dates of September 28-29 mean the show is brought forward but it stays in season with the off-road world. Although it does coincide with the Motocross of Nations at Assen, organisers Mortons Media Group Ltd intend to cater for race fans at the show with a live stream throughout the weekend.
