Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club

The Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club organises a number of events throughout the year in various locations throughout the UK.

Go the the VJMC web site for further details.

The Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club organised its first Classic Show at Uttoxeter racecourse in 2007. In a remarkably short time this has become a major event on the classic motorcycle calendar. Whilst being an excellent showcase for members to display their enthusiastically restored machines, the show organisers have welcomed other clubs to enhance the attraction of the show. Consequently, a splendid range of machinery in one ideal location for serious enthusiasts to enjoy.

In addition to displays featuring almost 1,000 motorcycles, other attractions feature such as an autojumble, numerous trade stalls, a choice of catering, and a Sidecar Village. Several motorcycle clubs now hold rallies as part of the weekend extravaganza, notably in 2010 the BSA Gold Star Owners, and the Vincent Owners Club.

The 4th edition of the Uttoxeter Classic Bike Show was held over the weekend of 4th/5th July 2010, and despite the recession still managed to attract an excellent display to please both enthusiasts and the general public.

Sadly, as with many other aspects in the motorcycle and classic vehicle world, the 5th Uttoxeter Show in 2011 was the last one.

The 2010 Uttoxeter Classic Bike Show attracted a variety of displays, plus even more rarities.
