Brackley Festival of Motorcycling 2017 Round Up

Published: August 23, 2017

Once again Brackley closed off its high street and welcomed thousands of bikers to marvel at the many attractions on offer, this could only mean one thing…Brackley Festival of Motorcycling was in town!

After a few days of rain and miserable weather the sun was thankfully shining over Brackley, the perfect festival conditions, meaning motorcycle enthusiasts arrived to their thousands.

It was early Sunday morning and the bikes were lined up, engines revving, ready for the annual ride out. The festival had kicked off and it was time to make the day one to remember!

Motorcycle Clubs

Devitt was proud to be supporting the Motorcycle Club area for a third year running and this year the guys were out in full force! Each and every club in attendance had an impressive display of their favourite bikes and it was great to meet with such passionate and friendly motorcyclists. If you you’re not part of a motorcycle club then we strongly recommend you look into joining one…the adventures and stories these guys have are incredible!

The classic racers

One of the main attractions from the day? Well it has to be the classic bikes and may we add, they were even more impressive than last year!

The high street was home to this iconic display, the crowds were treated to an array of Italian makes from the 1950s, 60s and 70s.


Yet again the festival was buzzing with attractions to keep families and bikers alike entertained. Visitors saw the return of the famous Wall of Death, an impressive fair ground came to town, Steve Colley was back with his incredible stunt show, ‘Josie and the Outlaw’ returned to entertain the crowds with their rockabilly, blues and 50’s sounds plus much much more!
