50 VINTAGE MOTORCYCLES SHOW AT THIS YEAR'S ROSS MARKET DISPLAY

The weather was much kinder than in 2008 for the late May Bank Holiday, which was great news for Gordon Lucas of Lucas Motorcycles, as on this particular holiday each year he hosts a vintage motorcycle display under the canopy of Ross Market House. Last year the weather was horrendous, keeping many exhibitors and spectators away. This year however, although not sunny, the weather was dry and there were some fifty proud vintage motorcycle owners at the event who were keen to both show off their own machines and admire those belonging to others.

Gordon has been running these exhibitions for approximately twelve years, beginning with Ross Gala Day, which, as Gordon put it 'seems to have quietly slipped away,' but the motorcycle displays have continued, attracting regulars with Triumphs, Nortons, Harley Davidsons, a Dingo and believe it or not, this year there was a C5 on display, belonging to local man Steve Szollosi, who encouraged people to 'sit in and try it.'

Gordon, along with Chris of the Gloucestershire Norton Owners Club and local enthusiast, Steve spoke to us about the event for WNTV News. Gordon was delighted with the turn out not only of the motorcyclists, but also the many members of the public who stopped to take a look.

The better weather this year made it possible for the display to spread to the market apron.

Quite a collection of vintage machines.
