On top of that there is live action and you can see John McGuinness, Troy Corser, Neil Hodgson and Chris Walker go head-to-head in the Michelin live action race: Slide.

Why else do we go to show’s as big as this? For a bargain! There is a huge list of exhibitors who will be packing there stands with everything you could want, at huge discounts…. so now it’s time to stock up!
The Exclusive Barry Sheene collection will be heading to the show and 2017 will be showcasing a rare collection of memorabilia from British motorcycling hero Barry Sheene, including race leathers, helmets, FIM World Championship medals and four of the star’s factory Suzuki’s – including his 1976 and 1977 title winning machines!
London born Barry Sheene who grew up Holborn, is arguably one of the most popular motorcycle racers of all time and the 2017 Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show will be honouring the capital’s greatest racer with a special collection of memorabilia spanning his career.
Fans of ‘Bazza’ will be able to see his 1971 Suzuki XR05 TR500, or the ‘Seeley Suzuki’ as it has become known. Raced by the star at the start of his career, he would later claim it to be the best-handling machine he ever rode. Also on display will be the 1979 Works Suzuki XR27, which was raced in the now infamous British Grand Prix at Silverstone where Barry and American Kenny Roberts traded places (and hand signals!) to the very end.
The real highlight however will be the machines the Londoner won his two world titles on. Still the last machines to power a British rider to a premier class title, the 1976 factory Suzuki XR14 and the 1977 XR14A will be pride of place on the display, allowing visitors to get up close and personal with genuine motorcycling history.
