Show off your retro pride and joy!
Old Skool Collectors Alert! On Sunday we will be hosting the WD40 Retro Show and Shine at the GT Bicycles Malverns Classic, Eastnor Deer Park, Ledbury, Herefordshire. HR8 1RL.
Entry is open to all bikes manufactured on or before 1998 and will be free to enter. Just turn up on the day at 08:30 in the main finish arena in front of the marquee with your pride and joy along with a rear wheel bike stand and a D type lock please.
Please note we will limit each person to enter no more than two bikes. The bikes will be displayed outside in the Jez Avery Stunt Show Arena or inside the large marquee if the weather is bad. We will then judge the bicycles down to the last ten and then the last three. Then choose the ‘Best in Show’ with the winner receiving the prized title and the prize money.
The prize fund for the ‘Best in Show’ will be a mouth-watering £1,000 courtesy of WD40. We have a display stand built that will securely display the winners bike for the rest of the day until 17:00. The first 100x people displaying a bike will receive a ‘Goody bag’ courtesy of WD40.

Please note if your star bike is lucky enough to win, you will not be allowed to enter that bike again at the Malverns Classic. It can only win once.
-Make sure your bike is from 1998 or older.
-Next year we will include bikes from 1999 or older.
-Please bring a rear wheel stand to display your bike ad a D type lock.
-You are allowed to display either one or two bikes.
-You are responsible for your bike and you display your bike at your own risk.
-Lock your back wheel with a D type lock to the crowd barriers if we are in the outside arena. If we are inside, still lock the back wheel with a D style lock just around the rear tyre to stop anyone rolling off with the bike in your absence.
-All bikes will be displayed behind rope/tape so as not to allow the admiring public to touch the bikes.
-We advise you to stand in front of the rope and your bike with the general public to allow all of the bikes to be viewed. This will also allow you to talk to any admirers.
-Once the competition is over for you, we advise you to exit the arena immediately with your bike and secure it. Please don’t lock it to the roof or the rear of your vehicle. Lock it securely inside your vehicle with D Locks and Cable Locks (around car seat frames etc..) if possible. Remember out of sight is out of mind.
-The judges decision is final.
-£1,000 will be paid by bank transfer within 24 hours to the winner.
-Good luck to everyone entering their prize and joy.
