After two years at Lincoln, the BMF Show returns to its traditional home at the East of England Showground, now known as Peterborough Arena. To celebrate, the organisers have arranged a weekend long line-up of exciting attractions for motorcycle enthusiasts from September 14th - 16th.

This year, the BMF Tailend Show is hosting the Vertical Trix European Stunt Competition - with 30 top riders competing over the whole weekend in the following events: Individual Freestyle (the main event), Sickest Trick, Longest Stoppie, Freestyle Drift/Burnout. The competition will be fierce, with some of the world’s most talented stunt riders performing amazing tricks.

The ‘Best In Show’ makes its first appearance at the BMF Tailend Show this year, with classes for: Custom, Best Rat, 3 Wheeler, Sports/Superbike, Streetfighter, Chopper/Engineered and Classic/ Vintage.

The ACU are returning for the final round of their 1000cc Sidecar Championship with not one but TWO races on Saturday 15th. And the way the racing has been this season means the title WILL be decided on the track!

Even the Moped Enduro have something new to bring to the Tailend: a revised track layout to make the emphasis on the riders' skill rather than all-out speed.

Live Music

After an extremely successful introduction at the May Show, there will be a great line up of Live Music in the Blues, Booze 'N' Bikers bar on Friday evening, Saturday afternoon and evening.

There'll also be a full-on rock-tastic line up on the main stage, headlined by All Right Now on the Friday, with Jester, Nighon Maiden and Self Titled. Performing on the Saturday evening will be Vankwish, E11even, The Band From County Hell and, headlining, it’s the wonderfully crazy Dr & The Medics with full show.

As ever, there is the usual chance to pick up a great bargain or buy early Christmas presents with an abundance of trade stands offering fantastic deals on all kit, helmets and accessories.

All this promises to make the BMF Tailend Show a fantastic end of season party. And to top it all, the ticket prices have been reduced from last year’s prices with advanced Day Tickets from just £8.00 for BMF members and £14.00 for non-members and children under 16 get in for free.
