STOP PRESS : Jim Redman MBE: Guest of Honour at Romney Marsh Classic Show 26th June 2016


AJS
  • Romney Marsh Classic Motorcycle Show & Bikejumble: 10am Sunday 26th June 2016.
  • Just had news from Jim Redman, he'll be at our Summer classic Show at Hamstreet on Sunday 26th June. Feeling really honoured, as Goodwood is the same weekend but Jim's chosen to visit Romney Marsh instead!
  • Jim is Six Times World Champion and Six Times Isle of Man TT Winner. Jim is one of GPs most extraordinary characters, and a true legend of motorcycle racing. After migrating to South Africa, he started his racing career in the mid-fifties, and was awarded an MBE in 1964, the year that also saw him win three World Championships in a single day, a feat, to this day, matched only by Mike Hailwood.
  • Meet Jim in the marquee, where he will be available for question and answer & book-signing sessions. He sold out of his autobiography at Ardingly in October 2015, so make sure you don't miss out!
