Mondello Motorcycle Expo Live Action Show Launched

Mondello Motorcycle Expo Irish Motorcycle enthusiasts will have a new form of Motorcycle show to look forward to in 2010 with the launch of the 'Mondello Motorcycle Expo'. The May 30th event will cater for all forms of motorcycling, both on and off road, with a huge emphasis on live action.

'Mondello Motorcycle Expo' will be a single day event featuring track and motocross racing, stunts, trials demonstrations, minimoto's, motorcycle club parade laps and a large exhibition area. The exhibition will encompass indoor facilities including the Mondello Park hospitality suites, pit garages and motorsport museum, and outdoor display areas in the circuits paddock, perimeter and off-road areas.

Already confirmed for the expo are BMW Motorrad and Yamaha with other manufacturers to be announced. Joining them in the exhibition area will be motorcycle clubs, including road and short circuit race organisers, touring clubs and vintage and classic owners clubs. Alongside the motorcycle exhibits there will also be a substantial trade area and additional show attractions which will be announced over the coming weeks.

On track action will centre around a pair of invitation races which will include an added twist and these will be backed up by stunt riding from Gary Rothwell and some more sedate classic bike and bike owners club parade laps. Out in the Mondello Park Off-Road Centre, motocross demonstrations will take place along with quad and off-road motorcycle tests. Rounding out the action will be a trials riding demonstration and some minimoto action.

Show visitors will have a lot to keep them busy and the added attraction of the opportunity to put their own road bike, classic or custom machine on display and enter the 'Bike of the Show' competition. The event will take place from 11:00 till 17:00 with non-stop track activity. Tickets will be available on the day at a cost of €15.00 for adults with children under 16 free.
