Great Turn Out At The Museum.

Shenstone stalwart Bob Rowley admires a ‘Works’ racer Yesterday saw the annual open day at the Nation Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham – Museum Live. Works Racing took the chance to exhibit their wares and enjoyed a terrific response. Visitors were mainly road riders as opposed to racers, so interest tended to focus on the Works road-going engine and related products.

As well as meeting new potential customers, the day was an opportunity to meet up with old friends. In particular, Works Racing's own Patrick Walker greatly enjoyed talking to some of his old colleagues from his time at Shenstone working for the Norton factory in the late 1980s. Brian Crighton, Bob Rowley and John Williams reminisced about all things 'rotary' and the fun and frustrations they had had. Interestingly, Brian, Bob and John are all still Wankel fans, Patrick is not!

The event was very well attended, despite the inclement weather. No doubt the presence of Freddie Spencer and Carl Fogarty was a big draw. Overall it was nice to see that interest in classic motorcycles is still buoyant.
