Festival & Carnival


Breaking News - Race Bikes To Feature At Two Wheel Tuesday

Reg Richardson – British Champion Motorcyclist from the Classic Era of the sport – is no longer racing the likes of Barry Sheene  but he is still very much involved with racing today.

We are very pleased that Reg, as part of the Mills Racing Team, will be bringing three current racing bikes along to Two Wheel Tuesday.

You may want to bring your earplugs as these machines when they are started up are as loud as they are powerful!

As well as showcasing the bikes, the evening is an opportunity for potential riders to see what is involved in racing them – because Reg is also looking to strengthen the team for the future – and would love to include some local Staffordshire talent

If you been to a previous  Stone fesival soapbox derby you’ll know what a great day out it is and won’t want to miss this one.
