Thousands of bikers celebrated Suffolk’s biggest bike show’s 25th birthday in style this weekend at Trinity Park.
Hosted by the Copdock Classic Motorcycle Club, the highly anticipated event saw guests camping outside the park the night before – and hundreds queued to get in at 9.30am.
Six-time world champion Jim Redman was among guests at the one-day show, some of whom had travelled there from as far away as Europe.
Mr Redman notched up four consecutive 350cc World Championships from 1962-1965, and in 1964 he became the first rider in history to claim three Grand Prix victories in one day.
Special guests the Two Bros Stunt Team and the Moto Stunts International team – whose members include Britain’s top female motorcycle stunt rider – showed off their skills in the grand ring to hundreds of spectators yesterday.
Riders also braved Ken Fox’s Wall of Death, which is one of only two shows of its kind left in the country.
Its stunts saw bikers lift 18ft off the ground onto a vertical circular wall.

Yesterday’s event is expected to have raised thousands for similar appeals.
