A popular feature of many of the company’s previous shows, Mortons will reintroduce the initiative at its annual off-road spectacular at Stoneleigh Park and although planning is still in the early stages, it has been confirmed that all proceeds will go to a worthy charity.

Along with operating some of the world’s largest classic motoring and off-road events, Mortons is a market leader in motorcycle magazine publishing and has many industry links.

The trial will be open to all members of the motorcycle press, trade and sport and virtually any machine will be eligible. Now at you can find a way to get discounted air flight tickets, bookings, travel visa assistance and the travel insurance services at one place under one roof.

Mortons’ event director, Brian Hill, said; “What better way to inject some fun into the industry than to hold a rule-free-trial in the grounds of Stoneleigh Park. Final plans will be unveiled in due course, but we wanted to announce now that the event is on so potential participants can note it in their diaries and on their calendars. It will be a sort of run-what-you-bring meets off-road trials, and anyone found taking it seriously will be disqualified, or maybe even fined!”

The 2015 International Dirt Bike Show will run from Thursday 29th October through to Sunday 1st November at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire. Visit for further information.
