Bikers'Festival A motorbike event cut out … for the ‘bikers!
When setting up the first edition of the Bikers’Festival on the weekend of 12th and 13th August, DG Sport clearly had the intention of focusing the spotlight on the motorbike world over two days, while offering the numerous fans of two-wheeled machines a unifying event, in tune with the times and generator of passion. Judging by the Bikers’Festival billboard, the mission has been blithely accomplished…
Obviously, all that remained to be done to complete the set up was to do everything possible to make the ‘bikers feel at home more than ever when reaching the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. The facilities on offer in the first place include a special entrance for spectators arriving on motorbikes! Entry combined with an absolutely free parking. Better still, a left luggage will be set up at the event’s nerve centre, that is to say the Bikers’Café, in the Eau Rouge lounges!
A Bikers’Café which will be the focal point par excellence, with no less than three different exhibitions. In collaboration with the Spirit of Speed association, Giacomo Agostini, guest of honour at the Bikers’Festival, will be put in the spotlight, as will the career of Didier de Radiguès, 40 years after his victory in the Grand Prix de Belgique 250cc. The third exhibition will be on the theme of the enduro, focusing on the Belgian national team’s participation in the 1976 Six Days.
The Bikers’Café will also be the venue for the traditional and highly appreciated autograph sessions – not forgetting the selfies! – in the company of all the personalities present, such as Giacomo Agostini, Wayne Gardner, Didier de Radiguès, Michael Dunlop and others. The autograph sessions are scheduled to take place at 13.00hrs and 16.30hrs, both on Saturday and Sunday.
An information point for all the disciplines, an official Bikers’Festival shop, with T-shirts, stickers, book on the 100 years of the Circuit, access to the Parade on the old track, DG Sport has made matters easier by bringing everything together in one single place. Which means that the Bikers’Café will be one of the weekend’s privileged locations!
There is only one thing left to do: make the most of it!
