We have just received the statement below from the LCGB and VFM:
“Hello People in Scooter World…
“After general debate at the British Scooter Rallies Association AGM (held at Bridlington), and further discussions between VFM* and the Lambretta Club of Great Britain Committee who are the organisers of the BSRA Trade & Custom Show /Scooter Rally, it has been decided that this event will continue in Bridlington for the forthcoming 2018 Rally Season. After which it will alternate yearly with a venue in the NorthWest.
“This will fulfil a geographical need for a National event in the Northwest, establish a change in the national calendar, and possibly make things a bit more fluid (potentially in the future), even allowing us to return to Bridlington in the Summer months.
“It has been the same team of Scooterists organising this event for 20+ years. We thank everyone for their support, and look forward to a big party at the Spa in 2018 to ring in the changes.”
“LCGB/VFM Scooter Collective” So folks, we’ll see you in Brid in 2018 – 26-28 October!
Yes finally, a new video to watch! But first apologies for the abnormally quiet period from us but we’ve had a few exciting things going on in the background that we’ll be able to share with you Continue reading →
It’s a long way off, with many miles to cover before August, but with an end of June deadline on winning AAA tickets, we thought we’d share this early. We haven’t missed many Isle of Wight rallies over the years so it’s interesting to look back at how it’s evolved; from a basic field full of like-minded friends to an island wide festival and (almost) back again. With music festivals almost every weekend in the summer, it’s not just the entertainment that attracts so many. There’s no denying that it certainly is a spectacle to see so many scooters all in one place.

Number 7 in the BSRA Best Supporting Member Championship and rally number 18 in the LCGB Riders Championship, scooter riders from all over will be there to enjoy the sights and the smell of two stroke as our small wheels invade the Isle of Wight this August Bank Holiday.
We can’t wait and have packed our scooters already, but for those wanting last-minute information before setting off, here’s a reminder about what to expect over the next few days at what is probably the largest scooter rally of its kind in the world! Continue reading →
For a number of years now, the main organisers of the Isle of Wight Scooter Rally, VFM, have negotiated a discounted ferry crossing via the Red Funnel ferry company. Now rival ferry operators Wightlink have woken up and are trying to jump on the bandwagon, but their offer is not all it seems to be… Continue reading →
Legendary scooter rider, Mod, promoter and DJ Tony Class was laid to rest on 27 May after losing his battle with cancer.
Tony Class’s funeral, May 2014.
A larger than life character, Tony had been part of the scooter scene since the 1970s and was known by many Mods and scooterists nationwide for his work.
It was a privilege to have known Tony over the years and attend his funeral which saw his Lambretta GP being ridden behind the horse-drawn hearse, and hundreds of scooterists following causing chaos around the A4 in West London as we all arrived at the church in Chiswick – Tony would have loved that!
RIP Mr Page (aka Tony Class) and thank you for all the good times.
On Saturday 23 November Sotheby’s in New York held a charity auction in aid of RED, a charity founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver in 2006 to engage business and people in the fight against AIDS.
Designers Jony Ive (design boss at Apple) and Marc Newson collaborated with musician Bono to organise the charity auction and one of the 44 lots was a replica of the Lambretta ridden by Jimmy in the film Quadrophenia. To add to this, Continue reading →
