Antwerp Custom Show & ScooterNova magazine

As our 2018 Casa Lambretta calendar flips over to March, we’ve got an Innocenti Lambro promotional photo to admire for the rest of the month.

Innocenti Lambro on Casa Lambretta Calendar – March 2018

Coincidentally, this weekend sees the Antwerp Custom Show taking place and their ‘theme’ for this year’s event is “3-wheeled scooters, sidecars, Apes & Lambros.”

ScooterNova magazine will also have a presence at the Antwerp Show this weekend, courtesy of the Lambro Club UK. The Club will have a fine display of three-wheelers in Belgium, including the rare and fabulous FB ‘Gelati’ 3-wheeler, as featured in edition 2 of ScooterNova magazine.

Our friends Scott and Jackie of the Lambro Club will have copies of all editions of ScooterNova for sale (including the brand new number 6), along with a limited range of merchandise including T-shirts and hoodies, so be sure to pop along and see them while at the show this weekend!

ScooterNova Rally Video Part 4

We’ve had a great summer riding to rallies that we’d like to share with you.

In part four we ride to Scotland for the national rally at Kelso, the south east national rally at Big 7, a jolly weekend with the Awfully Pleasant Scooter Association, our cheese and wine soiree by the seaside at Cleethorpes national rally (you can check out the separate video here), the LCGB’s Four Nations rally in scenic Shipson-on-Stour, Wales for the national rally in Llandudno and to York SC’s scooter only rally at Breighton Ferry.

We probably bumped into most of you along the way, so hopefully we caught you and your scooter on camera. If not there’s always the next video to check out…. Cheers!

Scooter Rallies 2017 – video round-up

Happy New Year one and all, we hope you had a good time over the festive period, whatever you did.
Towards the end of 2017 we decided once again to edit some of our ‘on board’ action camera video footage from the year’s riding and create a video to share with you all. Except that this year there was so much more footage that this will extend into four or five short clips instead!
Anyway, here is the first; we hope you enjoy it – you may even spot yourself and your scooter. The rest will follow later this week, so don’t forget to subscribe to our new YouTube Channel so you find out about new ScooterNova films as soon as they become available.

Edition 5 of ScooterNova magazine was published at the end of December 2017. To find your local stockist, buy or subscribe online click here.

Bridlington scooter rally – BSRA statement 

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! 

ScooterNova Magazine at Mersea Island

With two great rallies so close to each other there’s no point in unpacking much, so we’re refuelling our scooters and heading down to sunny Essex this weekend for Mersea Island scooter rally.

Over the weekend we’ll be sharing stall space with the Lambretta Club of Great Britain, helping them out too. We will of course have the brand new edition 3 of ScooterNova magazine, which coincidentally – as we will be with the LCGB – has a massive 12 page feature on the 70th anniversary of Lambretta, together with a selection of rare and unseen photographs from the Innocenti archives in the 1960s. I can assure you, no other scooter magazine has access to such images.

Of course there is plenty more inside edition three too, from a rusty eye-catching Vespa built on a budget to Part 2 of the ‘touring to Moscow’ story. We have an exclusive on the Lambretta Siluro record breaker which was recently recommissioned for Goodwood, and we pit a luxury vintage Germany scooter against an Italian rival to see what was the best electric start machine from the 1950s. There is a gorgeous Vespa GS that you can’t help but admire and we are also proud to have yet another exclusive feature on a custom scooter that deservedly won a number of trophies at the Isle of Wight last week, Discworld. Put simply, ScooterNova is 100 pages of quality magazine with credible articles throughout and selective advertising!

Speaking of the IOW, our ‘peep hole’ photograph head shot concept went down a storm on the rally site at Smallbrook stadium, and Colchester DVLC have invited us to bring it along to Mersea Island too, so all those who missed out last weekend will get a chance to join in the fun in Essex! (**note to parents, PLEASE don’t let you kids climb on or swing from the framework, because it damages it and we can’t afford to be replacing it on a regular basis – thank you!).

So come along and say hello over the weekend, feel free to browse through a magazine (we’ll have all three issues with us) to see what the fuss is about if you’ve not yet seen ScooterNova for yourself, and have a safe ride!

Isle of Wight scooter rally 2017

I think it is to fair to say that from a personal point of view, this year’s Isle of Wight scooter rally was one of my favourites. It’s over 30 years since I first rode over there for a scooter rally and aside from the great weather, the journey, the laughs, the scooters, the fun and so much more went together perfectly to make Continue reading
