Big 7 & ScooterNova 7

If you’re heading down to the Hop Farm in Tonbridge, Kent this weekend for the Big 7 National Scooter Rally, then don’t forget to pick your new copy of ScooterNova magazine in between having fun!
While we unfortunately can’t be in two places at once this weekend, our friends at the Vespa Club of Britain and Crusader Promotions will have both the latest edition 7 of ScooterNova magazine, along with various back issues too, should you be missing any.
And if you ask really nicely, they might even have some FREE ScooterNova stickers to give away as well! ;-)


And Vespa Club of Britain members, don’t forget that every copy of ScooterNova magazine you buy from your club stall at events means that there is money going back into the VCB to help the club along. It’s a win-win situation really, hey?

AND DON’T FORGET there is a competition in edition 7 to win a 5-speed Lambretta Clo5e Ratio gearbox and Malossi Vespa kit so you better pick up a copy soon to find out exactly how to enter!
So wherever you end up, ride safe and have a good weekend!

** ScooterNova is an independent scooter magazine, published bi-monthly by scooterists. Printed on to high quality paper, the articles are credible and in-depth, and cover the wide spectrum of classic Lambretta and Vespa scooters, as well as other, less known marques.
You can pre-order, buy and subscribe online here.

This weekend – the new ScooterNova at the rallies

As the year marches on and the weather improves, so the calendar fills up with more and more scooter events.
We can’t be at them all, but thanks to our friends and stockists, the new ScooterNova magazine will be available from various outlets this weekend, 11-13 May 2018.
First up is the Trojan SC 50th anniversary event in Cumbria, a scooters-only rally that we will be riding up to with as many copies of edition 7 as we can carry, along with some stickers and postcards too. Come and track us down over the weekend, easily identifiable by our red ScooterNova messenger bags.
Meanwhile down in Leicestershire the Vespa Club of Britain will be attending Phoenix Nights 13 and their stall will include not only the brand new edition 7 of ScooterNova, but a few back issues as well for anyone needing to catch up.
Kings Scooter Workshop will also be trading at this event, another ScooterNova magazine stockist, and there is also a good chance young Serena will be out and about there too, promoting ScooterNova, again identifiable by her (blue) ScooterNova messenger bag packed full of magazines!

There is also the JB Tuning Classic Scooter Shop Open Day on Saturday 12 May, down in Essex. Another stockist of ScooterNova magazine, JB Tuning are having a dyno shoot-out, putting on a free BBQ, and offering test rides on their Casa Performance UK SSR265 shop demonstrator.
If you’ve not read about it yet, edition 7 of ScooterNova magazine has a review of the SSR engines as well as talking with two customers about why their buying these motors. The results may surprise you!

Finally, thank you to all who stopped by our stall at Tenby Scooter Rally last weekend to say hello, buy the latest edition and renew their subscriptions. A big hello also to those who we met for the first time, including the many new subscribers. A great rally in a lovely town and wonderful weather to ride home in too (thanks to the Mansfield Monsters SC for carrying our merchandise in their back-up van).
For those who can’t make it out this weekend, you can of course buy ScooterNova magazine online here, or check out our website for details of your nearest stockist.
Whatever you do and wherever you go, ride safe and have fun!

Margaret Farquhar

We are sad to announce the recent passing of Margaret Farquhar, Honorary Life Vice President of the Vespa Club of Britain, who began her scootering days back in 1952 and didn’t hang up her crash helmet until the 21st century.

Margaret was later employed by Douglas Motorcycles of Bristol to work for the Vespa Club, later going on to hold numerous committee positions, leading in her honorary lifetime title. A full obituary can be found on Scootering magazine’s website.
