BENNETTS LIVE ARENA 

Donington Park's Melbourne Loop transforms into the "Bennetts Live Arena" to host a completely separate schedule over the whole Endurance Legends weekend focusing on some truly unique activities where show goers can take part in the action for themselves!  
 
Thanks to the Vintage MotorCycle Club everyone will be able to experience riding a range of true classic motorcycles, from early hand gear change machines from the early 1920s right through to motorcycles from the late 70s. 
 
In addition to riding some amazing classic bikes, spectators will also have the very rare opportunity to enjoy the thrill of some laps on a racing sidecar courtesy of British Historic Racing (the racing arm of the VMCC) . 
 
Towards the end of each afternoon, it's the turn of the clubs on display throughout each in the VJMC Show to leave their stands and burst into life to create the "Rolling Bike Show" on the Bennetts Live Arena  
TRY-A-CLASSIC-BIKE 
Thanks to the Vintage MotorCycle Club everyone will be able to experience riding a range of true classic motorcycles, from early early 1920’s hand change machines through to 1970’s Truimphs. 
 
Rides will be available on Saturday from 10am - 5:30pm and on Sunday from 10am - 4pm, with a break from 14:30-15:30 so everyone can enjoy the pit walk ahead of the Le Mans start of the 4hr endurance race! 
 
To take part, all riders will need to provide: 
a full motorcycle licence (without this you will not be able to partake) 
motorcycling clothing; helmet, gloves, boots, jacket and trousers (not jeans) 
the fee which is just £15 
 
You'll receive tuition and familiarisation of the machine and the controls, followed by a 15 minute session riding the Melbourne Loop! 
SIDECAR TAXI RIDES 
Thanks to British Historic Racing & SlowPhil of SideCar Radio you'll have the rare opportunity to experience some laps on a racing sidecar! 
 
BHR will aim to place you on the sidecar of your choice and do some laps on the world famous Melbourne Loop, not at race speeds but as fast as you can happily handle!  
 
Rides will be available on Saturday from 10am - 5:30pm and on Sunday from 10am - 4pm, with a break from 14:30-15:30 so everyone can enjoy the pit walk ahead of the Le Mans start of the 4hr endurance race! 
 
You will need to be properly attired which means full face helmet, one piece leathers, gloves and boots, and although there will be some leathers and helmets available to borrow it would be best to bring your own, but please make sure they are in good condition. 
 
Sidecar Taxi Rides are priced at just £15 per person and will include personal tuition before your laps of the Melbourne Bennetts Live Arena - and each experience will last for approximately 15 minutes!  
 
The sidecar teams are raising money during the event for Riley Clay For more information about Riley or the sidecars please contact Phil direct on 07730 784975 www.sidecarradio.co.uk
