Two brand new BMW S1000RR machines will be on display along with a number of Harley Davidson machines, with Royal Enfield, Norton and Ballymena Honda also providing bikes.

Race team bosses Philip Neill, Tim Martin and John Burrows will also field questions about the season ahead.

A large variety of stands offer memorabilia, photographs and an auto jumble plus an auction will also be held on Saturday.

The show will take place from 10am-5pm. Admission is only £5 and proceeds will go towards missionary projects.
