There's no sweeter music to the ears of old British race bike fans than hearing an iconic motorcycle engine brought back to life. Combine it with the small of burning rubber, and its like they are back trackside instead of in our popular Fire Up Paddock.
OK we know that it probably isn't very PC these days but surely this is.
This is what our sort of classic/historic racing is all about, so here's our official warning - unsilenced racing engines bellowing through open megaphone exhausts may damage your hearing, but once heard never forgotten and you'll undoubtedly want to hear them again and again for as long as you can!
The Race Bike Fire-up Paddock is situated alongside the Hall 1 to Hall 3 link and will take place each day just after lunchtime, full details in your showguide.
Check back to find out which stunning two-wheelers will be fired up this year but for now, click on these two links for the sounds of the Guzzi V8 and the MV Agusta 500cc recorded by fans last year and posted on UTube.
