Saying Farewell to the Forshaw Collection
A collection of more than 30 iconic Speedway racing motorcycles spanning more than 90 years is set to leave the Museum this October. The motorcycles, which were loaned to us in 1997 by the late Richard Forshaw, will be put up for auction at Bonhams later this year. September marks the last time the collection will be together and the final opportunity for visitors to the Museum to appreciate the famous pieces of motor racing history.
To celebrate the collection and mark its farewell, the Museum will be holding special talks on Fridays at 11:30am and 2:30pm in September given by Haynes Motor Museum Collections Volunteer, David Hellier, a former mechanic himself. For more information on the talks please call us on 01963 440804
The Museum’s Forshaw Speedway collection will be replaced by a brand-new exhibition in 2023, giving visitors the opportunity to look back at life on two wheels throughout the ages.
