If you wanna be the best, and if you wanna beat the rest!


Record Breakers – Last September 539 bikers broke the world record for the longest ever parade of Triumph motorcycles. Their entry fees went into a fund set up by a 29-year-old woman who has had a series of brain tumours since she was four.

Jessica Simpkin’s charity at the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre at Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre. has now raised more than £31,000 for further research into children’s brain tumours, their early diagnosis and new treatments. The event was organised by Staffordshire Triumph and closed a section of the A617 in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. Mostly newer Hinckley models were represented, however some older Meriden bikes were seen in the caravan too.

Jessica’s mother said: “There were lots of different people from all walks of life with problems themselves and they all came together that day, it was fantastic.”
