Les Newman Run 1st and 2nd August

The 2020 Les Newman Run will be held Saturday/Sunday 1st and 2nd August, starting at Bishopstone near Swindon. The Run will take place on Sunday 2nd August, with a shorter run and evening social event on Saturday 1st August. The organiser will be Chris Fisher. Further details in the spring issue of Beaming.



THE TESTERS RUN 15th & 16th August 2020

The Wolverhampton motorcycle manufacturers Sunbeam and AJS each had a team of Testers. In the 1920’s and early 1930’s these Testers had various routes over which they tested the Companies motorcycles; the longest of these routes was from Wolverhampton to Dinas Mawddwy in Mid-Wales and back for Sporting machines. As a tribute to these motor cycling pioneers we follow, as near as modern roads will allow, the original route on motorcycles of the period.

Further details and entry forms will be posted when available.

Organiser David Spencer

The West Midlands Group

The West Midlands Group is now meeting at the Royal Oak, 70 Compton Road, Wolverhampton, WV3 9PH. Compton Road is one of the major roads out of Wolverhampton , going west.


The Royal Oak is a very motorcycle-friendly pub – there’s even some Sunbeam pictures on the walls - and on the 24th June they are hosting a Motorcycle Day. The beer is very good and the staff were very keen to have us there when we met at the Sunbeam Ale re-launch event at the brewery.

We meet on the third Thursday of alternate months. The meeting is very informal, and you can arrive any time between 7p.m and 9p.m. Everyone within reach of Wolverhampton, and beyond, is very welcome.
