Ace at Ramsgate Sprint Revivial! 16/07/2015

Ace Cafe London, with stand and display, is privileged to be at the forthcoming Ramsgate Sprint Revival, over the weekend 15th & 16th August.
For 12 years, the Sunbeam Motor Cycle Club organised quarter-mile sprints along the Western Undercliff at Ramsgate. The events drew large crowds to see some of the giants of straight-line sport in the country perform. Eventually, speeds became too high on the slightly curved, sea front course with its unforgiving cast-iron railings and limited shut-off area, so Ramsgate passed into history. That was until this year!
Over the weekend of Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th August, and for the first time since 1968, the Undercliff will once again echo to the sound of race engines. A short course will allow demonstrations of bikes of the era, including a number that were stars of the original events, to evoke memories of times past. The chance to ride at this historic venue has been eagerly taken up by many riders, ensuring a fine variety of machinery will be seen and heard over the weekend.
On Government Acre, the clifftop area above the course, further attractions will include a static display of bikes organised by the East Kent Classic Motorcycle Club and Messham's Wall of Death will hopefully keep its spectacular action contained within its own smaller arena. The ‘Revival will not be just for enthusiasts, as a whole sixties scene will be re-created. There will be a funfair and performances from a top Elvis look-alike and 'The Revolvers', a sixties revival band, will provide a sound track for the weekend.
The Ramsgate Sprint Revival has the enthusiastic support of the local Council and admission to everything except the Wall of Death will be free. Ramsgate is well signposted and the event is at CT11 0HE.

NB: In addition to the above, a pair of tickets are up for grabs as raffle prizes at the Ace on Sunday 9th August, occasion of the cafe’s annual VMCC Day.  Spend £5 or more over the counter from 9.30am. Draw to be held at 3pm.

The pair of tickets are to spend the evening of Friday 14th August, from 7pm, with 6 x TT winner Jim Redman MBE, as he shares his racing career and experiences at The Odds, 142 High Street, Ramsgate, Kent, CT11 9TT.
