Video: Scooter Mart Bermuda Charge Charity Ride-Out & Auto Show
The organisers of the 2019 Scooter Mart Bermuda Charge thank the motoring community at large, and the visitors and vendors who supported the show with their presence on Sunday.
More than 2,000 people enjoyed the best of Bermuda’s motoring culture, on display in the free Auto Show held at beautiful Clearwater Beach. Twenty-five vendors showcased their products, services and vehicles to enthusiastic crowds; car and bike exhibits ranged from classic and custom to modern electric.
At 2pm, the Charity Ride-Out brought a whole new level of energy to the show, as more than 150 riders and drivers took to the streets. A Police escort, assisted by marshals from the Bermuda Long Riders Motorcycle Club, guided the ride safely through a route which took in North Shore, Hamilton and South Shore, before returning to Clearwater. Registered charity Greenrock benefited with a $5 donation from every participant.
Spectators lined up along Cooper’s Island Road to cheer the St George’s Original Dancerettes as they welcomed back the riders with a glittering dance show. The event concluded with prizes and rewards for the best vehicles on display, and a raffle draw to win a brand new Scooter Mart Yamaha.
International guests from the North West 200, including former superbike champ Steve Plater, had lots of fun chatting with locals and finding out about Bermuda’s unique motoring heritage. They got further involved in the enjoyment of the day competing with the Bermuda Karting Club in a friendly challenge at the Rubis Southside Raceway!
Event Director David Cahill said: “We would like to publicly praise our motoring community, who have supported the event in so many ways. There were many volunteers and assistants involved, everybody pitched in and helped out with such impressive community spirit to deliver a beautiful day for Bermuda – we give our warmest thanks to one and all.”
