Wentworth Pewter specially commissioned trophies for Donington Park classic motorcycle race

If you know your Velocette Viper from your Vincent Black Shadow, you may well have heard of The Classic Racing Motorcycle Club(CRMC). The club holds races and parades for classic racing motorcycles from a bygone era, and we’re honoured that they commission Wentworth Pewter to make their handcrafted trophies and an array of other gifts.

There’s something about a classic motorcycle – style, tradition and a beautifully designed product – that draws aficionados from all over the world. It’s an approach to craftsmanship that the team at Wentworth Pewter are familiar with. We make each last-a-life-time piece in pewter by hand at our factory in Sheffield and we’re proud to have customers across the globe, from North America to Australia.

John Davidson, Vice Chairman, CRMC explains:

“The CMRC is for classic motorcycle owners who have an absolute passion for a quality product when it comes to their machines. When their motorcycle wins a race or championship it’s important to reflect that sense of style and design in the awards and gifts we give out.  I own some of Wentworth’s products that are over 25 years old and they look as good as the day they were made.”

Here are just some of the events the CRMC have got lined up for this summer including the Donington Classic Motorcycle Festival, the biggest Classic Motorcycle race meeting in the UK. Of course if you’re taking part, you may well come home with one of our prized, handcrafted trophies or even a claret jug, Quaich or goblet.
