Veteran sidecar manufacturers Watsonian are throwing a shrimp on the barbie. Or, more likely, a hamburger. The Cotswold based company, who have been in production for over 100 years, are opening their doors next month for a BBQ and the chance to sneak a peak at their factory.
As well as roasting local produce, visitors will be offered the chance to see how a sidecar is made and even take a sidecar driving skills test on the factory’s own obstacle course – a prize will be awarded to the best driver. There will also be Royal Enfield motorcycles and Peugeot scooters to test ride on the day as Watsonian are one of their franchised dealers (just bring your bike gear and your driving license!)
Free parking is available on site and prizes will be awarded for the outfit and solo bike that have been ridden from the furthest distance. Visit Watsonian on Saturday 28th June between 10am-4pm – call O1386 7OO9O7 or visit www.watsonian-squire.com for details.
