Isle of Wight 2023 with ScooterNova 39

Now that ScooterNova magazine #39 is on its way to subscribers and all the best scooter shops, it’s time for us to pack our camping stuff onto our scooters for the ride to the Isle of Wight Scooter Rally this Bank Holiday weekend.  Edition 39 is hot

off the press so we’ll be packing the latest magazine too, filled to bursting with stunning scooters as well as national and international rally reports, test riding new kits and machines…

For rally details click on the rally patch here:

Official scooter rally patches, T-shirts and other merchandise will be available from the Crusader stall on the rally campsite at Sandown Airport.

The scooter rally patch features the multi trophy-winning custom Lambretta, Breaking Rocks In The Hot Sun, owned and ridden all over the country by Gary.  This stunning machine was featured in ScooterNova Edition 15, so you can read all about the inspiration and work that went into building this ‘Best of Show’ scooter.

So what can you expect? Edition 39 cover star is this stunning custom Lambretta ‘Dream Stealer’. Jason’s amazing scooter debuted at ScooterExpo2 earlier this year. Inspired by the iconic SpiritWalker, painted by DDK Airbrushing and built very carefully by Rob at Simply Retro, you can read all about it and marvel at the level of detail that has gone into this machine.

In this Edition you’ll find reports from Vespa World Days in Switzerland, National Scooter Rallies at Big 7 and Aberystwyth, Australian Vespa Days and Euro Lambretta hosted this year by LCGB in Lincoln, another international edition!

Another event reviewed in this magazine is the Grand Tootle.  Held on the Isle of Man, this event included riding some of the legendary TT course as well as exploring some of the Scooter Week routes and even a road usually closed to traffic.
We’ve even managed to squeeze in some of the latest scooter products available and coming soon…
While you’re on the island, if you see some scooterists wearing a red ScooterNova bag over their shoulder, they will have copies of the latest magazine for sale, so don’t be shy.
We’ll have some of the last few 2023 pin badges, some of our popular t-shirts for scooter riders, a few keycases to keep your scooter scratch free, and more scooter goodies!  Some of the scooter shops trading on the scooter rally site at Sandown will also have the new ScooterNova magazine in stock so you can buy any necessary spares and have a good read.
Have a safe ride folks and we’ll see some of you this weekend!
