Check out this year's International Scooter Rally

The VFM Scooter Collective is set to host its annual International Scooter Rally on the Isle of Wight next month.

Visitors wishing to see some of the most innovative and artistic vespa and scooter designs in the world should head along to Ryde between August 23rd and 26th, where two-wheel enthusiasts from across the globe will be congregating at one of the biggest scooter events of the year.

What's more, the Isle of Wight Custom Scooter Show will form a major part of the festivities on the Sunday (August 24th), where hundreds of modified vespas, lambrettas and other vehicles will be displayed to the masses.

A range of awards will be handed out to those showing their vehicles, including prizes for best of show, best modifications or accessories, best oddity, best engraving, best plating, best custom vespa/lambretta and much more.

It promises to be a real treat for all scooter lovers and the spectacle does not stop there, as entertainment including live bands and groups will also help to keep visitors in the party spirit throughout the weekend.

Tickets can be purchased either in advance or at the show itself and will cost £27 per person for full-weekend camping access. A party for festivalgoers is to be held at the Ice Arena on both Friday and Saturday nights, while the weekend's activities will culminate with a massive round-the-island ride out for entrants and guests alike.

However, the International Scooter Rally is not the only big event being organised by VFM this year - but it is the largest.

The Great Eastern End of Season Scooter Rally is set to be held in November and will see three nights of live entertainment including dancing and bands, while events are also scheduled to be held across many other parts of the UK in the coming months, including Mersea Island, Woolacombe and Bridlington.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801617537-ADNFCR
