UKBEG Buell Ulysses 10th Anniversary – Donington Grand Prix Collection.
Location and directions web site: here
Following a suggestion by Derek (delw) that we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the launch of the Buell Ulysses model in 2005, we’ve organised this informal UKBEG event which is being held at the Donington Grand Prix Collection.
It starts at 10.30am and is open ended, come and go as you please. We’d like as many Ulysses as possible to be there but, as with all UKBEG events, it’s open to every make and model of motorcycle.
There’s a café on the museum site and they serve hot and cold food.

Four halls, with over 130 exhibits, illustrate the history of motorsport from the turn of the 20th Century, where visitors can get close to the cars driven by such famous names as Nuvolari, Mansell, Prost, Moss, Fangio and Stewart.
The Donington Grand Prix Collection houses the largest collection of McLaren and Williams racing cars in the world (outside of their respective factories), and the only complete collection of Vanwalls.
In addition to the Grand Prix cars, part of The Wheatcroft Collection has also gone on display at the world famous Donington Grand Prix Collection. The first hall has been transformed to hold part of the collection 'never seen before in public'. A number of World War II vehicles and motorcycles have arrived at the museum and more are expected to join these vehicles throughout the coming year. Kevin Wheatcroft, the collections founder, said "The time is right to open the doors to some of these treasures. I have been badgered for many years to show these vehicles to the public and very much look forward to adding more vehicles as each month goes by".
