Adrenaline fueled guests competed against the clock on a customized Manx TT Super Bike racing game, which was created to resemble the new Bonneville bikes. Later in the evening, crowds gathered by the miniature Triumph factory, to watch some of Triumph’s most skilled engineers assemble a Bonneville Street Twin.

VIP’s sipped specially created cocktails by Milroy’s of Soho named with the event in mind, including; Smoking Cee – Gar, Bonnie Blend, Bettman, Turner, Bloor. Fourpure and 1936 beer were also served alongside canapés created by Street Kitchen.
