As part of their show, they will be presenting awards for certain categories who have taken part in the run.  

On Saturday, the Great Yarmouth Motorcyle Takeover will be joining forces with GY Wheels Festival, taking over the Sea Life Centre gardens with part of Marine Parade being closed off.

Visitors can ride in vintage style between the town and seafront display areas in a classic 1959 Spratts coach and enjoy a heritage guided tour to the town during their journey.
