As the themed Bonanza tradition continues, 2017 saw the celebration of all things Ducati and the Romsey Grass Track Era.
2018 will coincide with the 90th birthdays of Vincent H.R.D. and Motorcycling Australia (MA) and to celebrate, the 2018 Bonanza will be themed all things Vincent H.R.D. A full range of each of the Vincent models will be on show along with the Horner Brother’s legendary Irving Vincent race bikes. Also celebrated next year, is arguably Australia's greatest export to World Speedway – the late Neil Street.
The SIBBB has once again secured The Three Times World Speedway Champion Jason Crump, grandson of Neil Street.

Other top international riders plus many examples of the Neil Street produced SR4 Speedway Motor will be present during the Bonanza at the Rock Oil Speedway, Dirt Track section of the venue. Rosco Holden's "Holden On Tight" Mini-Bike Reunion, Trials riders will be back at the Broadford track, along with BSA Bantam Racers with Ross Martin.
