The 1970s and early ’80s was an exciting time for motorcycle Grand Prix – probably the last time privateers had a genuine chance of mixing it with works bikes. GP Originals presents the sights, sounds and smells of this Post Classic racing era.
The Series has been inspired by the motorcycles featured in the Hailwood Trophy. The prestigious event is held at the Goodwood Members’ Meeting and highlights GP machines such as the ubiquitous Yamaha TZ250 and TZ350.
Post Classic racing – over £18k of cash & prizes throughout the field
GP Originals has four of the UK’s best circuits on the calendar for 2019 and we have an incredible gang of sponsors along for the ride. With a cash prize fund of £6,975 riders will fight for funds down to 5th in both 250 and 350 classes. Competitors over 55 can also win cash down to 3rd. At the season end the top three in 250, 350 and Masters will share £675 plus vouchers from Teng Tools and Motocarb and they’ll raise a toast with Titanic Brewery beers.
It’s not all about race winners. We have £10,800 worth of vouchers, products and incentive rewards to distribute throughout the field. From simply getting your entry in early to special achievements, there’s something to benefit every race budget.

We are the only dedicated post classic 250 and 350 two-stroke GP series – therefore there are rules! Love them or loathe them, rules keep the racing competitive and the bikes ‘in period’. We keep a keen ear on what our riders are looking for and there is a clear message that our kind of people want tighter period style machines.
