MOTORCYCLE GRAND PRIX LEGENDS


In its 73-year long existence the FIM Motorcycle Road Race World Championship hosted some extraordinary grand prix racing bikes. MV Agusta, Gilera, Mondial, Moto Guzzi, Benelli and NSU won in the ‘50’s with rumbling 4-stroke machines while East-German manufacturer MZ produced brought highly efficient 2-stroke technology to the world stage only for Suzuki to perfect it. Meanwhile ‘privateer’ tuners like Bridgestone, Seel, Bartol and Condor entered their own creations. In the top class, thundering single-cylinders from Norton, Velocette and Moto Guzzi eventually surrendered to Gilera’s, Honda’s and MV Agusta’s multi-cylinder engines; genuine megaphone marvels. Eventually 2-stroke technology perfected by the Japanese got the upper hand in all Grand Prix divisions which lasted well into the new millennium. Motorcycle Legends will run a full grid of genuine GP bikes from the ‘50’s up to the late ‘90’s.

All motorcycles are of the type raced in Grand Prix and of period appearance. The prospect of competition has lured some of the famous stars of the past into competing with IHRO. However it is the vast majority of ‘ordinary’ classic racers which has allowed the classic bike racing series to prosper. With a rider base of over 100 active competitors spread throughout Europe at accessible venues, IHRO looks set to continue providing the sights and sounds of yesteryear for modern race audiences.
