ThundersportGB is ecstatic to announce it will be hosting 2 of the 4 GP Originals Championship at our Brands Hatch and Donington Park events during 2019!

 

Race your 250cc or 350cc
Post Classic Grand Prix two-stroke!
 

 

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.

 

GP Originals has four of the best UK circuits booked for 2019 and they have an incredible gang of sponsors along for the ride!

 

This means a cash prize fund of £6,975 which riders will fight for right down to 5th in both 250 and 350 classes. Competitors over 55 can also win cash down to 3rd in their own field... At the end of the season riders in the 250, 350 and 'Masters' classes will share a significant cash pot, plus valuable product vouchers from various series sponsors.

 

It's not all just about winners either, they have over £10,000 worth of products, vouchers and incentive rewards to distribute throughout the field. From simply getting your entry in early, to special achievements. There is something to benefit every race budget.

GP Originals co-ordinater Sian Brooks says:

"Over the years at the more established Clubs and Series, bigger forks and later fairings crept in on these machines and the bikes started to lose their heritage – so, our aim is to bring it all back to look how they used to be and build GP Originals into a showcase of much more period machines within the constraints of availability and current racing regulations.

Back in the day, no-one ever bought a GP bike and raced it out of the box, so we allow typical period upgrades. For example: magnesium wheels and aftermarket frames by Maxton, Spondon or Harris amongst others. #66 is Cameron Harris, the son of Lester Harris who made the frames
The racing experience of competitors on our grid span five decades. Derek Skinner and Dave Cooper, for example, have been riding these two-stroke machines for more than 75 seasons between them. Our line-up boasts several Manx Grand Prix winners including Glen English, Ewan Hamilton, Gary Vines and Chris Moore.
 
-Everyone is on treaded Avon Tyres, no slicks or wets. One tyre for all conditions-
 
I am pretty sure this is the biggest, dedicated grid for post classic two-strokes anywhere – I’m cautious about saying 'the World' but I haven’t heard of anything else like it anywhere. All the the other options are mixed-races.
I'm delighted that at the time this post was going to press, we already had twelve 250's entered into ThundersportGB Brands Hatch!
This is quite a big deal as there’s not been such an interest in the 250s for years. This can be attributed to the quality of the riders last year, they were all fast and Gary won the race in Portimao outright. Eclipsing the big horsepower of the two fastest 350s in the country. Everyone loved watching Fernando who was very fast and entertaining – he has Rich Grinling out on his bike this year and will be with him at every round.
Steve and I have Martin Wimmer helping us out – winner of three Grand Prix and a factory Yamaha rider on these TZ250Ls we both ride. He is aiming to be at Brands.
#4 Mike Farrall’s Maxton is a project with his great friend Grand Prix racer and 8-times TT winner, Charlie Williams. The bike replicates Charlie’s original livery. Charlie is usually with Mike at the meetings so hopefully will also be there.
Procuring 2 of ThundersportGB's rounds to display our wares is yet another feather in our cap, it is probably the best run motorcycle racing organisation available today...  Many thanks to  the Thundersport team for accommodating us!"
