The race format for all competition will be gentleman's racing, in four classes and grouped largely by production era. Most of our riders are 40 plus representing a vast range of industries and influence and enjoy displaying and riding their classic motorcycles.

Special hospitality is available to all participants at no cost during each event and is included with an HMGP membership. Interested parties who are owners of classic or vintage bikes, or those who own former AMA, World Superbike, MotoGP, WERA and CCS bikes are encouraged to join HMGP and show and/or race their vintage bikes at future events.
