$200,000 Purse Offered for the 100th running of the Loudon Classic

North East Motorcycle Road Racing (NEMRR) and the New Hampshire Motor Speedway are excited to announce the purse for the 100th running of the Loudon Classic, the longest running motorcycle road race in the USA.  This landmark event will offer an unprecedented $200,000 purse and will serve as the culmination of the 2023 Laconia motorcycle week, which gathers nearly 300,000 people from across the nation each year.  This historic event will run from June 16-18, 2023.

NEMRR series director Noelle Doucette noted, “We knew it was essential to attract the absolute best riding talent in the country.  We want the 100th running of the Loudon Classic to be a truly special contest that honors the history and prestige of this event.  With the largest purse offered of any motorcycle road race in the USA, we’ve already got many of the very best riders and teams planning to attend.”

The Loudon Classic will consist of  three days of racing with NEMRR races on Friday and Sunday with the four professional classes running on Saturday the 17th.  The Loudon Classic will run under NEMRR Middleweight GP rules and will also allow all machines legal for the MotoAmerica Supersport class.  The formal structure and purse for the three support classes will be announced before January 1, 2023.  Spectators can expect an immersive experience reminiscent of years past, as well as the potential return of Loudon Classic features like spectator camping and an expansive vendor/motorcycle demo experience area.

The $200,000 purse will pay out 30 places, and we believe the $40,000 winners take is the largest prize ever offered for a road race in the USA.  Complete rules and participant information packages will be available in December.  Interested racers and teams can visit the NEMRR website at www.nemrr.com or contact the series at [email protected].
