The 101st Loudon Classic will be held June 7-9, 2024, at New Hampshire Motor Speedway , in Loudon, New Hampshire, and is returning with an even better purse! Not only will the record-breaking $250,000 purse for the Classic be back, but in 2024 the Classic will also feature a $50,000 bagger class. This incredible pairing of feature races will give spectators the opportunity to again experience the top level of racing in the US for modern supersport machines and to now witness the thundering performance and exceptional engineering of Harley-Davidson and Indian machines in the bagger race.
Chris Ulrich, Vice President of Operations/Team Manager for Vision Wheel M4 ECSTAR Suzuki noted, “NEMRR did a great job putting on a professional event in 2023, and we’re excited for the prospect of returning again in 2024 to defend our Loudon Classic title.”
The June 7-9 dates makes for a new tradition as America’s oldest race enters its second century, as the event moves one week earlier than past events. The Loudon Classic will now take place on the opening weekend of Laconia Bike Week instead of the traditional Father’s Day date that has closed the historic rally in the past.
NEMRR President John Grush noted, “We are excited to feature this historic event to start off Motorcycle Week in New Hampshire and look forward to having races for all types of motorcycle fans.”
In addition to the feature classes on Saturday June 8, the 101st Loudon Classic will also showcase purse-paying Pro classes in the 500 Superbike and Thunderbike divisions. These divisions will add a place for both youth riders (500 Superbike) and expert motorcycle builders (Thunderbike) to showcase their talents in front of the crowd.
The Loudon Classic is anticipated to have a full live streamed broadcast and will again feature a wide variety of vendors and activities for all who attend.
NEMRR is striving to build a family friendly event with activities for all ages on site.
