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!
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.
