The International Island Classic is Australia’s largest historic motorcycle race

Celebrating its 27th consecutive year in 2020 the Island Classic will see a celebration of racing that has spanned more than a quarter of a century, making the event one of the most iconic historic motorcycle festivals in the world.

The International Island Classic will feature a century of motorcycles from pre-war through to the new era machines, creating a motorcycle-lovers paradise over a massive three days. 

International Challenge

The headline event, the International Challenge will see teams from Australia, the United States of America and the United Kingdom battle for glory. Points will be awarded according to finishing position of each rider over 4 races, and the trophy awarding to the team based on the accumulated points. The highest individual point scorer from the 4 races will be awarded the Ken Wootton Perpetual Trophy.

Historic Racing

Solo classes will be held for bikes dating back to pre-WWI, right through to Vintage (1920-1945), Classic (1946-1962), Post Classic (1963-1972), Forgotten Era (1973-1982) and New Era (1983-1990) division. These riders will be competing for the Phil Irving Perpetual Trophy awarded to the rider who accrues the most points outside the International Challenge races.

Champions from past and present converge on the famous Phillip Island Circuit from all over the world for the Island Classic so you never know who you might bump into.
