NG Road Racing to run series for 125cc Grand Prix machines

Riders of 125GP machines will now be able to contest a full national title, as North Gloucester Road Racing club announce the launch of the new ACU  125GP National Championship at Donington Park, May 7-8.

Following the news that two-stroke Grand Prix machines would no longer be eligible for BSB’s Motostar series, NGRRC are offering riders of 125GP bikes a serious championship to race in, as well as the chance to become the first ACU National 125GP champion and collect their trophy at the prestigious ACU awards ceremony alongside bike racing’s big-name winners.

The opening rounds will be at Donington Park on May 7-8, and the championship will be contested across a further eight rounds, taking in historic circuits like Oulton Park, Castle Combe and Thruxton.

Sharing a grid with the club’s highly successful 250GP National Championship, the 125 championship riders will contest races over a national-length race distance (25 miles), as well as benefiting from structured warm-up and qualifying sessions, and a proper podium celebration.

To help keep costs to a minimum, riders will be free to choose their own tyres and fuel, plus organisers are hoping to be able to offer prize money for the championship winners.  

All interested riders and teams should contact series organiser Steve Bostock on 07967 681639/01452 304804 or email sbostock@ngroadracing.org. See www.ngroadracing.org for more details.
