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

Celebrating its 26th consecutive year in 2019 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 event features the fiercely contested International Challenge where teams will battle a points score challenge for team success and the perpetual Ken Wootton trophy, awarded to the highest individual point scorer from the International Challenge races.

The Phil Irving trophy, named in honour of the gifted Australian engineer is awarded to the rider who accrues the most points outside of the International Challenge throughout the event weekend.

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.

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.
