Both the Revival Racing MCC and Classic Bike Festival Ireland‘s objectives are to promote and encourage the sport of classic motorcycling racing for machines from previous era’s bringing back what we know were the glory days of racing in the 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s where 2-strokes ruled the smaller classes and battled with the big 4-strokes in the larger classes. In our first year we will be offering parade and track laps for all riders and machines. In future years when there is enough interest then races will be also included in the programme.
