Planning has commenced in Goulburn to commemorate the centenary of the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix which occurred on 23 June 1924. The celebration will be held exactly 100 years on.

The highlight of the celebration will be an escorted, re-enactment ride along the original 80-kilometre course. The original event, which was sanctioned as an official Grand Prix by the Auto Cycle Union of NSW, and organised by the Goulburn Motorcycle Club, took place over a 43-and-a-half-mile testing course that ran from the outskirts of Goulburn to Windellama, across to Bungonia, and back along Mountain Ash Road to the start finish line.

Amazingly, the original course exists almost entirely and can be ridden today. The Senior Grand Prix was won by Dave Brewster riding an Indian Chief, with T Benstead and R Preston coming in second and third respectively riding Harley-Davidson.

The centenary festivities will also include a parade of classic motorcycles through the main street of Goulburn, classic racing events at Wakefield Park Raceway, motocross events at the Goulburn Motorcycle Club, an exhibit of classic and vintage bikes, demonstration rides, live music at local venues and an official dinner.

The event promises to be a celebration of heritage, and camaraderie which will pay homage to the pioneers of Australian motorcycle racing while creating memories for generations to come.
