Elsinore GP

Remember the Elsinore GP featured in the classic movie On Any Sunday?

Lots of dirt bikes racing through the town, to the delight of the population, before heading out into the hills.

Some racers took it seriously most didn’t and legends such as Malcolm Smith managed to combine both attributes, then there was Harvey Mushman… who?


Hollywood actor Steve McQueen is who. He rode under a pseudonym so the movie studios wouldn’t spot what he did on a weekend.

An MX starting in the town centre? Can only be the Elsinore GP.

Seems the Elsinore GP still happens and is a four day festival in, on and around town in California.

Not too much space here for a full report but go to www.dirtseriesracing.com and check out the event.
