A whole weekend of crazy races at Jerez

The coolest thing about the whole World GP Bike Legends event is that the attendants will be able to see the motorcycle racing legends... well, racing. No less than three special race classes are dedicated to the biggest names in motorcycling history.

The Legends can be seen lining up for the start in the 500cc, 250cc and 125cc races, all three comprising the "unrideable" 2-stroke bikes. Other races include the International Classic Grand Prix for 250/350cc bikes, the Classic 250cc/350cc Trophy, the 125cc Challenge Trophy and the Classic 50/80cc Superstars Trophy.

Besides the intense action in the 14 races scheduled for the weekend, the World GP Bike Legends festival will also host a series of concerts with QueenMania and The ZZ Tops tribute bands, as well as welcoming Bonnie Tyler and the racer-turner-rocker James Toseland.

Various bike clubs will also be present and those with paddock access will be able to meet the legends, take pictures and get autographs. Trial shows will also be on the menu, while BMW Motorrad Espana will be offering test rides.

If you're in Spain this weekend and want to get a motorcycle racing overdose, the World GP Bike Legends in Jerez is THE place to be.
