The programme note about the race reads:

'The Lansdowne Classic Series is dedicated to preserving the sights and sounds of yesteryear, presenting a taste of Grand Prix motorcycle racing as it was in the 1950s and early 1960s when British and continental four-stroke machines ruled the roost. Evocative names such as Norton, Matchless, AJS, Moto-Guzzi and Aermacchi once more line up, with riders having to push start their Machines.'
