European Motorcycle Grand Prix

The European motorcycle Grand Prix was a motorcycling event that was reintroduced as part of the Grand Prix motorcycle racing World Championship from 1991 to 1995. From 1996 onwards the event was replaced by the Catalan Grand Prix.

Between 1924 and 1948, the European Grand Prix was not a race in its own right but just a honorific title; one of the national Grands Prix was also designated as the European Grand Prix. The first race to be so named was the 1924 Nations Grand Prix, held at the Monza circuit in Italy. Until 1937, the winners of the race designated the European Grand Prix were awarded the title of European champion. In 1938, the European championship became decided over a series of races and the European Grand Prix designation was not used again until 1947, although no longer awarding the European championship title.

Famous quotes containing the words grand, european and/or motorcycle:

    Man, in the ideal, is so noble and so sparkling, such a grand and glowing creature, that over any ignominious blemish in him all his fellows should run to throw their costliest robes.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    I can never suppose this country so far lost to all ideas of self-importance as to be willing to grant America independence; if that could ever be adopted I shall despair of this country being ever preserved from a state of inferiority and consequently falling into a very low class among the European States.
    George III (1738–1820)

    Kicking the heart
    with pain’s big boots running up and down
    the intestines like a motorcycle racer.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
