1. What is GPR Camp?

It’s like Band Camp for Replica riders. Show up with your Replica, meet other Replica riders, have fun, learn about your bike, and how to improve your riding.

2. What is a Replica?

Replicas are motorcycles designed and inspired by MotoGP race bikes. They look like the race bikes, feature livery like the race bikes, and even include performance designes like the race bikes. For GPR Camp we focus this definition down to the smaller “50cc” bikes. For example the Aprilia RS50, Derbi GPR, and similar bikes.

3. Do I have to ride a Replica?

You will get the most out of GPR Camp if you do, however this is an inclusive event, so if you have a similar bike you’ll be fine. However, bigger bikes like a 250 are probably not very compatible with the riding style of the “50cc” Replicas.

6. Does my bike have to be licensed?

For the two street riding days your bike needs to be street legal–which means plated and insured. For out at the track you can bring a track bike, or ride your street Replica on the track.

7. Do I have to wear gear?

On the track you do. On the street we highly recommend wearing full gear including a full face helmet, gauntleted gloves, armored jacket and pants, or a full suit, a back protector, and boots. The law however only requires you to wear a helmet on the roads in California. But seriously, get some good gear and wear it.

12. Do you provide medical insurance?

GPR Camp does NOT offer any medical insurance. It is your individual responsibility to ensure that you are adequately prepared for any medical costs associated with riding during GPR Camp. Please have good health insurance as even a minor slip up can send you to a medical facility. These little side trips can be really expensive, so be prepared!

14. What about tech inspection?

It is always a good idea to keep your bike in proper running order. At the track there may be a tech inspection to insure everyone’s safety.
