FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
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.
This year GPR Camp is being held on June 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th.
This year GPR Camp is taking place in the Marin Headlands just north of the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge, and at the Little 99 kart track in Stockton, CA.
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.
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.
At this point you can transfer the registration to another person (please notify us of names). Since registration is limited we should be abel to find a replacement for you.
Once registered you will have a a spot reserved with the track provider. The track fee is in addition to your registration. For the race on Saturday the fee will vary depending on number of classes etc.

Food is not provided, but campees are encouraged to share and participate in the pot-luck meals.
Yes we are camping in a group site for tents. The access road might be a little too tricky for large vehicles.
While we will be close to civilization, and some rides may include a lunch stop in general you’ll want to bring food. We will be having diner together, and people are welcome to share potluck style.
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!
GPR Camp participants are expected to bring their own bikes, and there are no local shops that rent appropriate motorcycles.
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.
