The Lightweight class is famous for the iconic sounds and smells of thoroughbred two stroke 250cc grand prix motorcycles.

Phased out of modern motorcycle racing competition around the turn of the century, the 250 two stroke remains popular with fans and riders alike. Built to be raced, they are a thing of beauty; light, nimble but notoriously challenging to make fast and reliable around the TT Mountain Course.
