Lord of the Lake
2018 Lord of the Lake
The Lord of the Lake is Queensland's premiere Historic and Post Classic Motorcycle event. Held at the iconic Lakeside Park, North of Brisbane, it is the perfect setting to experience first hand Historic and Post Classic bikes racing against each other on a 'old school' race circuit that complements the older 2-stroke GP bikes as well as the later improved 4-stroke production bikes from the sixties right through to 1990. Lakeside Raceway is one of those iconic circuits that always provides close and exciting racing action whether it be in the 125GP class right through to 1300cc plus monster Period 6 bikes.
2018 has seen a number of major track improvements, in part, with the iconic Bus Stop being resurfaced and the bank moved back which provides better viewing area's for spectators.
The Lord of the Lake dates back to 1979 and the inaugural race meeting was won by one of the Champions of that era Robert Madden. We will have Rob Madden with us at this year race meeting as the event ambassador and he will be awarding this years champions trophy.
At the Lord of the Lake you can see first hand both solo Historic and Post Classic bikes and sidecars which is always the crowd favourite, the event provides a huge amount of on track action and is a must for any bike enthusiast, so pick your day to come out. There is qualifying Saturday up to around 11am and then the rest of the day is racing. After the morning warm up sessions on Sunday there is racing from 10am through till approx. 4:30pm. This is the only historic and Post Classic competitive bike meet at Lakeside Park this year and is one not to miss either as a spectator or competitor. 2018 see's the return of unlimited capacity period 5 and 6 bikes back at Lakeside Park for the first time in a number of years which should not be missed.
