Lake Elsinore Grand Prix
The Elsinore Grand Prix is a dirt-bike race that takes place in and around the Lake Elsinore area.  The annual race is usually held in mid-November.  The popularity of the event hit its apex in the late 1960s and early 1970s, drawing the likes of dirt-bike greats such as Malcolm Smith and Steve McQueen.  The race has always been set as an “open” format, meaning anyone can ride; usually only about 200 or so take this event seriously, whereas the rest use it as an opportunity to have fun.  In 1971, the documentary movie On Any Sunday by Bruce Brown included scenes from the grand prix.
In the mid-1970s the Elsinore Grand Prix hit a snag, none of the big riders were participating, and the event was drawing the wrong crowd.  The race was cancelled indefinitely soon afterwards.  In 1996, several dirt-bike riders, with a hint of nostalgia, decided to lobby the city of Lake Elsinore to revive the Grand Prix.
In 1973, Honda named its CR250M Elsinore—the first motorcycle designed by Honda for the dirt rather than a modified street bike—after the Elsinore GP race venue.
Lake Elsinore is also a popular destination for motorcyclists riding east from San Juan Capistrano along the 33-mile long Ortega Highway.
