The Grand Prairie Police Department Motor Unit is proud to host the 7th Annual Spring Classic Police Motorcycle Training and Skills Competition. The 2017 event will take place April 19-22, 2017. The main competition days will be Friday and Saturday, April 21 and 22. Thanks to Grand Prairie Premium Outlets and Longhorn Harley-Davidson for allowing us a new location for the Spring Classic at 2950 W. Interstate 20.
The five day event brings together officers from across Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and as far away as Tennessee to take part in valuable training to keep them safe while performing their normal duties. The competition allows the officers to have fun while showing off their riding skills in front of spectators and having an opportunity to interact with the public in a non-enforcement role, through entry fees, civilian donations made at the event, and our sponsors we are able to make a sizeable contribution to the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, and in turn support the Special Olympic Athletes and Special Olympics movement as a whole.
In 2014 we were glad to be able to bring in a new element, hosting the 1st annual Spring Classic Civilian Motorcycle Competition in conjunction with the police competition. This will be the our third year to welcome skilled civilian riders to take part, competing on the same courses as the officers.
Sponsorship opportunities are available to help make this event another huge success.
