For the first time since its inception in 1994, the Phil Irving Trophy was a three-way tie for 2019 as Lachlan Hill, Levi Day and Tom Bramich all had clean sweeps in their respective classes.

It was the first time Lachlan Hill, who competed in the 250cc and 350cc Forgotten Era classes had received the acclaimed trophy.

Levi Day, competing in 250cc and 500cc New Era classes has taken out the Phil Irving Trophy on three previous occasions (2010, 2012 and 2015), whilst Tom Bramich competing in the 500cc Forgotten Era and 500cc New Era classes also won it in 2016.

Five riders have won the trophy twice; however, it is Russell Fairbairn who holds the record for the most wins with five (2002, 2003, 2005, 2006 and 2008).
