AHRMA Racing at the Barber Vintage Festival
Be a Part of Vintage Racing at Barber Motorsports Park
Vintage road-racing motorcycles will take to the track for exciting competition—from 1920s-era hand-shifter V-twins—to booming Grand Prix single-cylinder machines. This is something you definitely have to see and hear to believe! There’s fun for fans of off-road racing as well, with vintage trials competitions and cross-country racing through the woods.
The American Historical Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) is the leading vintage racing group in North America with about 4,000 members. Visit AHRMA’s website to learn more about racing at Barber Motorsports Park during the 16th Annual Barber Vintage Festival Presented by BMW Motorrad.
