Concours de Competition presented by Henderson Auctions
As a unique part of this year’s Barber Vintage Festival we are holding the Concours de Competition presented by Henderson Auctions where prominent vintage bikes will compete both on and off track for a chance to win this annual event.
Racing motorcycles were never meant to sit still. They were designed to be seen and heard in motion. It is our attempt to mount an exhibition where these race bikes can be seen and heard, and the owners can explain their history and secrets.
There is both a show class and a go class. Each bike will be required to have an exhibit to go with the bike. Each bike in the “go” class will need to be able to successfully complete one lap on the track at a moderate speed.
The event will take place October 6th-8th as part of the Barber Vintage Festival. A bike and a rider will need to be present Thursday-Saturday.
