AMA Pro Flat Track will have a display located in the “Fan Zone” at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama for this weekend’s Barber Vintage Festival, scheduled for October 9-11. The festival will feature many fascinating motorcycles both old and new, and is expected to draw thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts from all across the U.S.
“This is an excellent opportunity for us to put the sport on display in front of thousands of motorcycle racing fans,” said Michael Gentry, Chief Operating Officer of AMA Pro Racing. “We look forward to seeing our diehard fans and making some new ones at the Barber Vintage Festival this weekend.”
There will be many motorcycles on display this weekend at the Barber Vintage Festival, including the very machines that are used in AMA Pro Flat Track competition today.
The Lloyd Brothers Motorsports Ducati Scrambler, which was ridden by AMA Pro Flat Track Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines competitor Johnny Lewis and three-time World Superbike champion Troy Bayliss this season, will be on full display for everyone to enjoy. A vintage Harley-Davidson, the powerful Kawasaki EX650 and the newly-designed Yamaha FZ 07 will also be on display under the AMA Pro Flat Track tent.
In addition to the motorcycles that are currently being used in competition today, the museum will provide the AMA Pro Flat Track display with the 1970 Champion/Honda dirt tracker that former AMA Pro Flat Track competitor Rick Hocking used to ride.
The annual Barber Vintage Festival is one of the most highly anticipated motorcycle events in the world. The three-day festival features the America’s First Fan Zone with food and entertainment, Ace Corner, a Century Parade, a swap meet with hundreds of vendors selling vintage motorcycles and parts, as well as the AMCA and VJMC gatherings, and the Motorcycle Classics show. The AMA Pro Flat Track booth will be icing on the cake for those who hold a passion for motorcycle racing.
