For many prospective road racers, the triple-digit speeds, large grids and relatively high-costs of a modern amateur road race program are daunting. But there is a solution, and future asphalt carvers can find it during AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, July 8-10.
“A core part of the AMA’s mission is to promote motorcycling, and mini road racing is a great way to expose potential road racers to the sport,” said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. “We’re excited to have the Ohio Mini Roadracing League team join us at this year’s event.”
The AMA-chartered Ohio Mini Roadracing League will operate the three-day program during the event, including practice on Friday and racing on Saturday and Sunday. Pre-registration for the OMRL program is available now at www.ohiominiroadracingleague.com/ama-vmd-race/. Detailed class descriptions and a mini road racing FAQ are provided on the OMRL website.
OMRL President Kent Klawon says several club members are looking forward to competing during the country’s premier celebration of vintage motorcycles and the people who love them.
“AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days has always been about having a good time on motorcycles of all eras, and we’re thrilled to be part of the program this year,” Klawon said. “We have club members who race in the vintage road race program every year. Not only will the mini road racing give our club members more to do, but we hope to attract both new racers as well as experienced racers of full-sized bikes who are looking for a fun time.”
Klawon said the top riders in each class will be recognized based on the cumulative points earned during both days of competition.
