Motorcycle daredevils will be thrilling crowds every hour, riding vintage bikes on a vertical wall inside the American Motor Drome Wall of Death at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, featuring the Riders of Kawasaki, July 7-9 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
A crowd favorite, the show features a motor drome – a silo-shaped wooden cylinder 30 feet across – and motorcycle riders performing trick, fancy and acrobatic riding along its vertical wall. Spectators stand at the top of the 14-foot wall and look down as the riders speed around the cylinder, passing within inches of the crowd.
The American Motor Drome Wall of Death riders will be performing a show every hour during AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days.
