Coastal Vintage Motorcycle Festival July
12-13, 2014 Roebling Road
HMGP will present the Coastal Vintage Motorcycle Festival during
the weekend of July 12-13 at Roebling Road Raceway outside of Savannah. As with
all HMGP events, the bikes will be the stars with collectors exhibiting their
bikes on the track.
The event is open to
owners of historic roadrace bikes, vintage sport bikes and café racers. The
weekend will operate much like a low key track day event. Riders can take the
opportunity to ride their vintage bikes on the track in an environment very
different from the normal track day. This will not be an event filled with the
next world champion learning how to race his 600 Supersport. Rather this is the
opportunity for collectors and owners of vintage bikes to take them out for
exercise in a safe relaxed environment.
There will be four classes
which will operate on 15 minute sessions so each class should get 8 track
sessions per day. The classes will be structured by speed. At least one class
will operate as a “Club 59” group where the combined age of the bike and rider
must equal or exceed 59 years. In this environment all the participants realize
how hard it is to get repairs for both the bikes and riders.
The event will start at 8
am on Saturday morning. As is the custom at HMGP events, there will be a social
dinner event Saturday evening. The track activity will resume Sunday morning.
The cost is $200 per day or $350 for the weekend. The track will be open
from 5 – 10 pm on Friday night for participants to set up camp in the pits. For
collectors who wish to come set up static displays of their bikes, the fee is
$50 for the weekend.
Space is limited. If you
are planning on coming and have not done so yet, you need to call Bill Brown at
(404) 379-6091 to reserves space.
Historic Moto Gran Prix (HMGP) is collector
organization led by former AMA Pro racer Bill Brown. It is designed as an
alternate venue for acknowledged classics like Manx Nortons and air-cooled TD
Yamahas, and is also looking to draw more recent "classic" racers
including the likes of the legendary two-strokes of the 1970s and the AMA
four-stroke superbikes of the 1980s and 1990s. Privateer and replica
racer models are highly encouraged to attend. HMGP is the perfect place
to share motorsports history with other enthusiasts and display the bikes in
the proper setting; at speed on the race track. This is world-class
gentleman's racing. HMGP gratefully acknowledges their presenting sponsor, Yamaha
Motor Corporation, for their dedication to preserving racing and engineering
history. For information on membership, classes, this year's calendar and event
