AHRMA brings Vintage Dirt Track Excitement to COTA
(May 14, 2021, Elora, Tennessee) The American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) is bringing a living history of Dirt Track racing to the Republic of Texas Rally at the Circuit of The Americas (COTA), in Austin, Texas.
2021 marks the 25th anniversary of the Rally and the first time it will be held at COTA. Event organizers anticipate more than 30,000 participants. On June 11-12, they will have a chance to see and hear AHRMA’s Class C, brakeless, vintage and Seventies-era Dirt Track program.
This is the first time AHRMA will be putting bikes on the 1/3-mile COTA dirt track. AHRMA officials expect the vintage dirt trackers will take full advantage of the 35’ wide straights and 50’ corners.
“Having ARHMA at COTA to celebrate the 25th Republic of Texas Rally is a match made in dirt track heaven,” said Arthur Kowitz, Chairman of the AHRMA Board of Trustees. “COTA is an incredible racing venue, the ROT Rally is a national treasure and our classic bikes, that are going to be raced hard, are going to take the whole thing to a new level.”
Adding to the excitement will be a $1,500 “dash-for-cash” purse for competitors in the 2021 AHRMA “Spanish Cup.” This special class is open to Bultaco, OSSA and Montesa motorcycles with air-cooled engines displacing up to 360cc.
AHRMA’s classic racers will compliment other events on the COTA dirt track during the Rally. The Race of Gentlemen brings back the look and feel of motorcycles raced during the 1930s and 1940s. Fans of modern Dirt Trackers can check out Supermoto and Hooligan events. Small-bore “Mad Dog” racing are one of the hottest trends in dirt track and will be part of the action.
The Inaugural Derwood Invitational Builder Show, an AHRMA vintage bike show, live music and other motorsports entertainment will provide plenty of fun off the track.
