Vintage track days???

Are there any orgs the put on track days for vintage bikes during the weekends?

I know that WERA and AHRMA (I think that is how its spelled) do vintage racing, but do they do track days?

I "may" be coming into another CB360 project that is neerly finished, and i want to stretch its legs a bit, but since it has drum brakes front and rear, I am not sure how wise that would be on the street.

Plus my close friend "Cornbread" has that CB160 that he would also like to run on the track. But it has a top speed around 60ish. That would be dangerous on the same track as modern bikes.







Mods, even though this is a track question, I feel it is more fitting in the vintage forum.

ChiVin Moto sometimes works out a date to have a vintage session as a 4th group during PTT days. I don't know if they are still doing it. Might be worth it to check out if they would do it as a 4th session during the Blackhawk Farms Wednesday trackdays. (Run by the track itself) They mentioned that they might have some dates with a "special" group session.

If you join the group, post up and ask if Big Bob is going to organize it again this year.

AHRMA is the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association. It is a vintage racing club that sanctions road racing, vintage motocross ('74 & earlier bikes), Post Vintage motocross ('75 & later bikes with long travel suspension into the early '80's) V & PV Cross country, Vintage flat track and vintage observed trials. These are not parade laps, these guys race. There are numerous road race classes including an entry level production class that includes bikes into the 80's. Go to www.Ahrma.org and you can get all the info. It's easy to join and get certified to race with them.
If you're interested in racing at the RA event, the Team Chicago school at Gratten for $30 dollars will get you eligible for an AHRMA license. Go to www.teamchicago.tv and click enter and on the page that comes up you'll see the link to the application and info.
Big Bob of ChiVinMoto...he's the guy who organizes the CVM vintage track day, won at Roebling on his SOHC Honda 750 last Saturday, and also took second on Monday and won yesterday at Daytona in AHRMA's Historic heavyweight production class and is coming home from Daytona with the series points lead in that class!

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!
