Due to a scheduling conflict the Wauseon Vintage Motorcycle Event held in Wauseon, Ohio, the AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course has been moved up a week earlier.
AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2014 will now occur July 11-13 so motorcyclists can get more out of their summer events. The new dates prevent a conflict with the Wauseon Vintage Motorcycle Event.
Jeff Massey (AMA Vice President of Operations) says: “Providing a date for AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is never easy, given that it often can only be set after many other dominoes get lined up, including schedules for MotoGP racing in this country, World Superbike races here, and AMA Pro Racing events.
“We never like to wind up in competition with other motorcycling events nearby, and some years it’s unavoidable. But in this case, we were able to work with other groups in an effort to find a new spot on the calendar for AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days that makes the most sense for the fans.”
The move sees Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course’s popular AMA Pro Racing event move to July 19-20, track officials have announced.
Jeff Massey says: “It wasn’t easy getting all the dominoes to fall the right way, but in the end, this change will be received well by the fans of AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days,” Massey said. “By changing these dates, we create the opportunity for a better fit in the mix of motorcycling attractions in the region next July.”
Craig Rust (Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course’s President) says: “We’re happy to work with the AMA and AMA Pro Racing to come up with a reformatted schedule that we believe will benefit everyone, including the great fans who support these events.”
