Ace Cafe London, joining the Triumph performance experts T3 Racing, are coming to the USA in 2015 for the 10th annual Barber Vintage Festival in Birmingham, Ala., Oct. 10-12, and for the second annual American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo) in Orlando, Oct. 15-19.
Ace Café London is the premiere motorcycle and hot-rod social and music venue on the North Circular Road in London going back to 1938. After suffering extensive bomb damage in WWII, the Ace was rebuilt in 1949 and by the 1960s became locus for the “ton-up club” and the heart of the motorcycle and café racer scene in England.
After being closed for a number of years, the Ace reopened in 2001. Today, it is one of the hottest places in London—and now at five other locations around the world, including the US in Orlando — for motorcyclists, hot-rod car enthusiasts and rock music.
T3 Racing, are highly regarded in the British SuperBike (BSB) Championship with their TriStar R&G Triple Challenge, having proven their capabilities in Japan, will raise their global profile further with their appearances in North America.
Already in a supporting relationship with British SuperBike and TT, and with the limited edition Ace Triumph 904S Thruxton Special motorcycle available on the market, both Ace Cafe London and T3 Racing anticipate meeting with Cafe Racer TV, Dime City Cycles, Cafe-Moto, Do the Ton, Iron & Air, Cafe Racer magazines, and all those who build, race, and ride bikes during the two week transatlantic tour.
T3 Racing owner Tony Scott said “I’m very excited about this trip, not only will it help further strengthen our relationship with Ace Cafe London, I’m also confident that it will see the name T3 Racing taken to a whole new world!
“While in the USA my aims are to explore options for a US distributor with whom our knowledge of triumph machinery can be shared and who can take on our proven aftermarket performance products, and to look at ways of bringing the Ace 904S Thruxton Special, a very exclusive British cafe racer, to American asphalt!”
