2016 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days Dates

2017 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days | Dates AnnouncedThe AMA has officially announced the dates for the 2017 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days event to be held at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. Vintage racers, collectors, fans and restorers will rest easy knowing that one of the highlights to their riding season will be returning, once again on July 7-9, 2017.

AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is a family oriented place, where young and old fans of racing can come together and appreciate bikes of old. There are plenty of things to do while, between bike shows, stunt shows, seminars and a swap meet featuring hundreds of vendors – motorcycle enthusiasts will likely have their fill. And it’s all done in the name of the nonprofit AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame.

“We’re pleased to announce the dates for AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days 2017, so attendees can start making plans for this wonderful event,” said American Motorcyclist Association President and CEO Rob Dingman. “Today, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days is recognized as one of the country’s premier motorcycling festivals, and it’s important to remember that it celebrates the illustrious history that has shaped motorcycling in this country.

“We welcome all motorcyclists to join us July 7-9, 2017, as we highlight some memorable moments of that history at another AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days,” Dingman said.

The AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days has been running since 1990, and keeping with tradition, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course has been home to the event since ’95. The track seems to be the perfect location, with areas for actual riding, trials, hare-scramblers and motocross – all points of interest are covered.

The announcement might seem a little premature but organizers have just inked a multi-year agreement with Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course to host the event.

“We could not be happier to not only announce our 2017 date this early, but to also confirm a multi-year agreement with the premier motorcycle association in the country,” said Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course President Craig Rust. “Our partnership with the American Motorcyclist Association and AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days continues to grow and is one of the fan favorites on our schedule each year.

This year’s event – showcased in the September issue of American Motorcyclist magazine, had plenty to talk about, featuring AMA Motorcycle Hall of Famer and two-time AMA Superbike Champion Wes Cooley as the Grand Marshall, the event helped celebrate the 40th anniversary of the AMA Superbike Championship. Suzuki Motor of America Inc. was also on hand, honoring their longtime involvement in American road racing.
