The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course (Mid-Ohio) are postponing the AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days. The groups are working with state and local health authorities to determine new dates for the event.
AMA’s Chief Operating Officer said:
“Unfortunately, event restrictions in place under order of the Ohio Department of Health prohibit many traditional elements of AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days that our competitors and fans have come to enjoy. The social interaction and camaraderie are an integral component that we love about this event. The multi-day swap meet, the camping, in-field activities, the crowds, not to mention the organic fun of the event, are impossible in light of the current situation.”
Mid-Ohio’s Sports Car Course President chipped in with:
“We are disappointed, but this is the right decision. Mid-Ohio will continue to work closely with the AMA, as well as our state and local health officials, to monitor the ongoing coronavirus situation and identify when AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days can be rescheduled for 2020. We ask for everyone’s patience, and we will announce a new date as soon as possible.”
More about AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days
AMA’s Vintage Motorcycle Days was established in 1990. The Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course has been the event’s host for the last 24 years. The event is an annual celebration of America’s motorcycling heritage and welcomes thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts. Along with those enthusiasts, come hundreds of vendors for motorcycle shows, racing, seminars, and the largest motorcycle swap meet in the USA.
If you enjoy vintage iron and browsing through aisles and aisles of parts, accessories, etc, you owe it to yourself to attend. Even better, the proceeds from your ticket to the event support the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
While the event has been postponed, the good news is that the event has not been canceled. You can also go to AMA’s Vintage Motorcycle Days or Facebook for additional information.
We’ll let you know about the new date once it is announced.
