It’s been two years now since our first Cafe Racer and custom motorcycle themed area Ace Corner Barber put itself on the map. This year, we’ve ratcheted it up even more based on all the feedback given from the two previous years. Re-joining forces with our friends from across the pond, Ace Cafe, Iron & Air Magazine as well as The Barber Motorsports Park, to bring you the “event within the event” at this years 9th annual Barber Vintage Festival.
Here’s a look at some of the changes we’ve made -
Food and beverage service will far more efficient and faster
Bike parking inside Ace Corner will be left for vintage bikes and cool customs to keep with the spirit of the event
The stage is being moved to the east end of the infield to make room for more custom builders and vendors
The saturday night party will go from 5PM till 9PM tonight with the Cigar Store Indians and some surprise musical guests
…and there’s a whole lot more!
The weekend of October 12th we’re asking you to sit back, relax and watch the races from the best seat in the house (TURN 17) at the only place you can grab a cold beer or wine in the entire Barber Motorsports Park. Enter your bike in the custom motorcycle show and take in the sights and sounds, make a last minute entry to win the custom Triumph Bonneville Cafe Racer we built in partnership with Triumph Motorcycles, Iron & Air Magazine and Neale Bayly Rides and most important of all, visit with dozens of other builders and industry persons.
