Ever so often time can fly by and stand still in the same moment and that my friends is what’s happening in a little over a month. We can’t believe another year has raced by and the annual Barber Vintage Festival is right around the corner. This celebration of speed and perpetual life of the “Café Racer” will be the best one to date and yet again we have joined forces with our friends Ace Café, Iron and Air Magazine, Barber Motorsports Park and Café Racer TV.
The weekend of October 10th is your time to join us at Ace Corner to set back, relax at the best seat in the house (Turn 17). The only area in entire place where you can drink and meet dozens of hand-built custom vintage speed machines that can do the ton.
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
