With the Runway Romp just behind us, many vintage racing fans are looking forward to the next even with even greater anticipation. While the Runway Romp offers racers and fans an opportunity to experience vintage racing in a truly unique environment (we even saw a few planes land while the racers were zipping back and forth), the Mosport Vintage Festival is an entirely different affair.
Mosport International Raceway in Bowmanville, Ontario
Mosport has been known as one of the top tracks in Canada, and improvements in recent years have led to an increase in it's reputation as a one of the best in North America. What better way to see the high powered bikes of yesteryear face off, than on this daunting GP track. With it's long straightaways, thrilling ups and downs and curves, parade laps for owners of vintage bikes who aren't racing, vintage sidecar demos and the possibility of some track time on demos from major manufacturer, this could be the amateur racing event of the summer!
The Vintage Road Racing Association was founded in 1980 with the mission of giving vintage bike owners a chance to get their bikes back on the track. The video of the Runway Romp featured below gives a good idea of what to expect at their events. The VRRA hold four race events for vintage bikes each year. For more information on joining the VRRA, you can learn more about the club here. Their events welcome young and old, and are certainly family friendly. They're also great for those who are more fond of the aesthetics of old bikes - there is always plenty to see as the rides are all displayed before the races.
