2006 Bonneville Vintage GP Race

September 15-17, 2006

The premier of a new vintage motorcycle event at a new race facility is planned toward the end of the summer. Starting September 14 on the Bonneville Salt Flats, vintage and classic bikes will be able to do their best Burt Munro impersonation during The World of Speed-Utah Salt Flats Racing Association with the special addition of AHRMA racing classes. Stock vintage bikes will also be able to do official timed runs and earn an official timing slip and certificate suitable for garage bragging rights. On Sept. 15th the event moves to the new $83 million dollar Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah for one day of practice and two days of AHRMA vintage road racing. AMA Hall of Fame Legends Gary Nixon and Jay Springsteen will compete in the Triumph Thruxton Cup Challenge. A Concour d'Elegance sponsored by Motorcycle Classics Magazine will be held on Saturday and a custom bike show on Sunday. Also on tap will be performances by the Extreme Trials Stunt Show, a swap meet, vendors, demo rides, and Police Motorcycle Competition. This event should fill the void for a complete vintage motorcycle festival in the American West left by Steamboat Springs, Park City, and Vintage Days West at Sears Point.
