The American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) Classic MotoFest at Daytona International Speedway will kick off the 2022 motorcycle racing season January 7-9, 2022. Off-Road MX, Dirt Track and a full list of road races will be featured .
The event, which makes its first appearance at the World Center of Racing since 2015, will feature classic and modern motorcycle racing on the famous Daytona road circuit and a tri-oval layout, which has been the site of motorcycle racing since 1961. For the very first time, modern and vintage sidecars will race the famous 31-degree banks of Daytona.
The term “Superbike” is known around the world as a descriptive term for thrilling sport motorcycle racing. The very first Superbike race was held at Daytona in 1976 and has peaked ever since. There’s nothing quite like the snarling, big-engined Superbikes, with high handlebars and no fairings, whizzing around the Daytona. It is a sight and a sound to be seen.
For the 2022 season, the AHRMA honors the legacy of Daytona Superbike by presenting Vintage Superbike Heavyweight as its featured Vintage Cup class. Fittingly, the first installment of the 2022 Vintage Cup Heavyweight Superbike series will take place on January 8, 2022, where it all began forty-five years ago… Daytona International Speedway.
In addition to this paved action, there will be Vintage and Post-Vintage MX on a nearby 135 acre grassed and wooded site (Lot 7). Nightly clay track action will also be featured on the Daytona Championship “Flat Track” miles outside of the west end of the speed track.
During the three days, the infield of the Speedway will be open at the campsite. RV hookups are available. Family infield events will also include a Swap Meet and Bike Show which will feature local and national vintage motorcycle clubs.
General admission tickets will include access to the stands and paddock where fans can soak up the history and feel the action. Ticket information is forthcoming.
