Beginning today you can go to RidingIntoHistory.org and find forms to register for both the Friday evening Grand Marshal dinner and Saturday’s Concours d’ Elegance, both at St. Augustine’s World Golf Village, May 18-19. All entries must meet the standards listed on the form and are subject to review by the Acceptance Committee. Please keep in mind there are class and event size limits. These steps are necessary to maintain the high quality event and present your motorcycle at its best among its peers.
Those planning to stay at the WGV can book a condo through choicehotels.com or take advantage of our discounted rate at the onsite Renaissance Hotel. You will find the code on our website under accommodations on the event & schedule page. There is also a less expensive hotel across the road from WGV. We recommend booking your room early to avoid disappointment. There is plenty of trailer parking available at all of these venues.
In other news, we are making a class change, adding a display, and will have more awards than ever. In addition to the usual collection of world class vintage motorcycles, this year’s event will celebrate competition motorcycles. We have seen an increasing interest in off-road, i.e. motocross, endure, etc. bikes. To accommodate this we are dividing that class into two segments, early pre-1975 models and the more modern ones from 1975-1990.
Having Bill Werner and Scott Parker as Grand Marshals, we are looking to assemble a special display of Harley Davidson XR750 flat track racers. If you have one or know of one, please let us know so we can include it.
We look forward to your participation in yet another spectacular show and once again raising tens of thousands of dollars for the K9’s For Warriors.
