The Barber Museum and WERA have again sponsored a Vintage Concours de Competition in conjunction with a WERA road race at the Barber Motorsports Park, Leeds, Alabama, on 3 July 2020 2021.  This is the 3rd such event and I believe all 80 spaces have been filled.  I don't remember the years or qualifications of the bikes that are invited but they are all competition machines and have been selected judged on merit.  We didn't enter last year but did in the first event and there were some really special bikes there.  Barber is a little east of Birmingham, AL, off I-20 and I think a one day spectator entry fee is $20.  A good day of racing and very nice vintage machines to boot.

Yup.  My typo and poor proofreading...

The event was very successful!  Over 80 entrants, 26 in the competition category from HD XRTT to Yamaha TD3 and the remainder in the show category.  Most from east of the Mississippi but a couple from Canada.  Beautiful weather and very interesting motorcycles.  No crashes as far as I know.  Grand Marshal wad David Aldana who rode a 1974 Suzuki500 Ron Grant special.

Great! Wife and I are looking forward to Vintage Days again this year. We'll probably take the Spyder.

Check out the coverage on facebook Concours de Competition.  Quite a few pictures; not so many two strokes but lots of good bikes.
