AHRMA Announces a “World Championship” Mini-Series

The American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) announces a new mini-series for the conclusion of the 2011 Road Racing season

The 2011 AHRMA World Championship series, a first for AHRMA, is a mini-series that will tabulate results from all road race classes for the 7th Annual Barber Vintage Festival (October 8th and 9th) and the one round of the last event of the road race season at Daytona International Speedway, the following weekend (October 14th thru 16th).

This mini-series was created to allow international riders an easy way to compete in two AHRMA nationals at two premier facilities in one easy trip. All racers must be entered for both events to be included in the final standings.

A contingent of Manx-mounted New Zealanders and several international champions have already signed up to join the AHRMA regulars as they battle for points in the 500 Premier race.
