    I've been doing trackdays for several years now and have raced some as well. Very interested in getting into vintage racing but am having difficulty finding info on how to get started beyond the AHRMA rule book.
    I'd like to get into a class that doesn't require spending a ton and allows for a reliable bike. (I'm interested a lot more in vintage RACING than vintage MECHANICING) Any suggestions?

    The guys on Facebook's "AHRMA - Vintage Road Racing" group are pretty helpful.



    Where are you?

    Unless you think you can be seriously competitive, I'd start with Production class. If you weigh less than 140 or so, maybe go lightweight - the bike should match the rider.

    Sportsman classes are next cheapest.

    All else starts to get into semi-pro competitors out for blood. (not that there's anything wrong with that...)

    You can MAYBE get into a NextGen or Superbike class relatively inexpensively, especially if you happen to have an "old" sport/super bike...

    I built a competitive Production Heavyweight bike from a $200 swap meet XS650. Relatively cheap and fast. Like any racing class, regardless of rules you can spend as much money as you want.

    Honda CB350. AHRMA, WERA, and USCRA all have classes where they are competetive and in some cases the only bike in the class. CB350 race bikes are not hard to find already setup either.

    Back in the day, rotary valved 2-stroke singles were allowed to compete against smaller displacement multi's so bikes like the Kawasaki 350cc Bighorn provided a very inexpensive and competitive platform for what would now be a vintage racer You can't get much cheaper then an old 2-stroke dirt bike that has little practical use in this century. If I was wanting to get into vintage amateur track racing that is what I would be shopping for.
    Next step is to obtain a racing license and then seek out your local club and turn out to an event to participate. If you want to spend all your time racing and not wrenching, you are going to need a sponsor and a mechanic and good luck with that.

    Mid-Ohio is slated for 7/7-7/9 so finally AHRMA and WERA are not the same weekend. hoping for the return of big grids at Mid-o

    At least it's a step in the right direction...
