More than a hundred motorcycles of all types, from vintage to modern, will descend on WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca on Friday, May 13. Riders on the Quail Lodge Motorcycle Rally Ride are scheduled to arrive at noon at the world-renowned 2.24-mile road course which has hosted MotoGP, World Superbike and MotoAmerica battles for several decades
Those on the Quail Ride will get laps of the course during a special break in an SCCA track session.
“It’s exciting to welcome the riders as they assemble at Turn 5 and share stories of their bikes and rides before they enter the racing surface,” said John Narigi, president and general manager of WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. “Our longstanding partnership with Quail Lodge & Golf Club provides a unique experience for the riders and an opportunity for us to showcase our facility, as well as participating the following day (Saturday, May 14) with an exhibit at the Quail Motorcycle Gathering. It’s an example of a valuable community partnership.”
“Friday’s laps around WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca are always a major highlight for our annual Quail Ride,” said Kai Lermen, general manager of The Quail Lodge. “The group of motorcycles that participate is so eclectic and you can expect to see everything from modern superbikes to motorcycles from the early 1900s.”
The Quail Ride provides riders a feel for what the professional riders will face when MotoAmerica arrives for Round 7 of its 11-race championship season July 8-10. The GEICO Motorcycle MotoAmerica Superbike Speedfest will be the largest motorcycle race on the west coast, catering to families of all ages, with a Kids Zone replete with games and activities.
Motorcycle racing will continue in July with the AHRMA Classic MotoFest of Monterey set for the July 15-17 weekend. There, vintage motorcycles, side cars and off-road competition will provide continuous action on track with a club-like atmosphere off-track that includes a swap meet featuring a variety of hard-to-find parts and two-wheel focus memorabilia.
