Racing Starts This Weekend

March 21st, 2013 | Posted by British Customs in Events, Promotions, Thruxton Cup

 

Grab your family and friends and join us this weekend, March 22-24, at NOLA in Avondale, Louisiana for a weekend of racing.

As the racers start to arrive in Avondale, Louisiana for the first race of the season; anticipation begins to build. As each racer works to complete the final touches to their Triumph Thruxton they start to prepare mentally for thrilling race ahead. They imagine the stress and excitement as they work their way to the front of the line, the way the tires feel on the asphalt as they push their motorcycles to their limit in hope to get one position closer to the finish line. It’s an adrenaline filled experience that a racer will never forget.

Have you ever dreamed of racing your Triumph Thruxton? Well now is your chance! The American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) has a spec class called the Thruxton Cup TransAtlantic Challenge created specifically for the Triumph Thruxton. This class was created for racers of all ages and skill levels, ranging from beginners to experts. With minimal modifications, you can be one of the many who have decided to live out a dream of racing classic Triumph café racers.
