Vintage Motorsports Event Coming to Birmingham
8 Jul, 2015
Tickets are now on sale for the 11th annual Barber Vintage Festival presented by Triumph Dealers of North America taking place October 9-11 at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Ala. The various ticket options available include, Ace Corner Cafe, parade laps, camping and more. Additionally, a new ticket process will take place this year and fans will now receive tickets in the form of a wristband to help the traffic flow as you enter and exit the gates of Barber Motorsports Park.
The three-day motorcycle festival is one of the largest vintage festivals in the country. With more than 65,000 attending last year’s festival, up from 61,000 the year before, the festival continues to grow each year.
“This event continues to amaze us with how much support it receives each year,” stated George Dennis, president of ZOOM Motorsports, the exclusive event promoter of Barber Motorsports Park. “Last year’s event sold tickets in all 50 states and 9 countries, and with the continued growth we are thrilled to announce a new ticket process to enhance and speed up the flow of traffic and parking logistics at Barber Motorsports Park. The fans have asked and we are listening and look forward to making the experience more enjoyable by testing out this new ticket plan.”
All tickets will be in the form of wristbands and will be shipped in September 2015. Wristbands are non-transferable, non-exchangeable and cannot be replaced.
In an effort to decrease traffic around the Park, vehicles have the option to purchase a Premium On-site parking pass to park in Lot E on Friday and Saturday for $20. For only $10, additional parking is available for purchase in Lot C or Lot D for Saturday and Sunday. Both ticket options include a 2-Day parking pass and passes will be shipped in September 2015.
