Throwing The Green Flag

Somebody had to do it. The AFM (American Federation of Motorcyclists) is the oldest amateur roadracing club in the USA. At 60 years old, it's been around longer than Honda. It has survived the Korean conflict, Vietnam, the riotous Seventies, gas rationing, inflation, deflation, the dot-com crash and The Great Recession.

That's a cause for celebration. Sure, there could be a celebration in any year--but we like to celebrate in jumps of five and Sixty is a good number. In fact, the larger the number gets the more of our early racers we lose. (Not to put too fine a point on it.)

It's been 10 years since the last anniversary party. Enough waiting! Come to the track. See old friends. Meet new ones. Watch our racers on everything from Vintage to Superbike.

Plans are still developing but all a party really needs is people. As a bonus, we'll show the never-publicly-released retrospective film from the 50th party...with footage from Carlsbad, Cotati, Orange County and many more lost-but-not-forgotten venues.
