The Race of Gentlemen!


Ladies and Gentlemen, children of all ages! The great cities of Allenhurst and Loch Arbor,

proudly present to you……. The Race of Gentlemen!

On October 20th, 2012, a selected group of gentlemen will put on an exhibition race of antique motorcycling, and automotive racing history on the beach. American made motorcycles from 1911 thru 1950 will run along the Allenhurst shore, and finish in Loch Arbor. Like the early races and beach testing sites for experimental mechanical engineering in our early American days.

There will also be automobiles from the late 20's thru 1934 duking it out for top position on the sands.

This exhibition race has been created to emulate these great races of yester year. An antique mechanical exhibit, in action!

Race of Gentlemen is an exhibition race much like Monmouth Counties old steeple race, "The Hunt" which we all so greatly miss.

There will be an old time program with details on our event; cars, motorcycles, racers, and old time add space, for this nostalgic created race. Also a wreath ceremony at the end of the race with both our mayors of Allenhurst and Loch Arbor.

There will also be a pre party the night before on the beach, with a bon fire provided by our faithful fire department, and live entertainment on the beach. The "Swinging Neck Breakers" of Hoboken, NJ.

There is no admission charge for this pre party, and you may BYOB cans or plastic only. The pre party is on October the 19th at 8pm and will conclude by 11pm
