Ducstock 2012 at Barber Vintage Festival and Motogiro South Details

We’re taking it to the streets!

Join us for our 2nd annual Ducati.net Ducstock get together during the 2012 Barber’s Vintage Festival.  Here’s what we have in the planning:

Event dates: October 11th – 14th, 2012

Location: Barber Motorsports Park, Birmingham, Alabama

Triumph is the focused brand this year at Barbers Vintage Festival so Ducstock II is taking a different approach, and focusing on the camaraderie and riding. We recognize that it’s pretty hard to top a good group of Ducati people getting together to ride, tell stories and drink cold beverages and we are not inclined to mess with that time honored formula. We decided to start with an epic ride.  We can’t think of ANYTHING more fun to ride in than an Italian Motogiro style event so we are kicking off the weekend with a great one.

Here’s what we have so far:

We’ve joined up with the Motogiro-USA group and lured them out of the NE USA to do a Motogiro South at Barber’s.   Sponsored by VintageMotos Museum, Motogiro South is a celebration in honor of our friend Jim Dillard, who was about as good a friend a little vintage bike could ever ask for.  That’s Thursday. Friday begins the Ducati.net set up at the racetrack and the hotel gatherings (we have our own private great room for bench racing and story telling by the full bar)  We have moved to the main hotel to the Hilton, in the same shopping park as last year so that wonderful curvy road to the track is still all our’s to enjoy daily….

Motogiro South is a one day event and will be extremely limited event entry and will sell out in advance. ENTRIES ARE OPEN:  www.motogiro-usa.com

Motogiro-USA rules apply – Vintage class maxes out at 305 cc.  (touring class for everybody else is still under discussion, we would love to have one, so stay tuned)

Wednesday night Motogiro South check in (Ducstock Basecamp Hotel)

Thursday – Motogiro South and Motogiro South dinner

Friday lunch ride to the Whistle stop Cafe

Fri/Sat/Sun Ducstock VIP  area trackside for race viewing, bike parking, shade and cold water

Saturday (we are thinking bike show, lots of ideas still in play at the moment because there is so much to do already as anybody that has been to the BVF weekend knows. There isn’t a need to re-invent the wheel here if you know what we mean)

Ducstock Central Hotel (aka, the place to be):

Event tickets are on sale now, best deal in racetrack events ever $40 advance purchase for the 3day weekend:  Barber Vintage Festival Tickets  (you need this for track entry, Ducstock is not selling it’s own event tickets this year)

Stay tuned for more on this including the Ducstock package details (which we are trying to cap at under $50)
