PICKERINGTON, OHIO — Motorcycle daredevils will be thrilling crowds every hour, riding vintage bikes on a vertical wall inside the American Motor Drome Wall of Death at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days July 6-8 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
A crowd favorite, the show features a motor drome — a silo-shaped wooden cylinder 30 feet across — and motorcycle riders performing trick, fancy and acrobatic riding along its vertical wall. Spectators stand at the top of the 14-foot wall and look down as the riders speed around the cylinder, passing within inches of the crowd.
“The Wall of Death riders know how to entertain a crowd and demonstrate amazing riding skills,” said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. “We are happy they are returning to AMA Vintage Motorcycles Days for 2018.”
The American Motor Drome Wall of Death riders will be performing a show every hour during AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days.
