Saturday, July 10th and Sunday July 11th O’Keefe Ranch will be welcoming back the Vintage Motorcycle Rally Since their last appearance in 2006, a new race track has been put to good use in preparation for the event.
The Okanagan Flattrackers Group has been working hard towards putting on this popular event. Art Gavel, a motorcycle veteran who has been riding since 1947, says “We are happy to be back at O’Keefe Ranch, and encouraged that the new management saw the benefit of this event and pursued the new track and also brought back the Rally. We hope the public will come out and support this event.”
The weekend will be filled with Vintage Bikes on display throughout Saturday and Sunday. From 10 a.m. to noon there will be racing practices with time trials from 1 – 3 p.m. At 5 p.m. there will be Vintage Flat Track Racing with the flaming board wall crash to follow, a crowd favourite. The weekend will continue on Sunday with a memorial ride to Armstrong at 9:30 a.m., and more vintage bikes on display with the awards taking place at 2 p.m.
Free tractor rides for the entire family, as well as the Ranch will be offering family friendly rates for the day of only $20.00 per family (school aged children) and $6.00 per adult.
