More than 1,500 riders from 140 motorcycle dealerships in seven states already are scheduled to participate in the 16th Mid-Ohio Dealer Ride, an opportunity to ride the 2.4-mile, 15-turn Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. The Dealer Ride takes place August 6, during the lunch break of the Honda Super Cycle Weekend presented by Dunlop Tire.
In addition to the lunchtime lap on Sunday, participants will receive VIP parking in the track's infield, and five lucky riders will have the opportunity to win a pace car ride, a lap of the track and receive a Mid-Ohio merchandise package. The winners will be drawn from the Dealer Ride registration forms and will be announced prior to the ride.
Bike owners interested in taking part in the Dealer Ride can simply visit their nearest participating motorcycle dealership, including all Ohio Honda dealerships, during normal business hours to sign up. A complete listing of participating dealerships can be found at www.midohio.com.
All participating riders must register in advance and bring their dealer registration card with them on Sunday. All riders and passengers must be 18 years of age or older, carry a valid operator's license, and wear a helmet throughout the ride.
Honda Super Cycle Weekend will be the fourth event on Mid-Ohio's eight-race 2006 schedule. Still to come is the Vintage Grand-Prix of Mid-Ohio (August 18-20), AMA Road Race Grand Championships & AMA Motocross Manufacturers Cup (September 22-24) and the AMA Superbike Shootout (September 30-October 1).
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course is owned by TrueSports, Incorporated, Dublin, Ohio, a privately held motorsports entertainment enterprise. The company owns and operates The Mid-Ohio School, and promotes a wide variety of motor racing, driver instruction, corporate, and family entertainment events throughout the year.
