Event Update

Rally fans won’t want to miss the familiar, like the Peter Makris Memorial Ride, the FIM North American Vintage Championships, Mae West Memorial Pet Run, Cruise on the M/S Mt. Washington, Gunstock Hill Climb, the Ride to the Sky up the Mt. Washington Auto Road, and the New Hampshire Motor Speedway Loudon Classic.

Fans love the motorcycle demos, daily Gypsy Tours, and live music at venues throughout the region including the Naswa Resort, the Looney Bin Bar & Grill, Party Central at the Patio Garden Restaurant, and Tower Hill Tavern. Rally veterans and first-timers alike will enjoy newer events such as the Laconia Short Track Race (see below) and Hill Climb Expo up Tower Street in Weirs Beach.

Last year, hundreds of spectators had a front row seat to motorcycles of all shapes and sizes racing up Tower Street (site of the original 1916 Hill Climb). This year’s Hill Climb Expo has been expanded to 3 hours (10:30am – 1:30pm on June 11). Look for more racers, more action . . . more speed!

A Rally First: Flat Track Races

For the first time ever, American Flat Track will bring its Laconia Short Track Race to NH Motor Speedway. The event will take place at their newly constructed 1/4 mile dirt track and feature motorcycles in the AFT Twins and AFT Singles classes, racing to earn points towards a national championship. This spectator-friendly event takes place on Saturday, June 15 from 8am – 5pm. Tickets can be purchased online https://tickets.americanflattrack.com/2019-laconia-short-track.html

Charity Spotlight

The spirit of giving is alive and well at Laconia Motorcycle Week. We host multiple charity rides every year, raising funds for incredible causes including our official kick-off event, the Peter Makris Memorial Ride, which has raised over $400K for our local community and Veterans Count Program.

Continuing the tradition of charity is the 2nd Annual Speedway Children’s Charities NH Chapter Ride For the Kids from NH Motor Speedway. On Wednesday, June 12 at 9am, join hundreds of other riders as they start off with a 3-lap ride around “The Magic Mile” of NH Motor Speedway before heading over to the beautiful coast of New Hampshire. The ride ends at Seacoast Harley-Davidson in North Hampton and includes a barbecue lunch and commemorative patch. Best of all, it raises money for the NH Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities, an organization that, since its inception, has provided close to $1.7 million, supporting nearly 750,000 children throughout the northeast. Your $50/Rider & $25/Passenger registration fee directly supports their efforts. Thank you!
