The Meet at the LeMay museum in Tacoma, Wash., is coming up fast. The 2013 LeMay Vintage Festival August 24-25 celebrates 90 years of BMW motorcycles, and Motorcycle Classics will be there with Kevin Brooks of Brooks Motor Works and a special display of record-breaking vintage BMWs that Brooks’ racing team runs on the Bonneville Salt Flats. Kevin will present a special seminar on the challenges of preparing and racing vintage BMWs at Bonneville and another on the challenges of vintage BMW restoration.

A nationally recognized BMW restoration and racing expert, Kevin Brooks and his merry band of racers, the Flying Fox Racing Team, have amassed numerous Land Speed records at Bonneville since their first run there in 2007. They’re on their way to Bonneville as I write for their 2013 challenge of the Salt Flats during Speed Week, Aug. 10-16, 2013. When they finish running the salt, Kevin and crew will turn around and head back to Seattle in time to prepare for the Lemay Vintage Festival.
