The 2018 running of the Gypsy Tour motorcycle ride benefitting the museum was the most successful in the six-year history of the event. Beginning at Laconia Motorcycle Week Ground Zero at Weirs Beach, more than 70 riders (a record for the event) had a police escort  and police help at every intersection all the way to New Hampshire Motor Speedway. From wheels up to arriving at the track, the ride was uninterrupted.

            When arriving at NHMS, the riders took two laps of the track’s road course, then settled in for an afternoon of enjoying vintage motorcycle racing promoted by Bob Coy. With complete access to the garage and multiple viewing spots to watch the races, many riders lingered before heading to the museum.

            A single $10 ticket paid for everything:  The police-escort ride, laps of the track, watch the races, garage access and a visit the museum.
