Rough, rowdy and raw, a swarm of traditional hot rods and motorcycles took to the beach in Wildwood, New Jersey, over the weekend for the 2018 Race of Gentlemen. With snarling flatheads, hot inliners and potent V-twins, these pre-war machines battled head-to-head for a full weekend of racing action. Minimal traction—maximum fun.

In the past few years, we’ve told different pieces of the Race of Gentlemen tale in the pages of The Rodder’s Journal. Since there aren’t any space constraints here on our blog, we’re showcasing the full TROG experience, as photographed by Thom Metz, Mike Limerez and Dean Coryell. Let’s hit the beach!
