The Race of Gentlemen (TROG)

March 9, 2019

Starting at $40

On March 9, 2019, The Race of Gentlemen (TROG) will be brining drag racing back to the streets of Santa Barbara.  TROG will exhibit their hand-selected group of gentlemen and gentlewoman, who will showcase their pre and early post-war machines “street racing” with the beautiful backdrop of palm trees and ocean views at the Hilton Beachfront Santa Barbara.  Santa Barbara County held the first sanctioned street races in 1949.  The tradition continued at the Goleta airport for more than 20 years and included one of James Dean’s final races before his death.  Ninety years after that first sanctioned race, the City of Santa Barbara will be closing off Cabrillo Blvd to display the power of what pre-1947 American built hot rods and tank-shift motorcycles can do in 990 feet!
