THE RACE OF GENTLEMEN 2019 | PHOTOS COURTESY OF GODSPEED CO

Brisk, fall, windy weather and whitecaps greeted participants, photographers and fans at The Race of Gentleman in Wildwood, New Jersey this past weekend. Racers hit the local sands as soon as the tides went out, taking a proverbial step back in time to pit antique machines against the elements and one another.

Godspeed Co were on hand with their very own stylish shooter Michael Higgins (@higginsnyc), who captured the feel and mood of the event with some stunning shots of the cars, motorcycles and personalities on show for the three days, Oct. 5 through 7. One image in particular, a tribute to the recently passed Joe Oz, strikes a chord for anyone who knew him.

Check out the incredible gallery from the weekend, generously shared with NYC Motorcyclist by Godspeed Co.
