about us

The Race of Gentlemen, or TROG as it is affectionately called, is a multi-day celebration that pays tribute to the early days of racing. Purpose built pre & post war vehicles flood the beaches and battle the tide during this mechanical commemoration. 

These purveyors of speed test the limits of machines built in their home garages or back yards, from across the land! These engineers pilgrimage to the Wildwoods once a year for some good, clean, old fashion fun!

This is "our" American Heritage.

This is... The Race of Gentlemen.

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
