The 33rd "Land O' the Pines Rallye" is again at Diamond Don's Campground.
September 28th – October 1st - 2017

The rallye draws over 300 people displaying over 150 of the finest vintage motorcycles anywhere in the country.  Join us at Diamond Don's Motorsports & RV Park which is just one mile outside of Jefferson, Texas.  Participate in Friday's Field Events, display your bike in Saturday's bike show and ride in the Rolling Concours.  Come enjoy a weekend full of great entertainment and fun.

The rallye moved to Diamond Don’s campground for the first time last year.  This is a beautiful campground located in the woods of East Texas. It is only 1 mile north of Jefferson on Highway 49 with all its antique shops, stores, and restaurants. The campground sits on 100 acres and has 50 RV hook ups along with a dump station. There are clean restrooms and free Wi-Fi. The center of the campground has a huge covered pavilion with a stage, sound system, lighting, and a bar with a fridge. The pavilion will be operating hub of the rallye where we will have the awards ceremony and dinner Saturday night. It has seating for 200 people. There are sprinklers throughout the campground which makes it a nice grassy location with no dust. There is a campground PA system as well. A river runs along the western edge of the campground which is also the route for Don’s vintage train that can be boarded in downtown Jefferson. This location has a large central open area that is perfect for our new field events being held on Friday and for our traditional bike show and rolling concours to be held on Saturday. As an added attraction there is a fenced in alligator pit!

Tentative 2017 Bike Show Classes & Rules

Some rules and classes for this year’s bike show have changed.

All of last year’s winners must enter their bike into the Concours Class.

There are two Pacific Rim classes. Both are for 1991 and older models. One class is for bikes of less than 500cc and the other for bikes of 500cc or greater. The size is based on the bikes description such as CB750 and not the actual engine displacement.

Rolling Concours Rules

This event is open to all street legal motorcycles at least 30-years old. Entrants will be required to complete a relatively short road course to be eligible. A certification stop will be required half way through the ride.  The location to be announced. A chase vehicle will be available to pick up any non-finishers. Upon return, eligible bikes will be parked in an impound area for judging. No wiping or polishing will be allowed in the impound area. We want to see rare bikes in riding condition, so bugs and dirt from the ride are considered a plus!

All riders will receive a participant’s medallion.

Rolling Concours participants must enter their bikes in the bike show to be eligible.
