Club Motorsports, Tamworth, NH

Eligibility is open to VSCCA cars and guests with VSCCA-type cars as well as small bore front-engine cars with largely stock bodies made up to 1970 (or of that type, a ’73 Alfa GTV is acceptable, for example) and running on treaded tires.

Mt. Equinox Hill Climb

August 10-11, 2024

Mt. Equinox, Arlington, VT

Event Chair: Scott Fenley 215-901-4324

A five-mile, adult roller coaster that climbs 3200 feet. With a newly repaved full course over five miles in length, this is the quintessential VSCCA event, a must if you have not done it. Enter one or both days but do so soon as the event sells out quickly. We will have the traditional Friday night reception and the Saturday night dinner at the charming Arlington Inn.

A great way to end your track season will be the Fall Finale where we again will hold the Litchfield Cup featuring England vs. the Rest of the World. If you enter a car in another Fall Finale class your Pre-War entry, made prior to 1941, will be free! We have a Preservation Group for Saturday. All of our usual entries are welcome, of course, so come and enjoy the glory of the fall colors in the Berkshires.

The 26th Nutmeg Rally

October, 12, 2024

Litchfield County, CT

Event Chairs: Jim Donick 845-635-2373 & Joan Harmer 914-962-2652

The 26th edition is being developed as this is written. This being a "gimmick rally," you should honestly have no trouble staying on course. The objective is to observe your surroundings while on the road and to answer questions, both "simple" and - some have argued - "diabolical."

  • Any and all are invited and you can bring any car!
  • VSCCA Membership not required.

You can enter both your VSCCA car and a later closed wheel 1960’s – 70s race car. We will have a Friday evening party under the tower. Photo by Deb Weil-O'Day.

VSCCA Vintage Racing Drivers’ School

May 3-4, 2024

Our Vintage Racing Drivers’ School is similar to a full-on race school with one major difference – it teaches you about vintage racing and the mind set and attitude essential to get involved. It is a fraction of the cost and you can bring your daily driver. You’ll have a great time and will want to return for VSCCA races, hill climbs and rallies. The school is one of the easiest ways to get into vintage racing and with VSCCA approval in hand, you can participate in other VMC vintage organizations’ events across the country..
