The VSCCA has long been accepted as the Guardian of the Prewar Sports Car in North America. Over the past three years the Prewar grid has grown to be the best you will find in this country.
In addition to the exclusive grid for both Prewar we will also be having a “Touring Group”, much like Lime Rock is debiting at the Historic Festival 37. More details to be announced shortly but think of it as a cross between Preservation and Exhibition.
As many of you know, Dan Davis, director/owner of Victory Lane is not only a vintage protagonist for many decades, he has also been an avid Prewar advocate. Dan has been very supportive of the VSCCA’s efforts to keep Prewar cars at our events. This year, as he’d did last, Dan will sponsor the VSCCA Prewar Celebration Cup, to be given annually, by Victory Lane. This is an award of national significance and it will recognize not only the best prepared Prewar but also the most appropriately driven in the Prewar grid at the Fall Finale.
Again this year there are two incentives for the Prewar owner!
1.) Enter a postwar vehicle at the regular entry fee, and bring a prewar car at no additional charge!
2.) Participate in the LRP Historic Festival on the Labor Day weekend with your Prewar car and receive a $100 credit towards your Prewar entry at the Fall Finale
Approved, non-VSCCA members are also welcome to The Prewar Celebration. If you know of someone interested that is not a club member, application to Charles Bordin for consideration to participate in the Fall Finale is all that is necessary.
Our many VSCCA prewar protagonists are excited, actively recruiting participation both within and outside our ranks. The Fall Finale is destined to have a Prewar showing the likes that our club, or any other for that matter, has not seen in a very long time.
Prewar cars as defined by the VSCCA are cars manufactured prior to 1940 or made during or after WWII which continued to be manufactured using prewar design and technology and original period parts (e.g. Prewar based specials, MG TC, late 1940’s HRG, Derby Specials as accepted by the VSCCA).
On Saturday we will have track time for our new Toring Class. This is a great way to introduce enthusiast to the club or to do some laps in a second car. All VSCCA eligible cars qualify and cars pre-’75 on a case-by-case basis (a ‘74 MGB or Etype, ok, for example).
The Touring Class is free for two-day registered Fall Finale participants who bring an approved second car and $250 for anyone entering the Touring Class but has not otherwise entered the event. Each entrant will get four sessions on Saturday.
All Touring Class participants will need to register and attend the driver’s meeting morning and a special Touring Class Drivers Meeting after that. Their cars would need to complete a tech inspection prior to going on track and fill out a special Touring Class inspection sheet (to be provided to entrants prior to the event). Noteworthy requirements are as follows:
- Mounted and secure fire extinguisher
- Current (2010 or later) Snell approved helmet (nomex not required)
- Seat belts (passenger type acceptable)
- Tires in acceptable condition (treaded and not cracking)
- Brake fluid fresh in appearance (old, dirty brake fluid would fail)
- Brake lights in working order
On track passing is allowed by point-by on the front straight up to the 500 foot marker and on No-Name straight. No passing of designated pace car(s).
