What is vintage racing?
Vintage racing is an exciting and challenging way for you to jump in your own vintage race car and race against other enthusiasts! The atmosphere is laid-back and friendly, so you're sure to meet some new friends!
How do I start?
Before you start racing, you'll need a license. Organizations that offer licenses include the Vintage Racer Group (VRG), the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA), and the Vintage Drivers Club of America (VDCA).
If you would like more information about getting a license, get in touch and we'll be happy to help!
Which cars are eligible for vintage racing?
The roster of eligible cars is large and always growing. If you'd like to know if your car qualifies, don't hesitate to get in touch. The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) also has a good list of eligible cars here.
Where and when are the races?
Luckily, vintage racing is a growing sport and there are more races than ever. Races happen from February through December at famous tracks like Watkins Glen, Sebring, Lime Rock, Road America, and COTA. Take a look at our schedule to see what a typical season looks like for us. If there's a race you would be interested in but it isn't there, just let us know! We try new events every year.
How competitive is vintage racing?
One of the great things about vintage racing is it can be as competitive as you want it to be! Every event features some drivers enjoying their car at various race tracks, others always looking to find every last tenth of a second, and everyone in between. No matter how serious you want to be, you'll meet someone like you!
How many races can I participate in per year?
As many as you like! We have some customers who take part in only one or two events a year, and others who race 10 times or more!
How are cars grouped together?
Grouping changes depending on the organizer of the race, but generally cars are grouped by engine size and type of car. For example, most events include at least a "small bore" group, a "big bore" group, and an "open wheel" group.
How much does it cost to go racing?
There are a lot of factors involved, but vintage racing can be enjoyed by people with all sorts of budgets! Give us a call so we can talk about your situation!
