It's great that the big organizers are finally getting interested in us.
In the meantime, we shouldn't forget the smaller not-for-profit organizers
that have been supporting us all along and usually at much lower cost. In
the Southeast we're fortunate to have the VDCA, which has always given us
lots of track time AND has always included a free Enduro. I'm sure there
are similar groups elsewhere that deserve our continued support.
This seems like a good time to remind everyone about VDCA's event coming up
December 11-13 at Roebling Road. In addition to tons of track time and the
free Enduro, they're doing an oyster roast and pig pickin' on Saturday
night. On Friday night the Triumph Ghetto will be doing our usual Surf n'
Turf dinner extravaganza and all Triumph drivers, crew and hangers-on are

2010 Classic MotorsportsB Cup
Announcing a new, four event, mini-enduro road race series for 2010. This
series runs on tracks from Florida to Ohio, and is designed to lower the
and put the fun back into small-bore production car racing. The most unique
feature of this series, is that the entry fee will be FREE to anyone
already entered at that weekendbs regular event.
This series has many unique features, as the pre-1965 requirement will
focus on the MGs, Triumphs, Alfa and Porsche 356s who usually donbt get the
s share of attention at most race weekends. HSR president, Steve Simpson,
states bWe are listening to our customers and with rising costs and more
more focus on newer and faster machinery, we wanted to refocus our efforts
on the guys that make up the back-bone of classic car racing, the small-bore
production racers of the fifties and early sixties.b
SVRA president Howard Turner adds bSVRA is pleased to host the Series at
two of our fine venues, and we look forward to seeing the MGs, Triumphs,
and Porsche 356s get top billing and the significant additional track time.
It should be a big plus for these cars that are the traditional backbone of
our sport,b Classic Motorsports publisher, Tim Suddard says, bWe were
looking for ways to put more fun back into small-bore production racing. The
Mini-enduro format will offer a lot of seat time without adding to the
of a race weekend. A longer format would get too expensive in regards to
consumables like tires and fuel. The mandatory pit stop will really help
racers who want to share rides, which will add to the fun and further lower
Drivers in the series will be urged to pit together at races to further
build camaraderie. The guys at Classic Motorsports, HSR and SVRA will be
throwing a free welcome party on Thursday night of each race weekend to make
the events kick off in a fun and friendlyB atmosphere.
