The Vintage Sports Car Club of America (VSCCA) will hold a vintage car race event at Lime Rock Park, Ct. the weekend of October 7-8 (Fri/Sat). What will be special about this event, is that the 50th Anniversary of the MGA will be celebrated with special ALL MG races Details on the event are being worked on to make it very special for MG racers - and enthusiasts - so start thinking about being there in October!
To support the MG celebration, the VSCCA has graciously opened this event up to ALL MG Racers who are racing member of any vintage racing organization, which belongs to the Vintage Motorsports Council. MG preparation will be as per the member's sanctioning vintage race organization - but this will be a muffled event. A large turnout of MGs is expected to compete - including MGAs, MG-Ts, MGBs, MG Midgets, MG Specials, and Pre-War MGs. Most likely there will be two all MG racing groups (generally older & slower -and- newer & faster) - due to the large number of MGs expected. And all of these MGs will be complimented by the many other wonderful vintage cars in the VSCCA - of all marques - which will be dicing on the track in other classes. VSCCA Event Chairman, Andrew Hiller (an MGA racer himself) is encouraging MG and British car clubs to take advantage of this rare opportunity, and to place this event on their club's calendar of events. Clubs will be able to arrange for a special area for their cars to park inside the track, and their "may be" an opportunity for club MGs to tour (at slow speed) the track during the lunch break. The track does charge a small fee for spectators. And be aware that this is "Vintage Racing", where spectators are allowed to visit the cars in the paddock, and talk with the drivers. This weekend will bring back memories of the past - when new MGs were racing around historic Lime Rock Park (which opened in 1957), with their exhaust echoing off the surrounding hills.
Lime Rock Park - nestled away in the lovely rolling countryside hills of northwest Connecticut - is a wonderful venue for watching vintage car races from - especially in October with the colorful fall foliage. If you or your club would have interest in this event, or you want more information on it, please contact Andrew at: E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or call him at 914-923-6055.
Additional bulletins will be sent out as details on the event fall into place - but start thinking Lime Rock in October NOW!
