Road America News: Racers Revisit History at Road America During VSCDA Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival


Vintage racers from across the U.S. will take to the track September 12-14 as Road America hosts the Vintage Sports Car Drivers Association (VSCDA) Elkhart Lake Vintage FestivalĀ®. The annual celebration of vintage and historic sports cars attracts nearly 250 cars to the famed 4-mile, 14-turn road course and the fan-friendly paddock is open to spectators for close-up views of amazing racing machines prepared to era-specifications all weekend. For 2014, the VSCDA intends to pay tribute to sports cars produced from Italian manufacturers as a class feature, allowing fans to see a wide variety of classic sports cars from several world-renowned marques such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Alpha Romeo and Fiat.

For the fifth year in a row VSCDA will hold its popular Cup races. The Kimberly, Sheldon, and Elkhart Lake Cup races will take place on Sunday. These Cup races are based on the original races that were held on the roads in and around Elkhart Lake from 1950 to 1952. The Cup races are sure to be close as grid positions are based solely on times and not classes. There will also be a special 2.5 Liter Trans Am race as the interest and growth of this series continues nationwide.

On Saturday the very popular Street Course re-enactment leaves the track around mid-afternoon. The Street Course re-enactment is a police-escorted tour of the original racecourse that was ran before Road America was established. Along with Watkins Glen, these roads are the only sets of roads to be listed as a National Historic Monument. For 23 years the re-enactment has attracted as many as 100 cars and when the cars are finished with the tour, they park on part of the original street course in the middle of downtown Elkhart Lake for spectators to view until the early evening.

Once the Street Course re-enactment ends the Gather on the Green event begins on the Osthoff resort's back lawn. The Gather on the Green event is a car show featuring a wide variety of spectacular vehicles and motorcycles.
