Pre-War features will be held in 2017 at Hallett, Buttonwillow, Sonoma, Blackhawk, Lime Rock and Road America with details soon. The Pre-War Sports and Racing Car Association is promoting this movement and in some cases organizing the features.

2016 Tuesday, September 13: New Would-Be Vintage and Historic Racers Best Car Choices for 2017 Vintage Racing Schools

Perhaps the best choice is the fully vintage racing prepared car bought from a friend just off the race track and the friend guarantees to help prepare you and the car for school. That doesn’t happen often, but it’s a great idea.

There is also the car that the would-be racer is preparing in the garage or having done at the local vintage race prep shop whose schedule guarantees it will be ready for some assisted on-track tune and test sessions before school. Then again it may not be ready or reliable. I just listened to the sad tale of a lost vintage license opportunity due to lack of preparation and an unreliable car.

A good option for the upcoming VARA and CVAR schools is the availability of renting a guaranteed ready car available at both schools.

Info for VARA can be found at: http://www.vararacing.com.

Info for CVAR can be found at: http://www.corinthianvintagerace.com.

2016 Monday, September 12: Info for Spectators, Enthusiasts Who are Would-Be Vintage Racers: The Early 2017 Vintage Racing Schools are in January with VARA in California and CVAR in Texas
