Due to the current COVID-19 environment, our 2021 events will be conducted with the same COVID protocols used at our 2020 Events. This, by the way, worked very well and did NOT diminish the quality of the racing experience.  Sadly, socializing aspects were compromised. But we’re all getting used to that, are we not?  It means no planned gatherings (e.g. no Sat. catered dinner). Please limit your additional crew members, no spectators, honor distancing measures and enhanced cleaning protocols. And a strong request that masks be worn when  roaming the pits to socialize at a distance.  Racers are of course welcome to bring their own food and dine at the track.  We are expected to adhere to all city, county, state and health department guidelines with respect to social distancing and maximum group sizes, all of which may evolve over the year.  Thank you for your understanding in these difficult circumstances.

It’s time to Spring forward into racing season again! RMVR is back at our home track for the annual opener at High Plains Raceway. 

WlatSchusterThis year we're naming it "The Walt Schuster Shootout"  as a tribute to Walt. He was an SCCA guy who worked as a corner worker at first, and wore a white denim jacket with tons of patches to show his commitment to the sport of racing.  He then became head of race control with SCCA and later became race control with RMVR when the group started in the ’80’s.  He was instrumental in recruiting folks to volunteer, and was also head of control and flags during 1994.  Walt’s long-time involvement with Vintage Racing stood the test of time, which is why this race is dedicating this weekend to Walt Schuster.

We’ve all said it: “I’ll work on my car…next weekend,” and then buried it under the car cover for six months. Well, that weekend is now approaching.  It's time to throw off the cover, get the car ready and and hit the track! 

Always a great opener for our season, this weekend is also a perfect chance to shake down and test your car and make sure it and you are ready to compete this season. Your fellow friends and racing family want you to join the in fun at High Plains Raceway.
