About this event
RMVR Fall Sprints
Pueblo Motorsports Park
September 9-10, 2023
Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing will celebrate the arrival of fall in our 40th Anniversary Season with a weekend of classic vintage sprint races at Pueblo’s historic road course. And to add a touch of whimsy, Chevrolet’s controversial Corvair is the featured marque.
Sneer if you will, non-believers; the Corvair chalked up an impressive list of American ‘firsts’ when it hit the streets as a 1960 model, and nearly 1.8 million Corvair vehicles were produced before production ceased on May 14, 1969. Many young enthusiasts of the era learned about oversteer behind the wheel of a Corvair.
And here’s a little-known fact: The first air-cooled flat six Porsche was built by Chevrolet; a 356 coupe converted as a Corvair drivetrain test vehicle! Click HERE for additional Corvair historical tidbits.
We don’t envision a Corvair run group or flood of Corvair racers in Small Bore – the plan is to invite local and regional Corvair clubs to drive their cars to the track to enjoy some lunchtime parade laps. A parking area will be reserved for the Corvairs, and we’ll have the opportunity to swap lies with the owners at Saturday evening’s Happy Hour.
SATURDAY 9/9/23 HAPPY HOUR
Happy Hour is open to all volunteers and competitors. We’ll have beer, soft drinks and water, plus some sort of handy snack food. There is no charge, but there will be a donation plate for contributions to the Worker Fund.
Bonus! PMP will host RMVR-ONLY open lapping on Friday, September 8. It’s perfect for getting your Pueblo groove re-established. To register for Friday lapping, visit PMP’s web site HERE.
