Empire Cup: A Celebration of the Iconic Sports Racer
Postponed to Friday - Saturday, July 24-25
Use your credit card an the charge will not go through until the weekend of the event and you will not be charged credit card fees!
The Empire Cup will again be celebrating the Sports Racers of the 1950’s and 1960’s by offering a dedicated grid in this traditional VSCCA event.
• Two full days of racing, plenty of unmuffled track time (at least 7 track sessions over the 2 days)
• This is an unmuffled event.
• This event does have timing and scoring using Transponders.
• Finishing position from the race before will be your grid position for the next race.
• There will be a class for non-VSCCA (post-1959) closed wheel race-cars.
• You can enter both your VSCCA car and a later closed wheel 1960’s – 70s race car.
On Friday night there is a barbecue party at the track. All drivers and crew are invited. However,; volunteers are still needed to help with this gathering. Although this barbecue is free for everyone, donations in the form of wine, beer and sodas will be gratefully accepted. If you can’t bring a beverage to the dinner think of adding an extra donation to your entry fee to help offset the cost to the club. The club does have to pay for all of the extras at the dinner. We would like this dinner to be a social event. Meet your fellow drivers, corner marshals and friends to talk about the days racing.
