VSCCA Empire Cup: A Celebration of Sports Racers

Lime Rock Park

About this event

The Empire Cup brings together three clubs including the VSCCA (and other VMC racers), HRG and the Empire Drivers (HDPE) Touring Groups.

  • This registration is for VSCCA race groups only!   Please see the next point if you do not plan to enter a VSCCA race group.

  • For HRG and Empire Drivers (HDPE) Touring Groups please use entry form:  Empire Cup Entry Form 2024.pdf or contact Charles Bordin at cbordin123@aol.com or 914-968-5700.


 

  • Save $50 by entering by May 17!

The Empire Cup will again be celebrating the Sports Racers of the 1950’s and 1960’s by offering a dedicated grid.

  • 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. Bring your own as none will be available for rental.
  • Finishing position from the race before will be your grid position for the next race.
  • VSCCA will have 3 groups and accept appropriate cars through the early '70s.
  • HRG will run in 1 group for non-VSCCA (post-1959) closed wheel race-cars.
  • Empire Drivers' Club will have have 2 touring groups (HPDE)  for experienced drivers with street or race cars. The groups are divided by lap time. Important: This registration is for VSCCA race groups only. For HRG and Empire Drivers (HDPE) Touring Groups, please use this PDF entry form or contact the Event Chair Charles Bordin at cbordin123@aol.com or 914-968-5700.
  • On Friday we will have a party at the track.  The  party is free and everyone is invited. Donations in the form of wine, beer and sodas will be gratefully accepted. If you can’t bring a beverage to the party think of adding an extra donation to your entry fee to help offset the cost to the club. Your donation also goes to help offset the volunteer corner workers and stewards  costs of coming to the event to keep you safe on track.  The club does have to pay for all of the extras at the party.  We would like this party to be a social event. Meet your fellow drivers, corner marshals and friends to talk about the day's racing.
  • If you would like to donate to the Friday night party and to the volunteer marshals (flaggers, corner works, etc.) please do so online - towards the end of this registration, or mail a check made out to VSCCA, Inc. to Charles Bordin, 9 Leatherstocking Lane, Scarsdale, NY 10583.
