Getting started in Vintage Sports Car Racing takes a bit of understanding of Vintage Sports Car Racing Rules and Vintage Sports Car Classes, both in choosing a suitable organization and appropriate racecar . There are many 'clubs' to race with...VCDA,VSCCA, VSCDA, CVAR, VRG, SVRA,VSCR, HSR, VARA, etc,  and finding one nearby is not difficult.

Although they have similarities in Vintage Sport Car Racing ,  period correctness and aggressiveness in driving, are the main differences between Vintage Sports Car Racing Organizations, as some allow modernized cars and replicas, others do not... and with some the racing is more important than the historic value of the cars, while in others aggressive driving is not tolerated.


Knowing the appropriate Vintage Sports Car Racing Rules and Car Classes is not your only consideration, but is highly important if you are buying , restoring , or preparing a Vintage Sports Car for Racing.



These are the Vintage Sports Car Rules for Preparation of Sports and Formula race cars for Competition,  in 1954 and 1959, as developed by the SCCA for Sports Car Racing events in those periods.

Today, most of the Vintage Sports Car Race Organization in the US require cars entered in their events to be prepared as "period correct " , ...however, most , excepting the prestigous VSCCA,  REQUIRE  in addition,   roll bars , brakes, approved fuel cells, etc that can be found in the 1972 GCR's and Appendix (s).


   ALWAYS... CHECK WITH THE ORGANIZATION YOU INTEND TO RACE WITH ..and learn their specific requiremnents, BEFORE restoring or preparing your Vintage Racing Car
