Vintage Racer Group Announces 21st Annual Vintage Festival at New Hampshire Motor Speedway May 17-22, 2011
The Vintage Racers Group (VRG) announced today the 21st annual Vintage Racing Celebration at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
“As the premier vintage racing event on the East coast, this year’s Vintage Festival promises one of the biggest yet featuring road racing, oval track racing, a classic car show, flea market and live entertainment,” said John Kieley, VRG Event Chairman.
From Tuesday, May 17, to Sunday, May 22, history will come alive as legendary racing machines from around the world gather to compete in the 21st Annual Vintage Racing Celebration.
Beginning Tuesday, May 17, through Thursday, May 19 some of the world’s best vintage midgets, sprint cars, champ cars, roadsters and NASCAR stock cars will race on the speedway’s 1.058-mile oval.
From Friday, May 20, through Sunday, May 22, New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s tricky 1.6-mile road course will challenge vintage road racers from around the world. Classic car enthusiasts can see vintage sports cars, formula cars and motorcycles compete for bragging rights on the 12- turn NHMS course.
The road racing event will feature race groups including open wheel Fr JR to S2000, small bore and big bore production and sports cars.
“What makes this event so unique are all of the activities and amenities combined with, perhaps, the lowest entry fee of any US vintage event. There are plenty of local accommodations or you can take advantage of the track’s infield camping area with hookups. Garage spaces are available for all participants. There is a free welcome reception on Friday night, a traditional lobster bake on Saturday night and tons of track time!” said Kieley.
Online entry forms and event details are available on the VRG website www.vrgonline.org.
