I'm planning to attend the VARA and get some pictures Feb 9th and 10th 2008. This always gets me motivated to get my car done. If any one is in the area of Button Willow Raceway around these days PM me. It's a blast. Only 10 whole huge bucks a day or both days maybe.... not sure of that. The cars are listed below.

Its about a 3 hour drive for me but worth it.

It is recognized that steel/factory type body parts are difficult to obtain for some cars. Body parts of fiberglass or other materials may be substituted without affecting classification if the car’s weight is the same or more that of steel bodied cars. Substitution of fiberglass or other materials that results in reduced vehicle weight may result in re-classification into a faster class.

Cars must compete as they were originally configured and raced.

C.4 HISTORIC (Pre-War)

Pre-War sports and race cars are especially encouraged. This class may also include postwar examples in some cases.

Entries of special interest will be individually reviewed to promote their participation in competition. Historic cars will be run in VARA classes commensurate with their performance potential, and receive competition points and awards as the Historic winner in the particular class. Examples: All pre-war cars, Morgan 3 Wheelers, Alfa Romeo Monza, MG T/C etc

The Exhibition Class is designed to allow cars with significant race history to compete in a group not consistent with VARA's traditional class structure.

Acceptance is on a one race basis. No definite year cutoff is proposed. Tires and other equipment should be as raced in period. All VARA General Vehicle Safety Standards will be adhered to.

Acceptance is by application, with approval by VARA Classification Committee and the recommendation of the Race Chairman.

Exhibition cars will show in official race results but shall not accrue championship points.

The Exhibition class is not intended for the purpose of allowing cars which are not eligible, due to year of manufacture or other, to race with VARA
