In some enthusiasts minds, mine included, vintage auto racing is the best form of motorsport. The people involved are laid back and are there to enjoy themselves. The cars are special, but not always in the way one might think. Sure, there are often multi-million dollar, irreplaceable machines, but many are every day cars that are prepared for racing the way they would have been “back in the day”. The focus is on fun and keeping the old cars alive and giving car geeks a chance to see the old machines in action.
The folks at the Vintage Automobile Racing Association of Canada are working to expand the fan base for the sport by exposing internet users to the action in the form of racer profiles. The first episode from the series features Gary Allen and his lovely 1982 Porsche 911 SC. Allen competes in the popular G70+ class which provides a place for cars from the 70’s and 80’s to race and the grids tend to be more than a little bit exciting.
