October 4-6, 2013: Vintage Volvo Challenge at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

Post by volvie! on Fri Apr 12, 2013 9:54 pm

Hi Everyone,

The Vintage Volvo Challenge is BACK!
(Remember the 2010 Volvo Historic Races at Sears Point? Check out some videos on our YouTube Page)

Alan Berry has invited us to participate and/or attend again this year!

This year the races are scheduled over the October 4-6, 2013 weekend at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Las Vegas Motor Speedway
7000 Las Vegas Blvd North
Las Vegas, NV 89115
(702) 644-4444
Google Map of Las Vegas Motor Speedway (will open in a new tab/window)

Vintage Volvo Challenge website:
http://volvochallenge.com/

Cars that qualify for the Volvo group as well as regular run groups:

1979 and older Volvo or Saab powered cars, production, tube frame okay or unique sports racers. Anything else would have to be approved by VARA. All cars will need to be equipped with typical safety gear including five point harnesses, roll bar or cage, fire system, fuel cell, external cut off switch, etc. and will be subject to a VARA tech inspection prior to racing. All rules can be viewed at vararacing.com

“Spectators and Car Show Participants will pay $15 at the gate for the full weekend. Entrants will get two gate passes with each entry.

Low hotel group rate for racers, car show entrants and spectators is currently being negotiated by VARA. I will post details as soon as I have them.

If interested in racing/attending, please refer to the website for event details/costs and updates.

If you have any questions, please contact Alan Berry directly: alanb at alanberrydesign dot com
