We spent a full day of vintage racing at Road America recently. In short, it was a ball. The long version is below and be warned, it is long.
If you’ve been a regular reader of the Bandit, then you know of our affinity for classic cars. Whether they’re German, Italian, British or Japanese, there’s something about these analog machines that endears them to numerous car enthusiasts across the world.
Car enthusiasts also enjoy motorsport. There is something indescribable about watching cars hurtling at breakneck speed, a few inches apart from each other on challenging racetracks, the noise of their engines providing a more than worthy auditory accompaniment to stunning visuals. Our last motorsport outing was at the Dubai 24 hour race at the Autodrome in January, which we thoroughly enjoyed.
So, what happens when you throw classic cars and motorsport together? You get vintage racing.
