Exclamation U.S. Vintage Trans Am Nationals: April 12th, 2008

Hey all of you Trans Am racers, be sure to set aside Saturday, April 12th, 2008 for the Inaugural U.S. Vintage Trans Am Nationals to be held at The Track at Harbor Hobbies in Winthrop Harbor, Illinois.

This event details are still being finalized, but we will be presenting a Trans Am ONLY event based on 6 rounds of heads-up heat racing (best 4 rounds count), and also will include a Concours event, Longest Haul Award, 20-car 50-lap shootout and other fun happenings during that day.



Save the date now, get a hall pass, get off of work and do whatever you need to do to make it out on the 12th of April. It's going to be a don't miss event for years to come.

Race rules will be official U.S. Vintage Trans Am rules found on the USVTA website here: http://www.usvintagetransam.com

The Track at Winthrop Harbor's website is here: http://www.harbor-hobby.net

We will be listing hotel information and any special side events, sponsors and other details as they are confirmed. Race pre-entry forms will be posted here and on the site when they are completed, so stay tuned to this thread for all of the latest info as it develops.



Hope to see you in April!

Sounds like fun...I like the idea of the 50 lap shootout with all those cars.

Is that going to be a TA event only...? I don't want to see stock rubber/stock foams or whatever (12th scale) on this event...just bring 1 car and run 1 car only...

Ok...I think I am in....need to take down that EBAY LISTING now...

Hey Guys,

Which body do you think is the most durable and most realistic out of all of the Trans am bodies out there...not counting reinforcing with tape and etc?

Thx, Mike

Least durable: 'Cuda
Most realistic: 'Cuda




They all tend to be in need of a little "support" for racing conditions.
