ELKHART LAKE, Wis. - Vintage racers from across the U.S. will take to the track this weekend as Road America hosts the Vintage Sports Car Drivers Association (VSCDA) Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival.

The weekend regularly attracts nearly 300 vintage and historic racecars to run over the three-day event including a field of pre-war models. The fan-friendly paddock is open to spectators for close-up views of amazing racing machines prepared to era-specifications.

On Saturday, fans can watch a historic road course reenactment tour, which will leave Road America and follow a route almost identical to the street course driven in the early 1950s.

In addition to the reenactment tour, the VSCDA will host its special Gather on the Green event, which is a display of over 60 vintage, classic and exotic cars and motorcycles on the back lawn of the Osthoff Resort from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday. Legendary racer, Augie Pabst, is the honored guest for the weekend.

Tickets to the Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival can be purchased at the main gate which opens daily at 7 a.m. Kids 12 and under are free when accompanied by a paying adult.

For more information, call 800-365-7223 or visit www.roadamerica.com.
