Stage Set for This Weekend’s Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival

Elkhart Lake, WI — VSCDA event organizer Mike Korneli tells us that registration for the Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival opening today at Road America with a track-sanctioned Test Day had surpassed 310 entries as of Saturday. With online registration closing Tuesday (Sept. 15), that number is sure to go higher.

“We’re pleased that over 40 Historic Sportscar Racing members are joining us as they finally get on a road circuit this year,” Korneli said.

“And although we are not able to do the Road Course Re-enactment, we will host the Gather on the Green concours with a reduced number of cars over a larger space,” he added.

Featured marques for the weekend’s full schedule are Pre-war and Japanese cars.

VM columnist Burt Levy will be at the track’s 7,500-square foot Paddock Shop for book signings from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday through Sunday — fitting since Road America figures prominently in several of Levy’s six-book Last Open Road series. He’ll also have copies of The Last Open Road audiobook that received awards from both the Automotive Heritage Foundation and the American Auto Racing Writers and Broadcasters Association.

Levy will also be covering the event for the Nov/Dec 2020 Vintage Motorsport issue, so be sure to drop by and pass along special story ideas if you’re attending. And be watching and VM’s social media for images coming from photographer Scott Paceley during the weekend.
