The Vintage Sports Car Drivers Association is out of the gate early, announcing plans to host the 60th Anniversary Reunion Celebration of Formula Vee at Road America in September 2023.
Following up on the success of VSCDA’s spectacular Formula Ford 50th at Road America in 2019, the midwest vintage racing group plans to invite every vintage and variant of Volkswagen-powered single-seat Formula Vees, 1963-present, including air-cooled and water-cooled Super Vees and 1600cc Formula First machines.
“’Formula Vee in 23′ is going to be a spectacular event, and VSCDA is thrilled by the response to the announcement,” said Alex Rorke, VSCDA President. “A sign of the enthusiasm the Vee community is showing for our 60th Anniversary Reunion Celebration is that FV stalwarts Phil Cull and Butch Deer have agreed to be Honorary Event Chairs. Further, Saturday will feature the DRE Cup Race and the winner will go home with the DRE Trophy, one of vintage racing’s most significant achievements.”
“As with our Formula Ford 50th reunion, this will be a world-class experience,” explained VSCDA Vice President Jim Donato. “For the first time, all Vee varieties will be brought together for a major event. We are delighted that it will be held at Road America, one of the planet’s finest racing facilities,”
“Formula Vee’s popularity is due to its comparative affordability built around original VW engines. Because the cars’ performance capabilities are very similar, a Formula Vee race can be counted on to have many cars in very close nose-to-tail competition, making the races highly exciting for participants and spectators,” said Don Carone, who is Chair of the Reunion Celebration for VSCDA and races a Formula Vee.
Bob Shedd, VSCDA Board member and FV restoration specialist, added: “To all my Formula Vee racing friends, this is the time to start planning on attending the 60th reunion celebration and getting to work on that Vee you haven’t raced over the last few years.”
VSCDA is the leading organization sanctioning and managing vintage racing in the Midwest, holding five race weekends annually. Hundreds of vintage cars race at VSCDA’s events, and the Vee in 23 Reunion will headline VSCDA’s 38th year at Road America.
