RMVR July charity race to kick off two-year Vee 60th festivities

By

Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing’s Race Against Kids’ Cancer (RAKC), presented by GeoRipper and benefitting charity partner The Morgan Adams Foundation returns to High Plains Raceway on the July 30-31 weekend.

This year’s vintage racing charity event on the popular Deer Trail, Colo. (east of Denver) HPR road course, will kick off a very special two-year “Veevergnügen festival series” culminating in 2023 with the 60th anniversary of Formula Vee.

Veevergnügen (like Fahrvergnügen, only better) is loosely translated as “The Pleasure of Vees,” and these iconic single-seater race cars of all years and vintages are invited to the 2022 and 2023 RAKC weekends. There will be awards and prizes given to a variety of different cars and winners each year.

Of particular note, all past SCCA (1964-2021) and SVRA (2014-2021) national overall FV champions are invited to race the Vee festivals this year and next free of charge. Other Vee drivers will find this event to be one of the best values in racing anywhere with lots of Saturday-Sunday track time for only $385, (Friday testing is available at HPR at an additional cost and organized by the track.)

Ohioan Randy Pobst isn’t an FV champion but he has claimed many a World Challenge title and race win, and will be our special pro racer guest again this year competing in a vintage Vee! Post has an uncanny ability to jump in any car and just drive the wheels off of it (watch this YouTube video of his exploits in an FF at the 2021 RAKC) and we expect he’ll be both fast and competitive in a Vee. Come see how you stack up against a serious pro!

Joining Post (pending finalization of his pro racing schedule) will be Tanner Foust, VW ambassador, who has appeared at previous RMVR charity ProAm races.
