Vintage Sports Car Club of America (VSCCA) and Vintage Racer Group (VRG) joined forces once again for their 9th annual Vintage Motorsports Festival last weekend at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Northeastern Connecticut.
More than 100 entries filled out the paddock as the weather was picturesque throughout the weekend. VM contributor and ace photographer Bill Stoler made the trip to take in and share the sights.
One notable entry was this 1959 JOMAR Mk II. Alex Saidel races the car built by his father, Ray Saidel, who imported TVR chassis and created the JOMAR cars.
Ray won an E-Modified race with the MK II on Oct 4 1959 at the Old Thompson Speedway road course. Jomar usually raced in G modified – but this car was bumped to E- Modified because of the “Sharrock Supercharger” mounted on the 1100 CC Coventry Climax engine.
