2020 VSCDA Vintage Grand Prix AuGrattan XXXIV

2020 VSCDA Grattan Summer Party Invitation

The 34th Vintage Grand Prix AuGrattan offers the best value in vintage racing, with more track time per day on one of the most challenging race tracks in the Midwest!  You just haven’t raced until you have raced at Grattan!  Find out what makes this event so special as we combine racing with social distancing in one fun-filled weekend. 

The safety of all involved from workers to drivers and crew is our priority.  With the current uncertainty of what local and state COVID-19 orders and guidelines will be by August, VSCDA has created a safety plan that meets or exceeds any current CDC or state-mandated guideline which will ensure all who participate will race in a manner that protects everyone’s health.  The paddock areas, crew, drivers meetings, and any activities that would normally have people grouped together will require social distancing and be restrictive. The health and safety of everyone is foremost to us; all who attend will be mandated to comply. 

Please join us as we welcome the Featured Marque; S2000 racers, along with the Great Lakes Vintage Challenge, The Trans Am Series races, Formula Vee series, and Spridget Race series in a racing weekend that you will not easily forget!  

Our weekend of racing will provide special opportunities to benefit the Disabled American Veterans, where a small donation will get you a ride in a race car or a sports car to experience this magnificent roller coaster track on our Sunday Rides for Charity event.  For our drivers, we will once again host an Enduro race to also support the Disabled American Veterans charity, sponsored by Jeff Porasik/Raymond James Advisors.

Come see for yourself why this is the “Must attend” event of the summer.  You simply cannot pass up the value in the amount of track time, challenging wheel-to-wheel racing, coupled with the paddock friendships and food.  We hope to see you there!   

Please be aware-We are racing during unprecedented times.  VSCDA will monitor and update our events as needed to meet current requirements concerning social distancing, large gatherings, and safety of workers, crew, and drivers.  As we return to racing, we will do it responsibly; this will mean changes to the “normal” track routines, please adhere to all guidelines as we work through this serious health crisis, a final implementation plan will be available as the event nears.

Paddock

Paddocking at Grattan is graciously being handled by Kathy Newton again this year.

All paddock spots will need to be preassigned.

If you attended last year you will very likely have the same spot or near the same as last year.

If you did not attend last year, it’s a very easy process.  Please contact Kathy Newton to be assigned a spot, and a map will be handed out at the track when you check in at registration.

Here is Kathy Newton’s Contact information:
