Thanks for your commitment and support!

2017! What a Great Year for Vintage Sports 2000 N.A.

Just a quick thank you to all of our sponsors for their contribution to another great year for Vintage Sports 2000 North America.

The club continues to grow as more racers become interested in racing Sports 2000. A true testament to this was the 40th anniversary event at Road America in July where 52 Sports 2000 cars, drivers, and crews show up for a great weekend.

The racing, and fun at our Saturday night socials has produced an atmosphere that is hard to find with any other race group. All the our members have expressed their appreciation and said they are committed to using your products and services.

That being said it is important to realize that your continued support and commitment to VS2 N.A. has helped produce the excitement at our events. With your support our club continues to grow and expand.

The attendance level for this year was between 20 to 30 cars at each event. We are planning to participate in 8 to10 races in 2018. I will send out the schedule to you as soon as it is finalized.

In addition to our usual events we are looking to include Road Atlanta and Motorsport this coming year. I will reach out to all of you in the next few weeks to discuss 2018 and how we can continue to earn your support and commitment to Vintage Sports 2000 North America.

Again, the members, crews, and Board of Directors thank you for your commitment and support of our grass roots club racing.

Denny Gernert Vintage Sports 2000 Board of Directors/ Sponsor Chair.

An Unscheduled Stop!

New Jersey

October 21 and 22 NJMSP, Thunderbolt track

Six S2’s showed up for the SCCA, Jersey Road Racing Classic ( The Jerk!) at Thunderbolt.
Plenty of track time with a test day on Friday 10/20. We had three sessions on Saturday and a
feature race on Sunday.

The South Jersey Region of the SCCA was happy to have us, ran a good show, and even gave
Burns Moore all of his money back when his P2 had motor problems after he ran Friday’s first
test session ( could you see SVRA doing that?)
The weather was great and the event was enhanced when the South Jersey Region combined two
sedan groups into one, giving everyone extend time in each session.

The feature race was won by:

  • Brent Gernert in S2
  • Jim Hanna in VS2
  • Rob Dusek in HS2

    Road America, 40th Anniversary

    Road America

    Storied Road America, 40th anniversary of Sports 2000, 52 S2’s entered, beautiful facility, great people, good food, and it only rained one afternoon. What more could you want? Personally I’d like the track to be closer to my home so I could run it more.

    Well, We could have used a little less enthusiasm at the start of the qualifying race. Turn one
    saw a number of cars off, with one pointed in the wrong direction. As the field moved on, it
    spread out over the 4 mile track. The racing became more reasonable until an over zealous driver
    spun and came back on to soon taking out Steve Groh’s beautiful 83 Tiga, ending Steve’s
    weekend.

    Our feature race saw a clean start but only lasted 4 laps when a Carbir lost it big time in Canada
    corner creating a black flag / checker, ending the race. The top ten cars were all from Wisconsin,
    or a state away, except for Brent Gernert from PA ( fifth ) and Mark Brannon from AZ ( eighth )

    Mid-Ohio

    SVRA Mid Ohio June 22-25, 2017

     

    A little of this, a little of that.

    Thursday’s test day was hot and humid, Friday was a wash out, except for the great VS2 Social created by Henry Payne and held in Jim Kelly’s Speed Unlimited paddock.

    The weekend weather turned beautiful and on the track we had a little of everything, a couple of rolling chicanes here, a V8 brick or two with no discernible mirrors ( Group 5 cars )

    But the best thing was the S2000 races. Everyone played nice but gave no quarter. Both Saturday and Sunday had close racing at the front, and all through the pack.
    Brent Gernert qualified on the pole and had a fast clean race with Mark Coombs, who finished first on Saturday.

    Sunday saw Gernert, Coombs, Sherwood, and Henry Payne IV vying for the lead when they came upon a Group 5 car. As they came upon the slower car, Gernert got two wheels off and spun. Coombs went on to another well deserved win.
