VIR - Heacock Classic Gold Cup Race & Antique Car Show Tuesday, November 5, 2011

WHERE: Virginia International Raceway, Alton, Virginia

WHEN: November 5, 2011

Please join us for an antique car show hosted by Virginia Old Dominion Meet Association and North Carolina Region at Virginia International Raceway for the Heacock Classic Gold Cup Historic Races & Antique Car Show. Registration will include entry to the Gold Cup Vintage race event, trackside parking, entry to the pits and optional parade laps around the race track. We hope to have an AACA Judging School. Trailer parking will also be available at the track.

This will also be the Fall meeting for the representatives of ODMA. At this time, it looks like the planning meeting will be at 2:30 p.m. We think the parade laps will take place sometime around lunch and the planning meeting will begin after that.

Registration is $5.00 per person in advance only. They cannot offer discounts the day of the event at the gate and I am not sure of the cost if you wish to pay at the gate. Children 15 and younger are admitted free. There will be plaques for the first 150 registrations.<O:p</O:p

To register, please call 434-822-7700 ext. 117 and use the promo code GCAACA11 for the discount. The promo code will be active through October 30. I just called and made our reservations and it went smoothly. If you want them to mail the tickets to you, it is $6.00. If you wait and pick them up at the gate, there is no extra charge.<O:p</O:p

Bring out your antique car and sit back and relax while watching Gold Cup drivers race their restored race cars. This will be a non-judged “fun” antique car show where everyone is able to socialize with their friends without the stress of a judged event. <O:p</O:p

There will be food vendors at the track or you can bring a picnic lunch, but NO glass bottles are allowed at the track. Also, please remember to bring your folding chairs.
