The Vintage Sports Car Drivers' Association meet at Blackhawk Farms has become a "must see" for me, because of the cars. It's not important who wins or loses, but I always take my camera. The standard of car preparation is high. The color schemes are nostalgic. The owner/drivers are glad to chat about their cars and how the weekend is going for them.
I may go again to Road America for a pro race. It's a glorious course. And, from a spectator's viewpoint, a long, fast, glorious, course needs fast cars, professionally prepared and driven. But the VSCDA race at lil' ol' Blackhawk (2.0 miles, 7 turns) is 300% of the fun at 5% of the cost.

|Here's a historical footnote: the largest Volvo racing paddock I've ever seen, or expect to see. Maybe it's the Swedish|
racing paddock if you include the SAAB Sonnet at the far right. Is he on probationary membership status? ;-)
