Sprite Midget 60th Anniversary
September 14-18, 2018
Elkhart Lake / Road America ELVF VSCDA Event(revised August 29, 2017)
The following is a summary of what is planned and needed. This event is a Race Car Street Car Event with special displays and race group. This is a rough draft, but I wanted to get it out so everyone can assist and promote what will be a one of the best Sprite events held. Wherever Sprite is used in the following automatically includes MG Midgets.
1. Race Cars
1.1. We will have many group 2 race sessions including an exclusive 60th Sprite Midget Race with over 30 Spridgets expected.
1.2. Broader Classifications – we will expand our 8 classification Sprite Midget Race format with the hopes of including current SCCA Spridgets and other classes where needed.
1.3. Special Paddocking near turn 5 for race cars and will encourage using canopies altogether to make it more spectator friendly with access to your trailers and hardware nearby.
1.4. Gathering On The Green Concours
2. Street Cars
2.1. An exclusive Sprite Midget Paddock area near race Spridgets
2.2. A special package that will include: special paddock space, Road America track touring, Banquet, Reenactment of Elkhart Lake Street Course and display in downtown Elkhart.
2.3. You can also apply to the Gathering on the Green Concours where we will have 20 openings for Street Sprites, Race Sprites, Special Bodied Sprites and Big Healeys.
3. Saturday Night Dinner / Banquet - This will be a special night with Road & Track Magazine’s Peter Egan. Peter as many of you know has been entertaining us for years with his Sports Car humor along with starting his racing in a Bug Eye Sprite. In addition we can have more historical information focused on Sprite Racing for that evening as a fill in.
4. Support – We are needing support in the following categories, registration (probably held Thursday night for special street car packages), paddock assistance (Saturday and Sunday), popular vote for Sprites (Saturday Race and Street), honoring past Sprite Racers with a special focus on SCCA National Champions.
5. Regalia – We will be having special regalia labeled with 60th reunion
6. Promotion – We will be rolling out more details to our race series distribution along with other publications.
