Here are some pics of the Brian Redman Classic at Road America this past weekend. All Vintage race cars. Real Vettes. Real Cobras. Real Trans AM cars. Real Can Am cars

This just makes me sick as I have driven some of those cars.

Apparently after pace car exitted, GREEN flag was NOT waved but rear of pack thought race was ON, sped up to catch up to leaders, who had slowed to 50 MPH.

So this all happened on the false grid BEFORE the start of the race.

Yunz finally did it ,made a grown man cry, seeing all of those vintage racers totaled. What a waste. We just had The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, last weekend, mostly old British cars but entertaining . Runs on city park roads ,with a few races held at BeaveRun. Wishing to attend older Vetts, Ford ,Pont. etc. races.

As bad as that is, at least they had fun with the cars before the accident. Some guys never fully enjoy their cars. They stick them away in garages with the outside chance that they might make more money back on them someday than just putting the money in a regular old savings account.

Plus, these guys can still fix them. I doubt that they're totalled. This just adds a little patina. A little character.
