Created in 2022, Vintage Trans-Am (V-T/A) is a throwback to 1960s and 1970s trans-am racing without strict adherence to vintage spec or requiring a proven vintage pedigree. V-T/A seeks to fill a gap in current groups where older generation moderately modified vehicles are left out. These cars are often not allowed in strict vintage race groups and lack competitiveness against newer vehicles. Currently, V-T/A is a SCCA San Francisco Regional class which allows us to run on some of the best tracks on the West Coast. Including, Laguna Seca, Sonoma Raceway and Thunderhill.
Not a Typical Vintage Class
Do you love older muscle cars or vintage cars but wish you could add some modern touches? Maybe you want to take advantage of some of the handling upgrades brought about from the pro touring movement or use upgraded brakes? Good news, V-T/A uses simple horsepower to weight rules to give as broad of a level playing field to as many vintage cars as possible. There are a few restrictions on full tube race cars, sequential and excessive modifications. Some modifications trigger a weight penalty while some are not allowed.
I plan to run this class in the AutoXandTrack 1967 Mustang and hope to see some of you out there!
Vintage Trans-Am Full Competition Rules
The Vintage Trans-Am rules govern which cars are allowed to race in the class. For all other matters, (e.g. safety, driver requirements) the SCCA General Competition Rules will apply. Click here for the SCCA GCRs.
Message from the V-T/A Board
We are excited to welcome you to a new and exciting class in the San Francisco Region of the SCCA! We hope this class grows and gives a home for owners of vintage cars to race on some of the most exciting tracks in the west. Your participation in the class and feedback is welcomed. We want to give a home to as many racers to compete as possible while keeping the playing field level. We believe the initial rules and horsepower-to-weight approach will accomplish this goal. However, the best evidence will be real results. The V-T/A Board will be closely monitoring cars, results and the impact of Weight Penalties and will tweak the rules as needed. The best way to get your voice heard is to come out and race.
