VRG Thompson Historic Festival, 2017


A study in considerate weather, well-run event, great people and lotsa good racing!


Brown & Bain take to the Circuit with Spitfires on song. Another great VRG weekend with lots of track time, cooperative weather and good racing aplenty!


Cooperative Weather?? Showers held off nicely on both Thursday and Friday and the track got dirty with all the VRG and VSCCA racing. Saturday AM & the front came thru and cleaned it all up sacrificing only the morning practice. Skies blued, clouds gone, with sun abundant for the afternoon’s races. Above center: It came down: Tom had to drain the tent so he and Brian could sit it out…above right.


Results: A pair of podiums for Bain and Brown in both Friday’s and Saturday’s races! Spitting fire has its unfair advantages!! Well done Tom who’s keeping up with less HP but considerable finesse. Good clean racing, good fun and a BIG thank you to the Thompson organization, Vintage Racing Group and the VSCCA for making it happen.
