The mid-west based Vintage Sports Car Drivers Association (VSCDA) has
announced that John Fitch will be an honored guest at their fall event at
Road America Sept 10-12. John won major races there in 1951 and 1952. This
event is part of Road America's 60th Anniversary celebration.
Mike Treptow (Milwaukee area) and I (central Illinois) think it would be
appropriate for Fitch Sprints owners to be present. Beginning late next
week we will be making contacts with the staff's of Road America and the
VSCDA to determine if or how Fitch Sprint owners and enthusiasts can be
incorporated into the event.
We have made the event known to the combined CORSA and CPF BoDs with the
idea of maybe getting CPF's recently restored Fitch Sprint at the event.
This car was John's original LM demonstrator and was at CORSA Convention two
If you are a Fitch owner or enthusiasts, please contact both Mike
[mb.treptow at sbcglobal.net] and myself [ricebugg at mtco.com] so we can
determine interest as we contact the event organizers next week. We will
put together a e-mail list to keep you informed.
Please remember it is our understanding Rd America and the VSCDA have their
schedule pretty well firmed up. Nothing may come of this. But it is a
question worth asking them.
