Hey everyone! Just getting the starting details of the 2010 Vintage Offroad Nationals posted for now so everyone can get some more time this year to plan ahead. The race will Sept 16-19th, that's right RCHR is opening its doors a day early to let everyone get some extra track time and leave a day open in the schedule for a few ideas I'm working on too! I couldn't be happier to see the race come back for it's third year and am honored to once again have it at RCHR! The facility is the best around for vintage racing and the owners are second to none! Here's a few quick notes for you guys until I get more solid details posted

Airports: Bradley International Airport in Hartford, CT is the nearest to the track. If your airline doesn't fly into there, look into any of the greater New York City airports as well as Westchester Airport. NYC is only an hour and a half from the track and Westchester is less than an hour.

Hotels: The best hotel for the race is the Holiday Inn Express in Waterbury. I'm currently working on a discounted rate for the race attendees so stay tuned.

Getting your stuff to the race: Unlike a lot of races I try to make the VO Nats as personal of an experience as possible. While I can't speak for the track owners, I'm sure shipping your stuff to the track wouldn't be a problem, please just call and speak with them. My bigger purpose in this note is to offer myself. If you would like to ship your stuff to my house, I'll be more than happy to bring it all up to the track for you and even drop it off at the PO of UPS the following monday. A third option is bringing it with you on the plane (if you're flying). I would suggest a metal footlocker , lockable hard plastic tubs or a hard case like those used for transporting musical equipment. You can find tour cases for musical equipment at any good sized music store or on the internet. I would suggest packing everything as tightly as possible and filling any empty space with towels to provide some cushioning. I also have a case if someone would like to borrow it. Just send me a ups label and I'll send it to you.

i think it's ok. it helps the guys who race keep costs down by running their modern electronics that they already own.
i know i appreaciate it.
