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.


Visit http://www.rchr.biz for track info and pictures. Hope to see you all in September for a great weekend of racing, fun and gorgeous New England fall weather!

I have several vehicles in various stages of their build that will be used at this race. I'm looking forward to it! The only issue is Ct, in the "fall"??? Come on guys, we have an indoor track down here and it never gets below 50 degrees! I sure hope the place up there is heated....

Count me in.

I hope to drag at least a couple more up with me.

And as far as the weather goes in Sept, last year couldn't be beat, and it was the same time of year.

I'm in again..

2wd, 4wd, 2wd truck, and possibly "classics class".

Like Brandon said, the weather was awesome the past two VONATs, I'm wondering if we'll use the outdoor track this year..

RCHR is building an outdoor 1/10th scale track, it's still in its building stages, they have a space about 100' x 65' if I'm not mistaken right behind where the hobby shop is, we'll be able to use the pits inside, and then just go race outside, it's gonna be awesome, they're shooting for an April 17th opening date.

Will the VONATs be run there, that I can't tell you cause I don't know... :mrgreen:

Covell, you're coming down this year??

Possibly, it all depends on my money situation at the time. But I did schedule the time off and did pick up a 10t to run in the truck class. If I make it I hope to bring a couple of people along as well!
