Vintage Car Rally Association


It the fall of 2005 three old car rally buddies, Vic Thompson and Charlie McKinney, and Rex Gardner started talking about putting on an old car rally. Question was, why on earth would we even think about doing something like this? Well, right about this time Great Race was going through some tough times, and the future looked bleak for the future of the old car rally sport. And, indeed it did come to pass, that they soon went into bankruptcy. The question then became, “If we don’t do something about this, will the sport just die?”

Well, since 1985 we had been competitors in every Great American Race, and numerous regional events, giving us a lot of experience from the racers point of view.  We had discussed the future of the sport with several of our fellow competitors, but had never really gotten down to the nuts and bolts of it. It finally came to the point of “Are we going to do this or not?” Well, after a lengthy discussion with many of our rally friends, it was agreed that the time was right, and in 2006 the Vintage Car Rally Association, Inc was formed with two very distinct purposes…

1. To provide a unique forum for antique, vintage, classic and sports car enthusiasts to compete in controlled speed/ timed / distance rally competition that would test the skills and endurance of both man and machine, classed by the experience levels of the competitors and the age of the vehicles, to assure a level playing field for all.

2. To be a not for profit 501 C 3 organization that will donate all proceeds to charity, namely Autism organizations, schools and chapters in need.
