Great idea - I wish I had the $$ and time to get my 964 cup out of storage and race it, maybe time to consider selling it.

Competent runs the Trophy West Series, so makes sense.

Looking forward to the VIR visit.

The announcement was made during Rennsport Reunion VI held at Laguna Seca. Here is a snapshot of the presentation:

Will be tough to get a decent field, I fear, unless modified street cars can run.

This is going to be complicated and I fear expensive the Drivers Cup that Competent MS runs has a $3,000 entry fee.

As the owner of a 964 cup that I was still racing in 2018, I’m mildly intrigued. But there are so few of these cars in the US, is it even possible to get a decent field? I’d bet there re <20 964 euro cups and <20 993 cups in the US.

Given current values, it is not a series for the faint of heart.
Although I see major money collector cars run like they are stolen in HSR.

The screen shot of the Facebook page in the first post mentions it will include other Porsche air-cooled machines(?). And their Instagram page shows a photo of what looks like a Singer(?).

I'd love to run my RSR in such a series, but I'm not going to finance it myself.

I can run COTA with PCA for $1k per weekend, if their entry fee is $3K for the same ... I'll likely pass.

Look forward to seeing what they have to offer,

I'd do VIR but would not be able to do any of the West Coast races....Would be fun and good exercise for my old timer ! She has not really been raced in over 10 years now.
