Photos: Day One at SVRA’s Vintage Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio

Lexington, OH — A large paddock of vintage racers were eager to get on track yesterday to kick off SVRA’s Vintage Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio. A late announcement last week allows spectators for the Speedtour event weekend that features Trans Am and F4 U.S. and FR Americas racing as well. See the full list of entries here and a check out the race schedule here. VM’s ace photographer Bill Stoler is on-site this weekend to provide some wonderful imagery for all to enjoy.

The featured marque for this weekend’s race is Triumph and Chuck Gee’s 1970 Triumph Vitesse certainly fits the bill. Photo: Bill Stoler
