The Vintage Auto Racing Association
Welcome to VARA, The Vintage Auto Racing Association. We are the largest Vintage & Historic Auto Racing and Motorsports Organization in the US. We are dedicated to the preservation of Historic and Classic race cars.
"The primary objective of the sport of vintage and historic automobile racing is to promote the preservation of these cars in a racing format that emphasizes safety." Founded in 1973, VARA is the largest vintage racing organization in the country. Race fields are made up of Sports Cars, Sport Racers, Formula Cars from the post WWII period through the sixties, with a few cars from the seventies and later.
Membership in VARA is available to racers and racing enthusiasts. Events are family oriented with many husband/wife teams and second generation racers filling the fields. Membership entitles you to a subscription of the quarterly magazine, The Vintage Voice as well as the VARA Newsletter.
Volunteers are always welcomed and needed by VARA. Our gratitude to the Long Beach MG Club for acting as our grid, and safety corner workers for each event.
VARA currently hosts racing events at:
Auto Club Speedway
Willow Springs Raceway
