  • Kastner Cup 2020

    The Kastner Cup weekend featuring TRiumph race cars will be held June 26-28 at Mid Ohio. In addition to Kas Kastner and MANY TRiumph race cars from North America, there is a container load of cars coming from England. Preliminary numbers indicate as many as 60 (!!!) or more TRiumph race cars will be in attendance. There is lodging available all around Mid Ohio, but this is going to be a BIG event, so if you are remotely interested in attending (and you should be), find a room and get it booked sooner rather than later. See you there.

    There's a good article in the recent edition of "Moss Motoring" about Kas Kastner, Peter Brock, Bob Tullius, Jim Dittemore and THE TR250K.

      The plans for the 2020 Kastner Cup vintage race weekend are coming together, and this could be the largest turnout of vintage race TRiumphs ever assembled in the US. If you are a TR racing fan, you need to be at Mid Ohio in June. I'm extra stoked because as of today, the newest owner of my former race car plans to be there. Hope to see some 6-Pack friends there.

        Elwood, is one of the days the actual kasnter cup race? Or is the "Kastner cup" spread out over the weekend? I can't find a schedule of the actual races online.

            Thanks to Carmine74 for posting the tentative schedule. The Kastner Cup race is Sunday, right before the lunch break. The Kastner Cup race group will be practicing and qualifying all weekend, as per the schedule. Also, some of the Kastne Cup cars will also run the regular SVRA race groups, so there will be plenty of opportunities to see TRiumphs on TRack.

                  Elwood, the governor of Ohio will have a press conference today at 2 PM about how restaurants, beauty salons etc can re-open. Let's hope he throws in there the Kastner Kup too.

                    Hope you're right, Skootch. Right now they're telling us that anyone who gets in as crew, as well as participants and worker, should be prepared to wear a mask.

                        Yes you can, as long as you have a driver or drivers who can list you and pay for you as overcrew.

                          Elwood,

                          Have you heard anything more about my great state of Ohio allowing spectators in?

                          I see that Mid Ohio is selling tickets.

                            I checked Mid-Ohio,s and the svra website and didnt find any info about covid restrictions.Like skootch13 said, tickets are being sold. I just booked my room, purchased my tickets and registered for the british car showdown/car corral. hope it all works out. So who else is going? Looks like its going to be a cool event.

                              This is kind of interesting, last I heard was that the track has decided to allow spectators even though SVRA declared it a no spectator event. Since the track is selling tickets, those of you who go should have no problem getting in. There are a lot less TR racers planning to attend than when this thing was first announced, but it still should be a good show. Also, Kas has chosen not to attend. Those of you who go, have a great time and stay safe and healthy.
