Obviously most of what we do is work on cars for existing fans/drivers of vintage cars, but we also realize the most important step in keeping vintage racing relevant and active is to bring new fans into the fold. In this interest, we've added a new "About Vintage Racing" section to our website, where people new to the concept can learn about how vintage racing works and why we all love it so much. As you all had to start sometime, I'd love some input on the page. Are the current questions and answers informative and helpful? What questions did you have before you started racing? Thanks in advance! While you're there, feel free to enjoy the photos and videos of all the cars in the shop! :)

That is a good start to an 'Introduction to Vintage Racing' page.

I'd been a spectator for many years. I crewed for friends - that is a good way to get close to the action without spending much money. I read everything I could find (books, magazines, internet) and pestered drivers with questions. If I can dig up some of those sources would you want to add those links to your web page?

Good point, Eric. That couldn't hurt as long as there isn't some sort of conflict of interest/copyright issue (I'm not all that well-read on how all that works).

Great idea Mike. I started out as a Tech inspector for SVRA while I was building my Mini. I learned a lot about all of the safety systems in a race car and also got some great ideas of things to do (and not to do) when building my car. VRG Tech can always use help so I would encourage anyone who is seriously considering getting into vintage racing, but either doesn't have a race car yet or is in the process of building one, to help out in Tech. You also meet the nicest people. :D
