The Kastner Cup is listed as the featured marque for 2023 in a tribute befitting the event’s rich heritage. Renowned for its association with Triumph sports cars, this historic racing cup honors the incomparable legacy of the late R.W. “Kas” Kastner, who was instrumental in Triumph’s racing success from the late 1950s to the 1970s and beyond. Kastner’s profound influence lives on through his legendary Competition Preparation Manuals, considered essential reading for Triumph competitors to this day.
The Kastner Cup has emerged as a highlight on the vintage racing calendar for British car aficionados. Each year, the race ventures to a different track, providing Triumph racers from across the country an opportunity to vie for the coveted Cup. This year, the WeatherTech International Challenge with Brian Redman at Road America is the prestigious battleground where race-prepared Triumph-powered cars compete for glory.
What sets the Kastner Cup apart is its unique judging criteria, encapsulating the true spirit of vintage racing. The Cup is awarded based on a combination of factors: 50% for competitive results on the racetrack, acknowledging outstanding performance rather than merely the race winner; 25% for the presentation of the car, celebrating meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail; and 25% for the attitude and interest in Vintage racing, recognizing the passion and dedication of the participants.
To enhance the racing spectacle, the 2023 event will feature a special racecar concours on Friday, showcasing an extraordinary collection of cars along the charming streets of Elkhart Lake. Additionally, a sports car concours will occur on Saturday in Elkhart Lake as a Triumph sports car racer reunion promises to bring together a community of enthusiasts, igniting a sense of camaraderie and nostalgia.
Additionally, there will be a special Vintage Ferrari Exhibition at the WeatherTech International Challenge, where many notable Ferraris with Road America lineages will be displayed. Road America is expecting a bevy of Ferraris from nearly every era of racing. Fans can watch these impressive machines take a special all-Ferrari parade lap around the track.
