A mid-summer tradition, the WeatherTech® International Challenge with Brian Redman at Road America, taking place July 13-16, 2023, is one of the largest vintage racing events in the United States. The WeatherTech® International Challenge road race features over 400 vintage and historic racecars competing across several days. The highlight of the 2023 event at Road America is the Kastner Cup featuring Triumph sports cars.
The WeatherTech International Challenge is a premier vintage gathering featuring everything from a special Concours d’Elegance on Friday and Saturday along the streets of Elkhart Lake, plus featured Triumph sports car racing. The 2023 event is a can’t miss spectacle for any racing enthusiast. Come out to Road America to witness this impressive racing legacy.
Kastner Cup for Triumph Sports Cars
Triumphs have raced at Road America’s fabled four-mile 14-turn circuit since the late ’50s. The Kastner Cup for Triumph sports cars serving as the featured mark for 2023 is a fitting tribute for the event as The Kastner Cup was named in recognition of the career accomplishments and legacy of R.W. “Kas” Kastner who passed away on April 11, 2021, at the age of 92. Kas Kastner was one of the most influential individuals responsible for the racing success of Triumph sports cars from the late 1950s through 1970 and beyond.
The Kastner Cup race is held at a different track each year. The Kastner Cup has become a major event on the vintage racing calendar for British car fans who travel across the country to experience this race. The Kastner Cup is awarded to one competitor based on the following criteria:
- 50% for the competitive results on the racetrack during the event (not necessarily the winner)
- 25% for the presentation of the car
- 25% for the attitude and interest in Vintage racing
Historic Trans Am
Road America is also proud to feature the Historic Trans Am Series during the WeatherTech International Challenge with Brian Redman. This series brings together drivers to race classic and vintage Trans Am cars on America’s favorite road courses. Racers will get the opportunity to experience the thrill of vintage racing while enjoying the beautiful scenery of Road America. Fans will get the chance to experience some of the most iconic cars from the world of Trans Am racing, as well as witness some of the best racing action the series has to offer. This is sure to be an event that both avid race fans and casual spectators alike won’t want to miss.
Ferrari Feature Corral
Additionally, there will be a special Ferrari Feature Corral at the 2023 WeatherTech International Challenge with Brian Redman. Having this special Ferrari feature is a fitting tribute as Ferraris have raced at the fabled four-mile 14-turn circuit since the track’s inception, and many notable Ferraris with Road America lineage will be on display. 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.
In addition to the WeatherTech International Challenge races, make time to attend the Road America Concours d’ Elegance in downtown Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, on Friday, July 14, and Saturday, July 15, from 6-8 p.m. The Friday evening parade and display will feature vintage racecars participating in the WeatherTech International Challenge weekend races.
