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 the 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 1950’s 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
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. The Saturday evening display (no parade) features luxury sports cars rarely seen otherwise.
