Overview
WeatherTech International Challenge with Brian Redman

A mid-summer tradition, the WeatherTech® International Challenge with Brian Redman at Road America, taking place July 11-14, 2024, 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 iconic Formula Ford racecar will take center stage as the featured marque for the highly anticipated 2024 WeatherTech International Challenge with Brian Redman at Road America. This momentous occasion will commemorate the 55th Anniversary of the Formula Ford racer’s illustrious history, paying homage to the legendary machines that have graced the track over the years. Formula Ford has long been revered as a breeding ground for aspiring racing drivers, nurturing talent and showcasing exhilarating competition. The 2024 event promises to be a fitting tribute to the remarkable legacy of these open-wheel racecars, highlighting their enduring impact on motorsport.

An additional feature that is sure to thrill participants and attendees is the Ragtime Racers exhibition. Dressed in period coveralls, goggles, and leather helmets, they bring the spirit of early racing to life while ensuring everyone’s safety. The Ragtime Racers offer an immersive journey into history. Their pits feature a mesmerizing 100-foot diorama, replicating a race shop from over a century ago, complete with authentic tools, a forge, vintage equipment, and period-specific signage. 

 The Ragtime Racers are the only group where race organizers permit a “rider” in race cars on track, creating a once-in-a-lifetime experience for hundreds of guests, VIPs, and news media. At Road America, be prepared to step back in time and witness the Ragtime Racers’ living tribute to motorsports heritage. It’s not just racing; it’s a captivating journey through history at America’s National park of Speed.

The WeatherTech International Challenge is a premier vintage gathering featuring everything from the sights and sounds of the past 100 years of racing to a special Concours d’Elegance on Friday and Saturday along the streets of Elkhart Lake. The 2024 event is a can’t miss spectacle for any racing enthusiast. Come out to Road America to witness this impressive racing legacy.
