G Dausch - Automotive Fine Art - Gary doesn’t describe his work as a business. (“It’s an active hobby that is intense and maybe a little bit out of control,” he says.) But word-of-mouth has sparked a modest following for his paintings. Each one requires between 150 and 200 hours to complete, and all include intricate details familiar, perhaps, only to those who have built, designed, raced or maintained the cars themselves. “That’s part of the magic, I think, in what I’m doing,” says Gary. “I’ve actually touched these parts, and I want them to look real. It’s kind of like I am building the car” as he paints, he says. Today, his work hangs in the homes and offices of some of the racing industry’s most well known individuals, including drivers and team owners. Limited- edition prints (about 50 of each painting) make his art more affordable for a wider audience. - info@gdausch.com - (317) 225-3590

Berkeley

Berkeley Car Club - The Berkeley Enthusiast Club was founded in 1964 and was started up as the “international Berkeley Enthusiasts Club” but the name was changed in 1967 to the Berkeley Enthusiasts Club (BEC). This was because the RAC Competitions Committee would not give their official recognition of the club with the International title because the club was only a one-car make club, so the word “International” was removed. From the very beginning, the club was run with the manifesto of keeping Berkeleys running on the road. Initially this took the form of keeping owners in touch with each other, keeping a source of spares, technical literature and even helping to develop and update the various models.

Drivers are welcome to travel from one region to another and participate with their own cars, or contact the Region owner to arrange an “arrive and drive” rental. Most regions have resources for cars to rent for the program. With a focus on safety, coaching, learning and fun, HOD drivers are able to experience their cars at a higher level on a track than would be safe or prudent on the public highways. As a result, drivers gain a new appreciation of their car – its capabilities, strengths and weaknesses; as well as their own skills as a driver and the need to develop those skills.

Vintage Drivers Club of America (VDCA) - The Vintage Drivers Club of America is an organization started by drivers and run by drivers for drivers. While there are as many ideas about what vintage racing is as there are types of cars and drivers, what started out as a movement to preserve old racing cars and to re-create the competitions of the past has developed into a continuing evolution of race cars and, in some vintage racing organizations, virtually a state-of-the-art racecar under an older style body. To us of VDCA, vintage racing is all about cars competing in the form they would have been presented in the era that they were raced. To that end we are using a standard of "period prepared" and will use the SCCA GCR's through 1972 as the basis for our car prep regulations. Cars that are not period prepared will be accepted to race at our events on a case-by-case basis. As a general rule of thumb, most cars that race with either SVRA, VSCCA, or VSCDA will be accepted at VDCA events. See our Car Eligibility page for more specific information on this topic.

They will be able to tell you the positives and negatives of a particular car. - IL: Blackhawk Farms MI: GingerMan Raceway, Grattan Raceway WI: Road America - (616) 916-2650
