H-Mod Racing Cars Featured May 7-8 VSCCA Spring Sprints Lime Rock Park

Posted Dec-28-20 at 8:24 PM By Dan Davis

Cars expected include a variety of vintage Modified Class sports racing cars powered by 750cc engines from Fiat, Crosley, Panhard, SAAB, and Coventry Climax engines.  H-Modified was a SCCA racing class popular in the 1950s through the early 1960s.  It attracted creative “factory” and home built road racing cars powered by 750cc displacement engines.

The early 1950s 750cc cars included familiar small Italian race car makers: OSCA, Bandini, Stanguellini, Siata, Abarth. Later British Lotus and Cooper 750cc Coventry Climax engined cars were produced. French makers created Panhard and Renault powered cars.  In the U.S. homebuilt cars, usually powered by a Crosley engine, included: Miller-Crosley, Puckett MPX, Tanner, Fibersport, Jaybird, Jabro, ERM, PBX and many more.  In 1962, the displacement was increased to 850cc and later in ’67 the class rules switched to DSR.

The VSCCA H-Mod Group Chairman is Richard Campbell.  Contact 917-538-6550 (cell).  Email at [email protected]
