I think it's going to depend on the organization, and how desperate they are for entries. In the late '70s I did a lot of vintage racing in my 1967 MGB because no one else would take me. The car wasn't up to SCCA standards, but it had a roll bar and the some of the local vintage groups were happy to allow it. I even managed to get in into the 1980 Monterey Historics, the year of the M.G.

Looking over SVRA's regs, it doesn't look like they're too keen on replicas, but it's still possible one ore more of your local organizations will allow it, at least so long as you don't completely run away from the competition.

This might be a stupid question. I'm building a "1959 Locost" (wire wheels and styling cues. THe drive train and many of the other pieces are pre-1974. WHat do you think the chances are that I could get this thing into vintage races?


Reproductions generally are not well received by people who own the real thing. It depends, but most events that I've been to have a few Sevens, and those guys didn't really want to talk about a locost.
