Purpose, Mission, Benefits, & Membership Requirements
The Purpose of
the Vintage Motorsports Council (VMC)
Motorsports Council is organized exclusively for educational and nonprofit
purposes. The purpose of the VMC is
to provide a coordinating body for vintage motor sports.
It is the intent of the VMC to provide its Members with a forum to
address matters impacting the continued growth and health of vintage motor
sports. The VMC is an
advisory and coordinating body which may establish recommended rules and
regulations for the benefit of its Members. VMC shall be operated
exclusively for such purposes; no part of its activities shall be carrying on
propaganda, or otherwise attempting to influence legislation; and it shall not
participate in, or intervene in (including publishing or distributing of
statements), any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any
candidate for public office.
The primary objective of the sport of
vintage and historic
automobile racing and the VMC is to promote the preservation of these
great old cars in a racing
format which emphasizes the fun factor, camaraderie, driver safety and etiquette. The sport is intended to
provide a format for friendly wheel-to-wheel competition with vehicles
faithfully prepared to their era.
All racing is dangerous and only the proper attitude of the
driver and the careful preparation of the cars will diminish the danger and will
enhance our appreciation of this sport.
