considering how to get started in vintage racing, you my wish to purchase
a copy of The Ace Factor, an excellent publication commissioned
by the VMC and produced by E.
Paul Dickinson. Covering the essentials of racing motor
cars it is used as a text book for a number of VMC organizations as part
of their racing school curriculum. And it's also a valuable text for
experienced drivers to help realize what may have become some bad habits
or forgotten race craft tools.
The Ace Factor is in its second printing
and available for $14.95, postage included. Click here for
form. (VMC Member Organizations wishing to buy books in
bulk quantities should contact Treasurer@the-VMC.com
for such orders.)
Magazines for Vintage Racers
There are a number of periodicals
which are of interest to the vintage racing community. In addition
to covering the sport, each always has a strong offering of classified
ads for race cars.
the entire existence of the VMC, Heacock Insurance
has provided a group
insurance policy which many VMC organizations use to insure their racing
events. Further, Heacock provides many VMC organizations with their
General Liability policies and their Directors & Officers insurance.
In addition to provide these insurance policies/services to VMC, Heacock
provides individuals with collector car, race car, trailer, etc. stated
value insurance. These insurance services to individuals can be found on
