The Kastner Cup is awarded to one Triumph Competitor each year.
First awarded at Mosport Canada in 2003 and then each year after at a different track
around the USA. It has been to many famous tracks such as Portland Intl. Raceway,
Watkins Glen, New York, Hallet Oklahoma, Laguna Seca and Atlanta Georgia along
with Topeka, Kansas, Road America in Wisconsin, ButtonWilow California, Eagle Canyon, Texas, and the
last race at Summit Point in Virginia. An effort is made to each year to arrange a
locality that will give Triumph racers in various sections of the country a chance to
compete for the Cup.
The same driver cannot win the cup in successive
years. The award is based on 50% for the competitive results on the
race track during the event (not necessarily the winner), 25% for the
presentation of the car, and 25% for the attitude and interest in
15th Annual Kastner Cup Event Details
Jason Ostrowski and Brian Garcia are organizing the 2017 Kastner Cup Event. The 15th iteration of this great event will be hosted
as the featured event at the 2017 VSCDA Blackhawk Classic at Blackhawk Farms Raceway in Rockton, IL on June 16-18, 2017.
The track is perfect for small bore production racing and the spectating is simply second to none. There is nowhere on the track
that can't be accessed for watching close racing action trackside, plus there is an observation deck where seven corners can be seen
from a perch in the middle of the paddock.
Power hookups and great showers make camping simple if that's how you like to spend your race weekends but with Beloit and Rockford
nearby there are plenty of options outside the track as well. We will have a large section of the paddock reserved for FOT and the
Kastner Cup supporters.
