Topic: The Dead Marque Society Inaugural Trophy Stroll (Inde 2020)
I've discussed this with my team and inside my head since Buttonwillow.
The Dead Marque Society is for racecars that have some significant (measured in decades) gap between race day and the last time the marque was sold in the US*. We (that's a royal "we") are looking for other weirdos to bring their weirdo cars to Inde this year.
We are bringing the (unsold) Borgward out again... and we want some notionally slow things to race with.
Multiple decades since sold in the US (I'll race against a Renault Encore but not a Saturn)
Stock-ish engine (no swaps outside the marque)
The O-Reilly warehouse in Tucson doesn't stock head gaskets for the base car or the engine of choice (you can tell this if you can't order it for pick up in store).
Class winners become ineligible.
Fees: None. Donations to the charity at the track (if there is one) will add one to the lap count per $10 donated (e.g. want a bonus lap, donate to the charity (Yes, this means you can basically buy the trophy, but so can the next gal. Get a receipt.).
Results: Accolades (and maybe a trophy if I can get my shit together and make one).
*things that have been revived since as niche marques, etc. don't count (e.g. Classic Minis are eligible, new Minis aren't).
