The Vintage Offroad Nationals is a race, now in its 5th year, that takes place annually up in Connecticut. This year it’s switching locations to an outdoor off-road track in Bethel, CT. The race will be held September 14-16.
Vintage vehicles are considered anything made in the mid-nineties or earlier. In addition to buggy classes, the race includes three off-road truck classes: stadium truck, Heavy Metal 1 and Heavy Metal 2. Heavy Metal 1 (HM1) is for large-tired monster trucks such as the Tamiya Clod Buster and HM2 is for lower trucks such as the Tamiya Blackfoot.
There will be a charity race for Steve Semeraro. Steve was a contributor to RC Truck Stop and recently passed away due to illness related diabetes. For the charity race, drivers will pilot a vehicle outfitted with a Fat Shark RC Vision System and make three laps, racing against the clock. The driver with the fastest overall time will receive a car kit. All proceeds will be used to make into a donation to the American Diabetes Foundation in Steve’s name.
