Alton, VA -- October 8th, 2003 - The final round of the North America SRCC for Pre '87 Sports 2000 cars promises to be a "barn-burner" at the beautiful Virginia International Raceway this weekend.

Hosted by the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association, 14 cars, the strongest entry of the 10-round series held from Sebring, Florida to Mosport, Canada shows the growing interest in this terrific series for historic Sports 2000 cars built by March, Chevron, Lola, Tiga, Royale and the American Swift.

The two chief protagonists, Paul Tavilla, of Beech Mountain, NC, in his Krause & England, Inc. prepared Swift DB-2 will be battling down to the wire with Roy Sokolowski, of North Ferrisburg, VT, driving his Pole Position Racing Chevron B63. These two can only count their best five results and both have won two races each. Tavilla may have the edge starting the series in the first round at Sebring, Florida in March of this year.

Scott Livingston, of St. Louis, MI, the defending series champion, will be racing his Motor Racing Services March 83S and expects a strong challenge for the overall win from local "hot shoe" Peter Krause, racing his Krause & England, Inc. Tiga SC-80.

The North America SRCC Series Championship Race starts at noon on Sunday at Virginia International Raceway. More info at www.virclub.com and www.svra.com
