About the Kastner Cup
The Kastner Cup race honors the legendary R.W. “Kas” Kastner, a championship winning driver and team manager who led the U.S. Triumph racing program to numerous victories through the 1960’s and 1970’s. Kas will select the racer to receive this coveted award and present the cup. The 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 Vintage racing.
