Recently, Dave Nicholas, cousin of Applied Concepts, Inc.’s President, Alex Nicholas, raced to victory in his 1960 Model-A MG during the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association’s (SVRA) 2015 Lake Forest Sportscar Spring Vintage Festival. The event was held May 14-17 in Elkhart Lake, WI.
Applied Concepts is a proud sponsor of the #76 racecar that broke an axle and blew a valve cover gasket causing a huge oil leak before landing in the competition’s Winner’s Circle.
The SVRA is the largest and one of the oldest Vintage racing organizations in the United States. Originally called the Southeast Vintage Racing Association, the organization was founded in 1981 by Ford Heacock III following the success of the Kendall Vintage Grand Prix held as part of the annual
12 Hours of Sebring. With an initial membership of approximately 25 drivers and supporters, the organization has become the premier vintage racing organization in the United States with over 2,500 licensed competitors.
