18th Annual Kastner Cup Gallery (2020)

Experience the 2020 Kastner Cup race at Mid Ohio from the driver's seat. Cameras in sixteen of thirty-two cars ensure the best angles on all the action.

The Kastner Cup is vintage racing at it's finest. Every year Triumph racers from across the U.S. gather to celebrate the golden age of sports car racing. Kas Kastner was instrumental to Triumph's racing success in the '60s, and most of these cars are from that era.

The last time an All-Triumph race was run at Mid Ohio was in 2002, the year the idea of the Kastner Cup was conceived. One of the great things about this event, is that cars which would ordinarily be in separate classes, get to race together. Finishing on or near the podium is only part of winning the cup. Drivers must also pay special attention to the presentation and preparation of their cars.

Like many similar events in 2020, the lock-down situation affected what was planned to be the largest ever Triumph field of racers at sixty plus entries, including five from the UK. Nonetheless, the Kastner Cup still achieved a more typical thirty-two entries from all over the United States.

Sixteen cars provided on-board video for this unique look at vintage racing from the driver's seat. Every piece of action is shown in real-time, so that we can experience the close fought racing and hard-won positions precisely as it happened.
