SOUTHLAKE, Texas – The Sportscar Vintage Racing Ass’n has affirmed the June dates at both Road America and the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
The agreement with Road America is a new date after the postponement of the original May 15-17 Vintage Festival. Fathers’ Day weekend, June 18–21, became available with the postponement of the Brickyard Invitational at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and changes to the Indy car date originally planned at Road America at that time. Mid-Ohio will take place on its previously announced date, June 25–28.
SVRA will share the Road America race weekend with Blue Marble Radical Cup’s unique form of sports car racing. The SpeedTour Festival formula will return at Mid-Ohio, featuring SVRA and Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli.
“Road America and Mid-Ohio are important venues for our sport and as the economy opens, we are able to move forward with responsible precautions,” said Tony Parella, SVRA President and CEO and majority owner of the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli. “Our goal is to make SVRA and SpeedTour racing safer than going to the grocery store.”
“Vintage racing is important to Road America and we are delighted to keep SVRA on our schedule this season,” said Road America President and General Manager, Michael Kertscher. “I am proud that everyone in motorsports is pitching in to make the best of a situation we absolutely did not want and could not have planned for. This was a perfect opportunity to get SVRA back and give all our fans another reason to take in Father’s Day at America’s National Park of Speed. Fans will also have the opportunity to watch the Blue Marble Radical Cup during the SVRA Vintage Weekend.”
