ELKHART LAKE, Wis., – May 10, 2023 – The excitement is palpable as Road America gears up to welcome back the SVRA Spring Vintage Festival Weekend, May 19-21, an event that has become a cherished tradition in the heart of vintage racing enthusiasts. Road America has been hosting some of the most iconic events in motorsports history since 1955 and has become a pilgrimage site for racing fans worldwide.
For three days, Road America will come alive with the sights and sounds of vintage racing. The SVRA Spring Vintage Festival Weekend is an opportunity for spectators to immerse themselves in the rich history of motorsports, witness the beauty of classic cars, and enjoy all the sights, sounds, and on-track action from nearly every era of racing’s glorious past. The weekend will also be bolstered with the SVRA SpeedTour, a series of races and events from the Formula 4 United States Championship (F4 U.S.), Formula Regional Americas Championship (FR Americas) series, and the Mazda Miata Heritage Cup Series.
One of the festival’s highlights is the Hagerty Cars & Caffeine showcase, where vintage car owners can display their prized possessions and engage in friendly conversations with other enthusiasts. The showcase will be held on Saturday morning, and guests can enjoy a cup of coffee while admiring the cars.
Apart from the races, there will be plenty of activities to keep guests entertained. The Paddock Shop will offer a wide range of merchandise, and Road America’s world-renowned concession stands will serve up delectable food and drinks. Guests can also take a walk around the beautiful Road America grounds and explore the many improvements, such as the new viewing trail that circumnavigates turns nine and ten, affectionately known as ‘The Carousel,’ and witness awe-inspiring feats of speed and skill as competitors attempt new lap records on the completely repaved 4.048-mile racing surface.
