SVRA Vintage Festival Weekend

SVRA Vintage Festival Weekend

May 19-21, 2023

Overview

Racing’s glorious past comes to life May 19-21, 2023, as the SVRA Vintage Festival Weekend returns to Road America. The 2023 season kick-off event will showcase all the sights and sounds from motorsport’s pioneering age to modern era racecars.

The event features a packed schedule. Races will feature cars spamming several decades — many of the entries having previously competed at Le Mans and the Indy 500.

SVRA (Sportscar Vintage Racing Association) events offer tightly regulated, wheel-to-wheel racing, with a lineup that includes race groups for all SVRA classes. Classes include Formula 5000, Formula Ford, sports racing, and production sports cars from marques such as Lotus, Alfa Romeo, Jaguar, Porsche and Corvette from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s.
