Amelia Island Vintage Gran Prix
SVRA's Amelia Island Vintage Gran Prix race weekend returns to Fernandina Beach Airport March 16-19, just days after the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. With its emphasis on race cars and racing history, the Amelia Island Concours has gained a huge following among racers, racing legends, and race car owners, and the SVRA Vintage Gran Prix adds another weekend of excitement and prestige - on the track! The Amelia Island Vintage Gran Prix pays homage to the 1960s sports car races which took place at the Fernandina Beach Airport. Plans have been finalized for a 2 plus-mile airport road course. Invited groups of race cars for this event include Pre-War cars, sports cars and road racing specials up to 1980. Gold medallion cars are invited, and will enjoy separate podiums along with a unique racing experience. Three dozen vintage motorcycles will take to the track during the weekend for spirited vintage bike racing action. For complete schedule and ticket information visit www.svra.com.
