Sonoma Historics Celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Can-Am and Trans-Am Series
The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) returns to wine country for the Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival, June 3-5, a Gold Medallion event. Racers and fans will enjoy this invitational event, which salutes race cars prepared to the rules of the era in which they were originally raced.
A celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Can-Am and Trans-Am Series will offer a trip down memory lane through one of the most exciting eras in America's racing heritage. This event offers a wide variety of pre- and post-race activities, and Sonoma Raceway's proximity to downtown Sonoma and wine regions makes it a popular destination for competitors and race fans alike.
More than 375 of the world's finest racing machines will take to the 12-turn road course, some of which date as far back as Pre-WWI. It's sure to be an incredible collection of race cars, including Bugatti, Lotus, Corvette, Ferrari, Jaguar, and Alfa Romeo, some of which have never tested the twists and turns of our track.
On Saturday night, a select group of historic race cars depart the raceway under a full CHP escort and head to picturesque downtown Sonoma. After a ceremonial lap around the Town Square, the cars will into the Plaza for public viewing. Saturday's car show, benefitting the Sonoma chapter of Speedway Children's Charities, is another perfect opportunity for fans to enjoy the street and performance cars from local car clubs, as well as show off their own rides. These activities and many more, round out a jam-packed weekend of racing.
