Vintage Car Racing Returns to Sonoma Raceway This Weekend
The Classic Sports Racing Group (CSRG) kicks off its 46th season at Sonoma Raceway this weekend, April 6-7.
Vintage car racing will take center stage in Sonoma with 150 to 200 vintage race cars set to grace the road course over the weekend. Fans can expect to see vintage Formula 1, prototype sports cars and production cars from the 1950’s, 60s and 70s, as well as select sports racing cars from the 1930s. The eight race groups will consist of many well-known marques including Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Porsche, Corvette and Jaguar.
In addition, Indianapolis 500 Rookie of the Year winner, Lyn St. James, and Formula Atlantic Champion, Dan Marvin, will be among the contestants. The event will feature open practice on Friday, with vintage racing slated for the 12-turn, 2.52-mile road course on Saturday and Sunday. The Wine Country Car Club will also have 25 cars on display throughout the weekend.
Gates open at 8 a.m. each day. Tickets can be purchased at the gate and admission is $25 per day or $40 for a weekend pass. Children 12 and under, military members, veterans, high school and college students will be admitted FREE with appropriate identification. A portion of proceeds from the event weekend will benefit the Sonoma Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities, the charitable arm of Sonoma Raceway.
CSRG returns to Sonoma Raceway, Oct. 5-6, for the CSRG Charity Challenge. CSRG has contributed more than $500,000 to Sonoma County youth organizations through Speedway Children’s Charities since 2002.
