The Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival is another first event on the SVRA’s West Coast schedule in 2017. This invitational event launches the General Racing/Gold Medallion program that salutes and rewards cars that are prepared as they were raced in the original era.
This invitational event will take place on the challenging 12-turn road course which opened in 1968, and features over 16 stories of elevation change with lots of fast sweeping turns. Sonoma Raceway has hosted every major amateur and professional racing series during its 45 year history. The track’s proximity to California’s famous Sonoma and Napa wine regions also makes it a popular venue with both competitors and race fans and offers a wide variety of pre and post-race activities, including the race car drive and show at the downtown Sonoma Square.
