CSRG Hosts the David Love Memorial Races April 1st to 3rd.
Who & What: The Classic Sports Racing Group (CSRG) is an historic & vintage car racing organization founded by David Love in 1968. Love wanted to find a way to showcase old race cars whose competition days were over. Loved passed way from Parkinson's Disease in 2013, but his spirit lives on in this event.
The Basics: There will be approximately 200 Historic & Vintage race cars, spanning Formula 1, prototype & production sports cars principally from the '50s, '60s & '70s, as well as some gems from the 30s. Names like Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Maserati, Porsche, MG, Corvette fill the paddock. Can-Am, F1, Trans-Am & more…they're all at the David Love. This year's featured marque is Triumph, the iconic, British-made, quintessential sports car.
The cars are divided into eight or nine race groups with qualifying & a race on Saturday & a warm up & a race on Sunday for each group.
April 1-3; Racing is slated from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Friday afternoon is an open practice.
Where: Sonoma Raceway, 29355 Arnold Dr
