Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival

Saturday, May 30 - Sunday, May 31, 2015
Historic Car Races

The Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival is another first event on the SVRA’s West Coast schedule in 2015. 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 44 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.

Featuring sports cars and popular marques like Maserati, Ferrari, Porsche and Lotus, as well as a full array of formula cars, Trans-Am and production sports cars roaring around the 12-turn, 2.52-mile road course. Each ticket doubles as a pit pass, granting you an up-close look at these historic racecars and a chance to chat with their owners.
