We race on Sundays

The 2018 SVRA vintage racing season comes to a Sunday finale at the Circuit of The Americas

2y ago

Another year, another lap of America's most iconic road and track courses is in the books. The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association's 2018 season kicked off in February and never looked back as it traveled to famed circuits like Sebring, Road Atlanta, the Brickyard, Watkins Glen and Virginia International. SVRA weekends never disappoint - race fans are treated to a welcoming festival-like atmosphere, incredible racing and a fascinating variety of race machinery.

The Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas has hosted the final weekend of the season for several years now. Fall weather is infamously unpredictable in Central Texas, but the weekend was presented with perfect racing weather by way of moderate temperatures and clear skies. The racing was just as furious, but there was also an air of earned camaraderie among all competitors at this season-ender.

With 2018 over, time to start planning for next year: it begins February 15 at the Roebling Road Raceway in Bloomingdale, GA. A Valentine's Day weekend for the racer-at-heart, maybe?

  • One day I will make it out there. Maybe next year, with the change in F1 calendar it will be in more favorable times.
