Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) today announced a 17-race schedule for 2022. The 2022 season marks the tenth anniversary of SVRA’s acquisition by Parella Motorsports Holdings, Inc. SVRA’s SpeedTour weekends include vintage racing, contemporary sports cars, and other features to present the most diverse and exciting array of racecar design and engine sounds in the world. The concept continues to generate growth in sponsorship and membership.
The SVRA is one of the premier vintage racing organizations in the United States. Founded in 1978, SVRA has grown steadily with hundreds of new active members and its database of thousands of cars. There are five dates currently left in the 2021 SVRA SpeedTour season including events at Watkins Glen and Virginia International Raceway. Those dates can be found on the SVRA events page.
It’s hard to believe we are approaching the tenth anniversary of the Parella Motorsports Holdings acquisition of SVRA. That first season, we were simply a regional club with a five-race schedule at three venues. Since then, with the help of our team, we have built a national, coast-to-coast platform that has delivered tremendous growth in sponsors, members, and fans. Along the way, we have developed outstanding date equity with many of our venues.Tony Parella – SVRA CEO
Among the heralded tracks that have built date equity with SVRA are Watkins Glen International, Road America, Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, Virginia International Raceway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Sebring Raceway, Auto Club Speedway, WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, Portland International Raceway, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, and Sonoma Raceway. Circuit of The Americas, home to Formula One’s United States Grand Prix, has presented SVRA’s U.S Vintage National Championships since 2013. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway returns to the schedule and back to Father’s Day weekend, as usual.
