I love road racing !
Every season, I start off with the road races at Sebring Florida. Sebring is one of the countries most historic road racing facilities and every February they host the Trans Am Series and the SVRA Sportscar Vintage Racing Association races. Nothing better in February than racing, sunshine and palm trees. This has become one of my favorite events of the season.
Waterford Hills Road Racing competes at a member run 1.5 mile 12 turn road course located in Clarkston, Mich. Waterford Hills was one of the very first race tracks I ever attended, and has always meant a lot to me. It is a beautiful facility with great people and good racing. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy the races; They race once a month during the summers on both Saturday & Sunday mornings/ afternoons. Check out their website with the link below.
Put-In-Bay, an island located in Lake Erie in Ohio, was the site of vintage road races in the 50’s. This tradition was restarted in 2009 as homage to the events of the days past. While the original course was run through the street of the town, it is now located on the airport runways, which was common in road racing in the 50’s. In another throw back to that era, the course is delineated with hay bales. The race cars are divided into several race groups depending on speed.
I attended for the very first time in Sept. 2021 and it was a very cool laid back old school type of event.
