SVRA’s Most Ambitious Schedule Yet

HOME » Magazine » » » SVRA’s Most Ambitious Schedule Yet

Since Tony Parella acquired the major stake in The Trans Am Race Company, LLC in 2017, his SpeedTour concept has grown and grown.  Marrying affordable modern motor sport with his previously acquired SportsCar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA).  One of the largest historic racing clubs in the world, spectators are attracted by the mix of vintage and modern racing.  For 2023 SVRA has announced an ambitious 22-event calendar at venues across the USA. The series returns to some of the most historic tracks in the United States, while revisiting some facilities after multi-decade absences and adding in a first-time venue with World Wide Technology Raceway (WWTR) near St. Louis. 

“I’m really proud of how everything came together for next year,” said Parella, CEO of SVRA.  “Every year, SVRA keeps getting bigger, and this will be our boldest schedule yet.  There are so many great venues and it’s exciting to say that we will have a presence in every region of the United States.  We look forward to returning to some old favourites with Thunderhill and Summit Point, and we’re very excited to introduce SVRA to the motorsports fans in St. Louis when we make our debut at World Wide Technology Raceway in September.  It’s certain to be a great season.”

The calendar includes many of America’s premier circuits, such as Sebring, Road America, Laguna Seca, Indianapolis, Watkins Glen and Circuit of the Americas.  It also includes some new, or not-recently-visited circuits such as Thunderhill Raceway Park in California, Willow Springs and Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia.
