There’s a distinctly Southern flavor to
the end of the 2015 Sportscar Vintage
Racing Association season. In October,
the wonderfully varied machinery that
comprises any given SVRA entry will
compete at the challenging and intricate
NOLA Motorsports Park in Avondale, La.,
before heading 500 miles west to
Texas and the majestic sweeps of
Austin’s Circuit of The Americas for the
season finale in November.
SVRA’s inaugural Mardi Gras at
NOLA Motorsports Park, Oct. 9-11 will
cars and sports racers powered by
Chevy, Ford, Cosworth, and more, will
be divided into eight vintage racing
groups. The on-track sessions will
include practice, qualifying and two
sprint races for each of SVRA’s race
groups, as well as two endurance races.
As a ground-shaking bonus, the
contemporary SCCA Pro Racing-sanctioned Trans Am Series will also
take to the track during the three-day
event for practice, qualifying and a
100-mile feature race on Sunday.
In addition to on-track racing action,
fans and spectators will have a chance
to autocross the newest additions to
the Jaguar lineup as part of the Jaguar
This action packed weekend at
NOLA Motorsport Park’s world class,
16-turn, 2.75-mile track offers
something for everyone, racers and
fans alike. Plus, don’t miss the fun at
the on-site event center’s Saturday
night party, featuring great New
Orleans music, followed by a
spectacular fireworks display.
It will take a lot to match that
combo of festival atmosphere and
great on-track action, but the U.S.
Vintage Racing National Championship
at COTA will surely prove up to the task
in ensuring the Sportscar Vintage
Racing Association’s title battles are as
climactic as last year.
This event has become one of the
most popular vintage and historic
racing events in America. In 2015,
more than 400 competitors from
around the world will compete for a
National Championship in 11 different
race groups, with the winners taking
home the coveted Bell Racing National
Champions helmet. And the Trans Am
Series will again be a featured guest,
firing up for the 11th and penultimate
round in its nationwide series.
There’s also a Lone Star-sized car
show scheduled for Saturday
afternoon, a great party, a Texas-style
BBQ dinner, a fireworks display like no
other, and The Marshall Tucker Band in
concert in the paddock. They’re all part
of SVRA’s classy close-out to 2015.

of The Americas in November.
From the motorsport Mardi Gras in New Orleans to the Vintage Racing
National Championship at COTA, the SVRA ends 2015 with a bang.

“Some people collect art, we
race it.” SVRA’s slogan is apt,
no question. But at Pocono
Raceway, some may argue
the show was stolen by the
demonstration laps on the
2.5-mile tri-oval by a cluster
of historic Indy cars… R u s
“SvRA’s inaugural Mardi Gras
at NOLA Motorsports park
will showcase vintage and

racing at its best, with vintage race

Porsche, Shelby, Alfa Romeo and MG,
