SVRA competitors and fans are now
able to carry their favorite racing series
in their pocket following the release of
the new SVRA mobile phone app.
The app, which is available for both
iPhone and Android platforms, is a free
download, and SVRA President and CEO
Tony Parella believes that it will make it
easier for spectators and members to
stay up to date than ever before.
“This is our latest effort to be
responsive to our members and fans,”
he said. “The interest in vintage racing
is growing, and we started hearing from
fans months ago that they needed this
kind of access, especially at our tracks
during events to help them learn about
our sport and follow the action.”
One of the app’s key features will be
the delivery of information and race
results as they happen during an event.
“This is another example of SVRA
leadership within vintage racing,” said
Lyn St. James, 1992 Indianapolis 500
Rookie of the Year. “The SVRA
continues to deliver innovative ideas by
bringing established technologies to the
vintage motorsports space. These event
weekends have hundreds of cars, so
fans and competitors alike want access
to information, especially about results.”
The app was scheduled for release
to coincide with the Trans Am 50th
anniversary event at Sebring on March
4-6. A massive entry of older and more
recent machinery was expected, along
with appearances by Grand Marshal
Bob Tullius, George Follmer, Lyn St.
James, Willy T Ribbs, David Hobbs, Tom
Yeager, Jack Baldwin and Ron Fellows.

Previous generations of Trans Am (MAIN) and more recent
machinery (BOTTOM) share DNA and a sense of spectacle. The
SVRA brought old and new together to celebrate the category’s
50th anniversary at Sebring, March 4-6. Trans Am alumni, such
as George Follmer (BELOW) were also in attendance.
Following the world of vintage racing just became easier than ever.
