Heacock Happenings: Highlights from Amelia Island 2019
Wednesday May 29, 2019
We’ve always known that vintage racing was exciting, affordable fun – after all, our founder, Ford Heacock started the SVRA back in the late 80’s. What began as a group of friends just wanting to share some track time has evolved into the largest vintage racing association in the country, and their 2015 schedule visits 18 legendary tracks across the country where the greatest race cars in history still head for the starting grid. Some people collect art – we race it!
As the official insurer of the SVRA, our agents have had the privilege of visiting the greatest tracks in the USA, meeting many legendary drivers, getting to see great race cars up close, and witness the ladies and gentlemen who are caretaking these legendary cars and keeping the legends alive. If you haven’t been to an SVRA race, it’s like a back stage pass into auto racing history, and Heacock Classic and the SVRA are bringing a taste of the action right into your living room – watch for “Pursuit of Passion” on all the major networks in just a few weeks as television coverage of the Indy 500 starts to heat up. Here’s the promo clip:
