Heacock Happenings - Spring 2019

Wed Oct 8
In its first year in 2013, the SVRA U.S. Vintage Racing National Championship immediately became the most popular Vintage Racing event in this country. More than 520 competitors from throughout the United States, Canada and seven other countries competed for National Championships in 13 different race groups. The Austin Texas event featured close competition in all groups and showcased over 100 years of historically significant automobiles. 2014’s event on October 8 – 12 promises to be even bigger and better. Saturday night’s Texas style barbecue and concert will be back along with three full days of exciting National Championship Vintage Racing. Racing takes place on the 20-turn F-1 designed 3.4 mile Grand Prix circuit, one of the top racing venues in the world. The inaugural 2013 event drew an exceptional field, including Brian Blaione’s 1911 National Indy that actually competed in the very first Indy 500 race. Other cars of interest included Paddins Dowling’s 1939 Maserati 4CL, two pre-war Talbot-Lago T26 Grand Prix cars, Jim Stranberg’s 1925 Bugatti Type 35, two Morgan 3-wheelers and Tom Malloy’s lovely 1935 Miller-Ford Indy car. Reports from behind the wheel universally called the course technical, challenging, and thrilling, so the expectations are high for a massive field shooting for another chance at a National Championship. Heacock Classic will once again be on hand to service our clients, meet some new ones, and even lend a hand where needed. For more information, visit www.svra.com.
