The SVRA Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational returns to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with more than 500 of the world’s finest historic racecars competing on the road course and famed 2.5-mile oval, June 11-14, 2015. Longtime SVRA Season Sponsor Heacock Classic Insurance is thrilled to welcome the Bosch Motorsport Group and their support for this one of a kind event.
The Bosch Motorsport car racing history began in the 1900s. Their winning streak started in 1903 at the Gordon Bennett Cup race with a 60-hp Mercedes Benz racecar, equipped with a Bosch low-voltage magneto ignition. That winning tradition continues today, Bosch Motorsport develops and manufactures motorsport electronics and components for complete racing series and individual teams around the world. Even Ford Heacock III’s pre-war car carries Bosch ignition.
“When you walk around the paddock and Gasoline Alley and see historical Bosch products installed on various types of cars, it makes us proud to be involved with SVRA. We look forward to watching various Indy, NASCAR, IMSA and SCCA cars race the oval and road course of this great facility,” said Jim Emerson, Engineering Director, Bosch Motorsports, Robert Bosch LLC. “Sponsoring this SVRA race allows us to continue our support the type of vintage and historic cars in various classes.”
“Bosch brings with them technology and great racing traditions. They are a natural fit with the SVRA and this event,” stated Tony Parella, President and CEO of SVRA. “We are creating great racing traditions with the SVRA Brickyard Invitational. This year, the word is out about this event and we are welcoming new sponsors, racing resources, fans and car enthusiasts alike.”
