The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association has announced that it will offer season-long National Championships for both the short sprint races and longer endurance contests on its schedule of events. Previously, SVRA’s season-long points championships were centered in the eastern USA.
Points awarded for finishing positions will be the same for both sprint and endurance contests, ranging from 16 for winning to one point for 10th place, with 13 sprint races and 10 endurance contests included in the National Championship program.
Eligibility for these season championships is open only to SVRA members who contest at least three of the designated races, with points awarded for both Saturday and Sunday feature races with the exception of the Sunday races at Circuit of the Americas as the champions will be crowned at that event’s Saturday evening banquet.
COTA, of course, also hosts SVRA’s current Bell Racing National Championships, a single-event competition open to all competitors from any vintage racing series with a runoff style format.
The SVRA endurance series championship will take place at the following tracks: Sebring International Raceway, Amelia Island Vintage GP, Willow Springs, Road America, Indianapolis Motor Speedway (Open Wheel Challenge), Indianapolis Motor Speedway (Brickyard Invitational), Mid-Ohio, Portland International, Watkins Glen, Virginia International Raceway.
In addition to those venues, the sprint race championship series will include weekends at Roebling Road Raceway, Auto Club Speedway, and COTA. For full details on the structure of these national season points championships please visit www.svra.com
