A 1977 Porsche at the Mitty

2015 Speedfest at the Classic Motorsports Mitty . . .

A little history:  Historic Race Car Racing was formed in the mid-70’s with an event at Road Atlanta.  There was one goal then and it remains true today: “to celebrate the race cars from our past!”

As a “time machine” of sights and sounds, HSR provides a venue for competitors and spectators alike to share in the wonderful history and excitement created by the cars that competed at race tracks around the world.

Vintage racing’s promise is to resurrect the past glories of sports car racing for a modern audience, and no event does that better than the Classic Motorsports Mitty.

This 3 day event is spectacular!  

2015 Speedfest at Road AtlantaAt most big-time races, when the cars come off the track, they’re hidden away.  But that isn’t how things operate at the Mitty!  Want a close-up look at an Audi R8, or a Porsche 911 RSR?  Let me tell you, your senses will be overwhelmed!

Speedfest at the Classic Motorsports Mitty it’s an automotive festival:

  • Club corrals fill the Road Atlanta infield.
  • Free test drives are available.
  • Vendors offer amazing finds.
  • Hospitality is available for all.
  • And last but not least the Classic Motorsports staff is on hand to provide a behind-the-scenes look. And the grand marshal isn’t whisked from motorhome to motorhome, as he’ll be palling around with other race fans all weekend.

Yes, Come celebrate the odd, original and overlooked. Have a Cosworth Vega? Bring it. Edsel? Yes, please. Giant American station wagon? We’ll make room. Grassroots Motorsports Magazine and Hagerty Insurance have inexplicably sponsored this expansion of the Concours d’LeMons empire.

Full Weekend of Entertainment: In addition to the full slate of HSR-sanctioned historic racing, the Mitty weekend includes live music, technical seminars, infield camping, vendor row, amazing access, free paddock access, car club corrals, parade laps around the track, and so much more. And don’t forget, it all takes place at Road Atlanta, one of the country’s most exciting tracks.

This was a fantastic event.  Hearing the stories, the history, watching the races – it brought back those memories!
