Historic Sportscar Racing will kick off its annual fall stretch of races this week, its four-races-in-four-months schedule including return visits to four legendary U.S. race circuits starting this weekend, September 17-19, at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
After a successful guest appearance last year with the Vintage Sports Car Drivers Association at the Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival, HSR has been invited back for this weekend’s 36th running of the popular Road America event. The ELVF weekend will feature HSR competitors from all classes placed in existing and appropriate VSCDA run groups.
The Road America return is immediately followed by the HSR Fall Historics at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, which is back to its traditional date, September 23-26, after a one-off October running last year due to COVID-19 rescheduling.
The perfect complementary event to April’s HSR Mitty at the Northeast Georgia track, the Fall Historics has developed an appeal and popularity of its own with competitors and race fans alike: Last year’s running was one of the largest ever.
Next up, the centerpiece — the seventh running of the HSR Classic Daytona presented by IMSA, a 24-hour race at Daytona International Speedway, October 27-31. The 2021 event will celebrate perennial sports car racing powerhouse Porsche as this year’s featured marque.
In addition to 24 hours of racing and Porsche in the spotlight, the HSR Classic Daytona weekend will also feature the first HSR Street Stock Road Racing and RS/IS Reunion, a race celebrating the pioneer eras of showroom stock and street stock endurance road racing as well as IMSA Racing Stocks and International Sedans.
Eligible entries include cars that competed in the IMSA Firestone Firehawk Endurance Championship, the SCCA Pro Escort Endurance Championship, the Motorola Cup North American Street Stock Championship, the IMSA Radial Challenge, IMSA Champion Spark Plug Challenge, IMSA Executive Motorhome Challenge and several other street stock and small sedan series from the 1970s and 1980s through earlier in this century.
The HSR Classic Daytona once again will be followed by its sister event, the HSR Classic 12 Hour at Sebring, Pistons and Props, presented by the Alan Jay Automotive Network. The sixth-annual running of the event will close out the 2021 HSR racing season on the legendary Sebring airport circuit, December 1-5.
The HSR Classics events at Daytona and Sebring share the card each weekend with, respectively, the Daytona and Sebring Historics races that will see all season-long HSR championships decided on two of the most iconic circuits in the country.
