The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association’s inaugural Amelia Island Vintage Gran Prix at the Fernandina Beach Airport pays tribute to the early sports car tradition of racing on airfield circuits. Once very popular racing venues, especially in the Southeast, airfields were a haven for speed. The Amelia Island Vintage Gran Prix marks a return to racing on the Fernandina Airport, where sports cars raced in the 1960s and 1970s. SVRA pays homage to those earlier races with this invitation-only event, with race groups ranging from pre-war cars up through the 1980s.
The event will be presented in the spirit of the original races: hay bales, period dress and all.
The weekend not only promises a huge gathering of race cars but also some of the finest privately owned vintage and historic collector cars will be staged on the golf course for the Show and Shine car show. Multiple vintage airplane flyovers, and vintage motorcycle demonstrations are on the schedule. Race fans and car enthusiasts can enjoy the cars, meet the drivers, and enjoy participating in the unique racing history of airfield auto racing.
*Coolers are not allowed in this venue.*
