HSR events represent fast-paced, wheel-to-wheel racing. To keep competition close, cars are classed according to age and engine size. HSR features several separate groups and will feature the SCCA Formula Lites and F4 Series as well as the Classic RS Cup and Global GT Series. The weekend of racing includes sprint and endurance races.
Perhaps the best part of HSR events is the open feeling experienced by spectators; unlike other series, fans can stroll through the paddock to view the cars and talk with the drivers. Often, racing legends are on hand driving cars they previously raced.
As a result of all this, historic racing is coming of age. Major HSR events attract 300 plus entrants and up to 40,000 spectators. Participants and enthusiasts represent an upscale market with large discretionary incomes. Major corporate sponsors such as WeatherTech, Hawk Performance, and Classic Motorsports.
