Produced and sanctioned by Historic Motor Sports Association (HMSA), the 36th annual Historics will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the MGB. In addition to the honored marque MGB, the Portland Historics will also feature a special race group for the screaming Formula 1 cars from the 1970s and 1980s. Marques such as Porsche, Ferrari, Jaguar, Alfa and Cobra will also be raced and on display over the weekend.
The event’s open paddock allows spectators a close-up look at cars they may have only seen in books while drivers and crew members answer questions and sign autographs. Classic Sports Cars and Hot Rods will be on display. All car corral participants will be given a lap of the track as well as a chance to compete in the infield autocross. Vendors and great food will fill out the day.
HMSA announced that advance sale discount tickets are now available online. Spectators will save approximately 25% over the gate ticket price when purchasing online. Children under 12 are admitted free. Go to Portland Historics to purchase tickets.
