The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) announced the addition of the Portland Vintage Festival to its schedule of historic car races in 2015. Continuing a nearly 40-year tradition of vintage racing at Portland International Raceway, the 4-day Portland Vintage Festival will be held July 9-12, 2015.
With the prior addition of the Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival, Tony Parella’s SVRA completes its vision to become a national sanctioning body for vintage racing.
“We are excited to have added this event to our 2015 national schedule. The Portland Vintage Festival fills out the western event landscape for SVRA,” said Tony Parella, President and CEO at SVRA. “We are excited for the opportunity to create a first class event at this first class race track. Our members are looking for a fun, challenging, destination track and Portland International Raceway fits that bill.”
Opened in 1960, Portland International Raceway has long been a popular stop for National Championship race series including IMSA, Trans-Am, IndyCar, Indy Light and Championship Atlantic. The 12-turn, 1.97-mile road course is a favorite of vintage racers throughout the Pacific Northwest.
