The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) United States Vintage Racing National Championship was held November 4-8, 2015 at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. The 3rd annual event featured close competition for a National Championship that showcased almost 75 years of historical automobiles.
The field at the SVRA Vintage Racing Nationals 2015 competed in 11 race groups and two enduros, with a national champion crowned in each class. Staged on the same 20-turn, 3.4-mile track as the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix, participants battled the undulating circuit that offers dramatic, natural elevation changes along with a 133-foot climb up to its signature Turn 1.
Interesting and notable cars at the 2015 SVRA U.S. Vintage Nationals included the 1958 Echidna Roadster; 1959 Taraschi Formula Junior; 1959 Lotus 17; 1963 Genie Mk VII; 1964 Causey Special; 1965 Ferrari 1512; 1969 Lola T70 Mk III; 1969 Surtees TS-5 F5000 and 1976 Lola 332C F5000; among others.
