Barber Motorsports Park will join with Historic Motorsports Productions (HMP) to present a unique vintage racing and automotive lifestyle event. “Bobby Rahal’s Legends of Motorsports” will debut at the stunning permanent road course on May 20-23, 2010.
“Barber Motorsports Park is a jewel among North American racing facilities,” said Rahal, winner of the 1986 Indianapolis 500. “The attention to detail throughout the property is unsurpassed. The Barber organization’s appreciation and respect for racing evolution is obvious, making any vintage racing event on their grounds a tradition in the making.”
Barber Motorsports Park and HMP will host a wide array of vintage racing car classes on the immaculately manicured permanent road course. These include GTP/Group C; 3.0 Liter era Formula One; F.I.A. Championship of Makes; 2.0 Liter Sports Racers; Trans-Am; Can-Am; NASCAR; IMSA GT/Production Cars; Formula Libre and F5000.
“Bobby Rahal is a true racing hero and an active steward of American racing tradition,” said Jeff Ewing, vice president, Zoom Motorsports, promoters for Barber Motorsports Park. “He and HMP will bring a stirring collection of amazing teams and priceless bygone cars to our track. And with Bobby’s talented son Graham expected to compete in our debut Indy Racing League event, Barber Motorsports Park will host two generations of Rahals in 2010.”
Above and beyond the thrilling on-track action, Barber’s Legends of Motorsports weekend will also incorporate unique shoulder programming including a public race car parade, cocktail reception and charity event. Ticket prices and packages for the weekend event are expected to soon be announced.
“As a fellow vintage racer, I’m excited to join with so many of the best in our sport at Barber Motorsports Park, a truly extraordinary track,” said Peter Stoneberg, partner, Historic Motorsports Productions. “The love of auto racing is extremely strong throughout the Southeast and with few places more passionate than Alabama. With Bobby Rahal literally leading the parade, we’ll have something for hard-core NASCAR fans and much, much more.”
