The Cavallino Classic Competition 2019 was held January 23-24 at Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, Florida. The first event of the larger Palm Beach Cavallino Classic, this two-day track meet featured a field of competition Ferraris, Maseratis and Alfa Romeos on the 11-turn, 2.043 mile track.
According to organizers, the Cavallino Classic Competition was created to offer owners of these historic race cars the opportunity to compete against other owners in a controlled racing environment.
