North American-based Historic Grand Prix will make its first appearance at the HSR Mitty SpeedFest taking place May 1-4, 2008 at Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA.
Historic Grand Prix consists of authentic vintage Formula One racing cars from the FIA 3.0 liter era that raced from 1966 – 1983. The series is designed to present fast, colorful and spirited racing at select venues in North America.
Mitty SpeedFest organizers expect more than 30 F1 cars, all representing a pinnacle period of racing around the world. Additionally, Bob Varsha, Speed TV’s current F1 announcer, will be on hand to call the events throughout the weekend.
Although the field has not been announced, the typical roster of cars includes many Grand Prix and Championship winners, including the 1981 USGP-winning Williams FW07C, plus several Ferraris, Lotus and many other cars of unique pedigree.
