Venue & Event Information

SVRA’s Heacock Classic Gold Cup has has withstood the test of time. Since its reopening in 2000, Virginia Intl. Raceway has hosted SVRA events. As soon as the repaving cured and the track restoration was called complete, SVRA racers have enjoyed smooth pavement, elevation changes, and country club like facilities. Grids filled with vintage and historic Sports Racing, Formula and Production/GT race cars continue to celebrate the return of this historic track.

The Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli and IGT will again be on the Heacock Classic schedule. New this year, the Mazda Miata Heritage Cup (a separate race group) has been added to the schedule. This group is made up of 1989-1997 Mazda Miata NA, 1.6 and 1.8L cars. This new race class offers a fun and cost effective “entry point” to vintage racing.

The VIR Car show will again be held on the lush grounds, and get a lap of the track. Over 100 street and performance cars are expected.
