The 2019 vintage racing season kicks off with three days at Pacific Raceways. Friday is a racers-only tune-up and novice day; Saturday and Sunday will see two full days of racing.
Saturday morning will see practice and qualifying sessions. Racing starts before noon and continues all day on Sunday.
This is the first time since last September the racers have been on the track so look for lots of action throughout the day, from the smallest formula cars to ground pounding Can-Am cars.
This year, it will be held down in the Portland area, which NW-Z is working on. They have a new facility that we may go to. So check back often to get all of the details. This is our opportunity to go down south, have some competitive and fun go kart racing, and hopefully we can bring the coveted Go-Kart Challenge trophy back home!!
CALLING ALL Z’S!!!!! This year they will be celebrating 50 years of the Datsun/Nissan Z Car’s. There will be a car show in Downtown Spokane, Car Corral, & Parade Laps on the track.
The Spokane Festival of Speed again gives us a three-day fix of vintage racing activities. Action starts Friday, June 7th with the Festival Test-N- Tune, followed by the Race Car Tour, a public-road run from the track to downtown Spokane’s beautiful Riverfront Park. There the Festival will host the very popular Bruce Hunt Vintage in the Park vintage racecar show and driver reception.
Saturday and Sunday will have full racing schedules, with some of the races televised for later viewing on network TV. The Festival Race Party will be Saturday evening at the track. The SFOS is again sponsored by Porsche of Spokane in support of the Parkinson’s Resource Center.
Sign up and join us in the car corral and watch some cool old cars race (including Datsun’s) Show off your Z pride for 1 or all 3 days.
Our Premier vintage event, and one of the country’s most prestigious, is the Pacific Northwest Historics. Every year we salute a special car or class of cars, this year we are featuring the great racing tradition of IMSA. Expect to see several special IMSA cars on the track and in the paddock. Three days of racing are offered, and over 200 cars are expected to enter. Special features include a great vendor’s row, Saturday’s Salmon barbeque, and many other events that make the PNW Historics special.
The Historics will continue to benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital, last year we donated $25,000. For more information on the Historics, visit their web site, northwesthistorics.com
