The 2019 Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) season begins with an all-new event at a familiar and favorite venue with the inaugural HSR Spring Fling at Sebring International Raceway, March 28 - 31, offering a large amount of track time for competitors.



The Spring Fling weekend includes the first 2019 rounds of the B.R.M. Chronographes Endurance Challenge that have been expanded to 90 minutes in length for the Sebring opener. Even more track time is available to competitors in all Run Groups with the addition of a fourth qualifying session at the Spring Fling, one more than the usual three qualifying runs offered on typical HSR race weekends.



The extra session was added in Friday's opening day of official competition that will see each Run Group take to the legendary Sebring circuit for three qualiying runs in a jam-packed day of on-track action. An unofficial Thursday track test day is also available to competitors wanting to get the most out of their season-opening HSR race weekend.



Friday concludes with the opening race of the 2019 Sasco Sports International/American Challenge, which joins the B.R.M. Enduros, HSR Global GT and HSR Classic RS Cup as the weekend's feature races.



The WeatherTech Sprint Series anchors the Spring Fling weekend schedule with the usual lineup of Saturday/Sunday doubleheader rounds for all Run Groups.



The Sebring opener also showcases some rarely seen Pre-World War II race cars that will take to the track in their own "PreWar" Run Group all three days of the HSR Spring Fling weekend.

 


Competitor entries are open and spectator tickets are now on sale for the HSR Spring Fling, which is the first of HSR's annual pair of races on the legendary Sebring International Raceway circuit in 2019. Nine months from now, the HSR racing year once again concludes with the season-ending HSR Sebring Historics, December 4 - 8.



A variety ticket options, from tent camping and daily admission on up to RV Parking and Spring Fling weekend tickets, are available at www.HSRTickets.com. Advance ticket orders will be shipped starting in February with any orders placed after March 15 held at HSR Will Call in the Driver/Crew Registration Office at Sebring starting March 28.



The early-entry deadline for competitors is March 14, and Run Groups are available for everything from the "PreWar" classics to nearly every type of sports car from the past 70 years and Stock Cars to open-wheel Formula and Indy cars. Race entry forms are available at www.HSRRace.com.
More information, competitor race event entry forms and details on spectator tickets can be found on the official HSR Spring Fling event page at www.HSRRace.com.


 


The HSR Spring Fling is the lead-in event for the 42nd HSR Mitty, Round 2 on the 2019 HSR Schedule, which takes place at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, April 25 - 28.






Noteworthy



- Sasco Sports returns to HSR in 2019 for its second year of title sponsorship of the popular Sasco Sports International/American Challenge series. The established racing supplier also recently announced that Hoosier Racing Tires have been added to the company's already strong offering of racing tires to HSR competitors.
