......with the HSR Barber Historics, May 17 - 19






- Inaugural HSR Barber Historics Second of Three All-New Events on 2019 HSR Schedule


- Three Full Days of On-Track Action Features B.R.M. Chronographes Enduros, WeatherTech Sprints, Sasco Sports International/American Challenge and More


- Formula Junior Returns to HSR Spotlight as HSR Barber Historics Featured Run Group

 




The second of three all-new events on the 2019 Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) schedule takes place this weekend at Barber Motorsports Park where HSR makes its venue debut on the pristine 2.38-mile road course with three full days of historic and vintage racing at the HSR Barber Historics, May 17 - 19.



The HSR Barber debut follows March's season-opening HSR Spring Fling, which was an all-new event weekend at Sebring International Raceway. Next month brings the inaugural HSR Ridge Runner Rally, June 23 - 28, an already sold-out road rally for HSR members throughout the Southeast.



This weekend's HSR Barber Historics is the current order of business, however, and is highlighted by a full slate of five feature races. The ample lineup includes two B.R.M. Chronographes Enduro Challenges, Friday's weekend-opening SascoSports International/American Challenge sprint and Sunday's HSR Global GT and HSR Classic RS Cup races.




In addition to the feature races, the HSR Barber Historics is anchored by WeatherTech Sprint races for all run groups in a Saturday/Sunday doubleheader format. The first round of WeatherTech Sprints starts Saturday at 12:20 p.m. CDT with Sunday's final run of races split in two segments at 9:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. CDT.

 


Another highlight is the return of vintage single-seat race cars to the HSR spotlight with Formula Junior as the Featured Run Group of the HSR Barber Historics. Twin Formula Junior feature races will be held as part of the WeatherTech Sprint schedules Saturday and Sunday. Saturday's Formula Junior feature starts at 12:50 p.m. CDT while Sunday's finale kicks-off the day's WeatherTech Sprint races at 9:30 a.m. CDT.



The one-hour B.R.M. Enduro Challenges are home to specific and period-matching groups of race cars. Saturday afternoon's Vintage and GT Classic (GTC) race is scheduled to start at 2:50 p.m. CDT while Sunday's race for Historic, Prototype and GT Modern (GTM) cars kicks-off the final day of competition at the HSR Barber Historics with an 8 a.m. CDT green flag.




A longtime favorite of HSR competitors, the Sasco Sports International/American Challenge is a production-car showcase of big-bore American-made iron racing head-to-head with top sports cars from Europe and beyond.



The flat-out sprint has competitors racing for the overall win in addition to top-three honors in the International, American and all-Porsche classes. The first race of the HSR Barber Historics weekend, the Sasco Sports sprint starts Friday at 4:45 p.m. CDT.




The popular HSR Global GT and HSR Classic RS Cup series share the track in a dual-feature sprint race that will bring the curtain down on the inaugural HSR Barber Historics weekend Sunday at 2:15 p.m. CDT.

 


Global GT is home to a variety of contemporary but recently retired GT racing machines while the Classic RS Cup rekindles the thrill of the original 1970's International Race of Champions (IROC) Porsche series, featuring only Porsche 911 Carrera RS/RSR/IROC and closely related models from that era.




Joining July's 15th Sommet des Légendes at Le Circuit Mont-Tremblant in Quebec, Canada, the HSR Barber Historics is the first of 2019's two partner events with the Historic Motor Sports Association (HMSA). The HSR Barber Historics also shares the track this weekend with the Blue Marble Cocktails Radical Cup North America series that adds to the full schedule of on-track action with three feature races of its own.




Tickets are available to the public for the HSR Barber Historics Saturday and Sunday. Online information on a variety of admission ticket, camping and parade lap options is available by clicking here.




Noteworthy




- Featured Run Group Formula Junior entries headed to the HSR Barber Historics represent some of earliest years - 1959 through 1963 - of the small displacement open-wheel category. The list includes rare and seldom seen race cars such as a 1959 Bandini F/Jr, an American-made 1959 Huffaker BMC Mk 1, the home-built 1961 Dreossi Special and similar open-wheel offerings of this golden era from Cooper, Elva, Brabham, Lola and Lotus. Formula Junior last appeared with HSR as a Featured Run Group in the 2018 HSR Mitty at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.

 


- The Barber Historics gives competitors and race fans alike a chance to visit not only one of North America's most pristine venues and circuits but also the opportunity to take in the amazing Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum. Located on the Barber Motorsports Park grounds and right alongside the circuit, the Barber Museum is in a modern, five-story building and houses an unmatched collection of both two-wheel and four-wheel machinery. The car collection focused on Lotus from the beginning but has since expanded to include other legendary manufacturers. The accompanying motorcycle collection has been named the largest on the planet by Guinness World Records.





About HSR: Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) was formed in the mid-1970s with an event at Road Atlanta. There was one goal then and it remains true today: to celebrate the race cars from the past. As a "time machine" of sights and sounds, HSR provides a venue for competitors and spectators alike to share in the wonderful history and excitement created by the cars that competed at race tracks around the world. HSR currently sanctions eight vintage and historic racing events at some of the world's most renowned race tracks, including Road Atlanta, Sebring International Raceway, Daytona International Speedway and more. The complete schedule and full event information can be found on HSR's website at www.HSRRace.com. Look for the HSR Channel on YouTube and follow HSR on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/HSRrace/ and on Twitter and Instagram at @HSR_race. A dedicated website for the Classic 24 Hour at Daytona presented by IMSA is available at www.Classic24hour.com.
