Historic car weekend at Sonoma Raceway

The Classic Sports Racing Group will open its 47th season with the David Love Memorial Vintage Races tomorrow, Saturday, April 5, and Sunday, April 6, at Sonoma Raceway.

Love, who passed away in 2013, was a longtime Bay Area resident and CSRG co-founder, who was instrumental in the growth of the organization, which has contributed more than $600,000 to the Sonoma chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities, the charitable arm of Sonoma Raceway, through its race weekends.

Gracing the Valley’s 12-turn, 2.52-mile road course will be approximately 200 vintage and historic race cars, including Formula 1 cars, prototype and production sports cars principally from 1950s to 1970s, as well as some notable cars from the 1930s.

Included among the expected drivers competing in the event are former Indianapolis 500 Rookie of the Year Lyn St. James and Formula Atlantic Champion Dan Marvin.

There will be eight vintage race groups competing in three races each on Saturday and Sunday, for a total of 24 races over the course of the weekend.
