Description: “A racing driver needs to be fed a diet of other racing drivers.” – Carroll Smith
Willow Springs International Raceway is the oldest permanent road course in the United States, hosting its inaugural race in November, 1953. All SVRA race groups are invited to this historic 2.5-mile, 9-turn track. Friday is an open Test Day. A Mazda Miata Heritage Cup Series race has been added to the schedule. The feature is a Ford versus Chevy grudge race!
Nestled against the foothills of California high desert, Willow Springs challenges include substantial elevation changes and a very tricky decreasing-radius final turn. The long high-speed straights and fast corners earned Willow the moniker, “Fastest Road in the West.”
For seven decades, Willow’s close proximity to Hollywood has made the track a favorite for commercials, television shows and movies. Action scenes in everything from The Love Bug to BBC’s Top Gear have been filmed at the circuit. In addition to a weekend of racing, other activities still in development will make this a jam-packed weekend.
Join SVRA for an entertaining race weekend at a famous venue that’s sure to become one of your favorites.
