J Bittle WINS the 2021 Sonoma SpeedTour
After a two-year absence, SVRA returned to Sonoma for the Sonoma SpeedTour, an invitational event that showcases some of the world’s finest race cars, the oldest dating to before World War I.
Sonoma’s 12-turn, 2.52-mile course features 160 feet of elevation changes, fast sweeping turns and a challenging carousel. The track’s proximity to scenic Sonoma and Napa wine regions make it a popular destination for competitors and race fans alike.
This past weekend wasn’t without its challenges, but the JBA Crew pulled together and took home the gold. Team JBA fought through transmission issues on Saturday after losing 3rd gear during afternoon practice. Lead Mechanic Tim Naylor had the broken trans out of the car and the backup unit in and ready to go before dinner. Thank you to all those who came out and made this a truly spectacular weekend of racing.
Next weekend you can see J race his 1968 Mustang at beautiful Laguna Seca, one of the most spectacular race venues in the world!
Built in 1957, Laguna’s 11-turn, 2.2-mile race course has it all: high-speed banked turns, serious elevation changes, fast straights, challenging technical corners and one of the most famous sequences in motorsport…blind, plunging Left-Right esses called The Corkscrew.
WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca has hosted almost every elite racing series including USSRC, Can-Am, Trans-Am, Formula 5000, CART, IndyCar, IMSA GT, American Le Mans, Grand American and the Rolex Monterey Historics, as well a two-wheel AMA, MotoGP and World SuperBike.
Historic Trans-Am (HTA) racers will celebrate Trans-Am’s legacy at Laguna Seca, involving some of American racing’s greatest cars and drivers. HTA will close the weekend with the Sunday Feature Reunion race.
