The home of Grand Prix racing in the United States, Savannah, Georgia will host the 10th annual Savannah Speed Classic from 24-26 October. The event, which serves as the opening of The Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d'Elegance, is being expanded this year to include a number of new races.
The highlight of the track action will be a class for pre-war racers that is set to include Bill Stelcher's 1929 Ford Model A Speedster, Mike Bartels' 1934 MG PA, Miles Whitlocks 1919 Ford Model T and Charles Ebert's 1939 Ford Dreyer Special. The group made its first appearance at the event last year, and is due to return with a much-expanded field for 2014.
Professional drivers Bobby Rahal and Hurley Haywood will also be on hand to offer hot passenger laps, which will range in price from $50 to $200.
There will also be plenty to see away from the track, including a parade of 40 classic racers through the centre of Savannah, which will be following a police escort.
The Georgia circuit has a rich racing tradition, previously holding the Grand Prize Race of the Automobile Club of America in 1908, the American Grand Prize in 1910, and the Vanderbilt Cup Race in 1911.
