The 2019 Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) season begins late March from with the inaugural HSR Spring Fling at Sebring International Raceway, March 28 - 31, an all-new event on the HSR schedule that offers competitors a serious amount of track time on a familiar and favorite venue.
Inaugural Spring Fling weekend highlights include the opening 2019 rounds of the B.R.M. Chronographes Endurance Challenge, which have been expanded to 90 minutes in length for the Sebring opener. Every Run Group also has an additional fourth qualifying session at the Spring Fling, one more than the usual three qualifying races offered on most HSR race weekends.
The extra sessions are part of Friday's opening day of official competition that will see each Run Group take to the Sebring circuit for three qualifying runs in a full day of on-track action. An unofficial Thursday track test day is also on the schedule for competitors looking to begin the 2019 HSR season with a maximum amount of track time.
Friday's feature events include the 2019 Sasco Sports International/American Challenge, which joins the B.R.M. Enduros, HSR Global GT and HSR Classic RS Cup as the weekend's showcase races.
The WeatherTech Sprint Series is also a weekend schedule highlight with its standard lineup of Saturday/Sunday doubleheader sprints for all Run Groups.
The Sebring opener also showcases some rarely seen Pre-World War II race cars that will take to the track in their own "PreWar" Run Group all three days of the HSR Spring Fling weekend.
Competitor entries are open and spectator tickets are now on sale for the HSR Spring Fling, which is the first of HSR's annual pair of races on the legendary Sebring International Raceway circuit in 2019. The HSR racing year once again concludes with the season-ending HSR Sebring Historics, December 4 - 8.
