The 2019 Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) season begins with an all-new event at a familiar and favorite venue with the inaugural HSR Spring Fling at Sebring International Raceway, March 28 - 31, offering a large amount of track time for competitors.
The Spring Fling weekend includes the first 2019 rounds of the B.R.M. Chronographes Endurance Challenge that have been expanded to 90 minutes in length for the Sebring opener. Even more track time is available to competitors in all Run Groups with the addition of a fourth qualifying session at the Spring Fling, one more than the usual three qualifying runs offered on typical HSR race weekends.
The extra session was added in Friday's opening day of official competition that will see each Run Group take to the legendary Sebring circuit for three qualiying runs in a jam-packed day of on-track action. An unofficial Thursday track test day is also available to competitors wanting to get the most out of their season-opening HSR race weekend.
Friday concludes with the opening race of 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 feature races.
The WeatherTech Sprint Series anchors the Spring Fling weekend schedule with the usual lineup of Saturday/Sunday doubleheader rounds 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. 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.
The HSR Spring Fling is the lead-in event for the 42nd HSR Mitty, Round 2 on the 2019 HSR Schedule, which takes place at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, April 25 - 28.
