HMSA Spring Club Races 2017: Report and photos

The HMSA Spring Club Races 2017 was staged March 18-19 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Salinas, California. The two-day Historic Motor Sports Association event featured Formula Fords at the 11-turn, 2.238-mile road course on the Monterey Peninsula. After weeks and weeks of rain in Monterey, Mother Nature was kind and participants were treated to moderate temperatures and mostly clear skies. Seven run groups took to the track with only a few missed steps over the two days. The Formula Ford guys were given their own run group and a huge field turned up for what would be the first of a multi-race series for the class. The racing was tight and clean at the HMSA Spring Club Races 2017, with very few people cutting the thick green grass and wild flowers that were popping up all around the track.

The 2017 Vernasca Silver Flag Hill Climb will be staged June 16-18 near Vernasca in Northern Italy. Event organizers are throwing the doors open to “the most beautiful cars in the world” to participate in this year’s Silver Flag. “Rather than concentrating on a specific marque, we wanted to celebrate people’s passion and aspirations and allow everyone to bring the car of their dreams,” said organiser Claudio Cassali. “So this year, the theme of Vernasca Silver Flag is us! The fanatics and dreamers who check their pockets and who have finally managed to realise their dreams, whether we are talking about cars worth millions or a few thousand Euros.”
