A week after running WeatherTech Laguna Seca Raceway, the SVRA drivers, crews, and cars set up camp 150 miles North at Sonoma Raceway, known to Old Timers as Sears Point. Sonoma Raceway’s 12-turn, 2.52-mile road course features more than 16 stories of elevation changes, sweeping turns, and a challenging carousel.  Primarily known as a NASCAR track, Sonoma is a popular track with vintage drivers.

SVRA brought thirteen vintage groups of over two hundred cars to Sonoma, including the crowd favorite Historic Trans-Am. Below is a list of SVRA groups with a couple of images from each group.
