Pacific Northwest Historics
The Pacific Northwest Historics is a volunteer-driven event sanctioned by SOVREN (Society of Vintage Racing Enthusiasts) Race Club and the SOVREN Guild of Seattle Children’s Hospital. The Historics is the premier vintage sports car race in the Northwest and the largest charity motorsports event in the United States. In 2015, the Pacific Northwest Historics raised $467,000 for Seattle Children’s. These fundraising efforts will improve the lives of many families with children in need.
While the Guild’s effort is for charity, don’t be misled. The car owners, drivers and crews are in it for the racing. The Pacific Northwest Historics is one of the most popular vintage races on the West Coast, drawing competitors from most western states. In past years, drivers have traveled from as far as Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
We have a lot in store for the 2016 PNW Historics, including the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the SOVREN Guild. Meet guest celebrity Lyn St. James and get an autograph or picture! Over race weekend we will also be celebrating the 60th Anniversary of Corvette Racing, including a special appearance on Saturday, July 1st of the Corvette Legends. We also welcome the Cooper Racing Cars 70th Anniversary Reunion, the always colorful and fun BMW Pro3 Race Group, and much more!
