The Ultimate Vintage Racing Circus
The Classic Motorsports Mitty is, at its heart, a celebration of motorsports history. Meet motorsports superstars and watch some of the most legendary hardware from years past attack Road Atlanta's iconic turns.
Porsche will be the featured marque at this year's event. And the event’s grand marshal will be a racer who is closely tied to the brand: Hurley Haywood.
Haywood’s association with Porsche began more than 45 years ago; during that time he’s driven Porsches to victory five times at Daytona, three times at Le Mans, and twice at Sebring.
Speedfest at the Classic Motorsports Mitty Presented by Hagerty is more than just a full slate of HSR historic racing, too. It’s an automotive festival. Club corrals fill the Road Atlanta infield. Free test drives are available. Vendors offer amazing finds. Hospitality is available for all. The Classic Motorsports staff is on hand to provide a behind-the-scenes look at legendary cars. And the grand marshal isn’t whisked from motorhome to motorhome, as he’ll be palling around with other race fans all weekend.
At most big-time races, when the cars come off the track, they're hidden away. That's not how things operate at the Mitty. Want a close-up look at a Porsche 911 RSR, an Audi R8 or a BMW Batmobile? Prepare to have your senses overwhelmed.
