Friday Five: SVRA Motostalgia Auction at The Brickyard

Published On June 17, 2016 » 1821 Views» By Samantha Gray » Uncategorized

World-class vintage racing returns for a third time to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the SVRA Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational. More than 500 vintage race cars will take center stage on both the road course and the historic oval during the weekend, offering drivers and the fans the widest variety of motor racing available anywhere.

Along with races, Motostalgia will host a collector car auction for the second year at IMS. The auction, preview, and display of all auction cars will be hosted indoors within the Pavilion buildings directly behind the iconic IMS Panasonic Pagoda and around the Plaza.

Here are some of the iconic cars we’d raise our hand to bid on.
