50th Anniversary Of The United States Road Racing Championship To Be Celebrated At The Atlanta Historic Races

A tribute to the original SCCA Pro Road Racing Series of 1963 thru 1968.

The USRRC Seniors Tour feature races have been held on vintage and historic racing weekends since 1990. These races salute the 1963-1968 series, when grids included Sports Racers and Production GT Sports Cars. All the great teams and drivers raced in those early years. Cobra, E Type, Mustang, Lotus Cortina, Corvette, Porsche and more.

It was a huge shock in late 1962 when SCCA announced a pro USRRC Series beginning in 1963. The races attracted large grids, sponsors and manufacturers. Carroll Shelby's organization swept both championships in 1963.

Sports Racing, cars in the early years included those from Shelby, Chaparral, Lotus, Elva, McLaren, Genie, McKee, Lola, Ferrari, Maserati and more in both over and under 2 liter classes.

The Production Cars included cars from Ford, AC, Corvette, Ferrari, Jaguar, Aston Martin, Maserati and other FIA GT car makers.
