Letter From the CEO 

Welcome to Sonoma SpeedTour!

We’re so happy to be back racing at Sonoma Raceway. Cars spanning over 100 years of racing and technology will be on the track and on display.

The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) showcases a variety of vintage road racing icons. Brabham, Datsun, Alfa Romeo, Lotus, National, Lola, Porsche and Corvette are just a few of the legendary nameplates you’ll see on the track and “up-close and personal” in the paddock.

The Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli, returns to Sonoma Raceway with a combined round from the Trans Am by Pirelli West Coast Championship and the new Trans Am ProAm Challenge.

Over 30 authentically-prepared Historic Trans-Am cars from around the country have joined us.  This weekend showcases the traditions and evolution of Trans Am from its original format as a Manufacturers Championship for modified “pony cars” to its contemporary form as a Drivers Championship in GT cars.  

As an extra treat, Saturday’s Car Show will display some of the best Classic and Exotic vehicles that Northern California has to offer.

There’s something for every motorsports enthusiast at Sonoma this weekend, from gleaming Classics, legendary Pre War cars, to thundering 850 hp Trans Am machines. I’m thrilled to present this world-class event.

Whether you’re here as a driver, crew, race official or car show entrant, we all have an obligation to keep everyone around us safe, on and off the track. Please practice social distancing and wear a mask any time you’re within 6 feet of another person. Our constant goal is to “make racing with us safer than going to the grocery store.”

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. Let’s go racing!

Tony Parella
CEO, Parella Motorsports Holdings
