Letter From the CEO  

Welcome to the PERMCO Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio, a SpeedTour event!  Cars spanning over 75 years of racing and technology will be on the track and on display this weekend. The paddocks are rich with racing icons that include Lotus, Alfa Romeo, Ford, Mustang, Porsche, Brabham among many more.

The Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli, SVRA, International GT, FR Americas Championship Powered by Honda and the Formula 4 United States Championship Powered by Honda have come to challenge Mid-Ohio’s, 13-turn, 2.5-mile road course. This SpeedTour event will be live streamed, too! 

There are plenty of trackside activities to share with friends and family. Take some time to check out Vendor Row, wander through the garages or have lunch on the hill by the esses. The weekend’s Car Shows are huge, with displays of everything from immaculate Corvettes, to pristine modern Exotics and deliberately-funky Rat Rods.

This event offers something for everyone! Whether you’re an admirer of Prototype race cars, a vintage Corvette fan or enjoy the sound of 850 hp Trans Am cars as they accelerate into Turn 1, your visit to Mid-Ohio is sure to be memorable.

I’m thrilled to present this world-class event and to welcome drivers, fans and enthusiasts of all ages to the Mid-Ohio SpeedTour.

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

Best Regards,

Tony Parella
CEO, Parella Motorsports Holdings
