FASTEN YOUR SEATBELTS
YOU'RE IN FOR A SOARING NEW ADVENTURE!
Coast to coast, car enthusiasts of all ages trek in massive numbers to classic car shows and vintage racing venues. Now, such an event is coming to Houston on May 4-6, 2018, and for the first time, links aerospace exploration.
Strada Corsa Houston will feature historic automobile road racing across NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC); aerospace, military, automobile, and celebrity attractions; a collector car auction; and star-studded parties.
Strada Corsa Houston is planned to be held annually the first weekend in May. The inaugural event is scheduled for May 4-6, 2018.
HISTORIC AUTOMOBILE ROAD RACING IS ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING SPORTS IN THE UNITED STATES AND EUROPE
Inspiration for Strada Corsa Houston comes from major signature events, such as Monterey Car Week, which attracts 85,000+ spectators. Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix with 250,000 spectators and England's Goodwood Revival, which caps its attendance at 150,000.
The preservation and racing of these great cars is a common objective of the twenty member clubs of the VMC. There is a great variety in the various clubs and the types of events that they host. Automobile eligibility, racing venues and tracks are highly variable. There is a club to meet everyone’s desire in vintage racing!
Escuderia Charities, Inc. envisions Strada Corsa Houston as an annual event, growing into a nationally acclaimed, weeklong venue, the size, scope, and prestige of Monterey Car Week and the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix. Initially, the inaugural three-day weekend will feature a historic racing series coupled with three grand-scale parties.
Strada Corsa Houston, sponsored by Escuderia Charities, will be a non-profit event.
