EVENT DESCRIPTION:
The Pacific Northwest Historics features many of the world's rarest and most beautiful pre-1972 race cars.  The featured marque for the 2016 Pacific Northwest Historics will be Corvette, and we are excited to welcome back the BMW PRO3 Group. Other favorite marques including Mustangs, Camaros, Porsches, Alfa Romeos, and some less recognizable names like Marcos, Devin, and Piper will be racing.  Most are in mint condition through extensive restoration, and many attain speeds in excess of 150 miles per hour.  

The wheel to wheel competition runs on the challenging 2.25 mile Pacific Raceways road course which includes nine turns, a 200-300 foot elevation drop, and a near  mile straightaway. The paddock area and in-field are open to all spectators.
