CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – The Chattanooga Motorcar Festival announces who will be running the race this year, plus some new details.

The festival is returning for a 3rd edition on October 14-16 this fall.

Even organizers have named the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association as the sanctioning agent for the Pace Grand Prix at the Bend this time.

The race will be run on a 2.4 mile track built in the heart of the city (on the westside) just for the Festival.

Only vintage and historic cars will race.

The course will be along the Tennessee River and will be longer this year.

It will include an infield loop and other enhancements.

“It’s important to have an experienced sanctioning group handle all the necessary and complicated details that go with operating a race track,” said Festival founder Byron DeFoor. “We feel that the SVRA, with its CEO Tony Parella at the helm and the vast knowledge and expertise the group has acquired, will be valuable assets to our event.”

You do have to apply to get into the Pace Grand Prix at the Bend.  You can apply here.

Tickets for this year’s festival will go on sale, soon.
