HMSA members are dedicated to the restoration, preservation and racing of historic race cars. These events are true race meetings comprised of practice sessions and races. Run groups are arranged by speed potential and age of the cars entered for a particular event. Although wheel to wheel racing is common, drivers are encouraged to respect the historic value of the machines.
The hallmarks of a typical HMSA club event are non-spectator, exclusive, semi-competitive with nothing to be won except great experiences, plenty of track time and the camaraderie of fellow members
