First, Racers from all over the country competed last weekend in the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association’s inaugural Amelia Island Vintage Gran Prix at Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport. The race revived the Gold Crown Prix held on the same runways from 1961 to 1974. SVRA president Tony Parella, who ran a 1934 Chevrolet Indy 500 racer and a black Corvette on the 2.1-mile course on two of the airport’s three runways, was happy with the premiere, which saw about 13,000 spectators total, 150 race cars and 40 historic racing motorcycles.
