SVRA Racing

Posted by on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 in Articles

The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association and Heacock Classic Insurance are thrilled to announce the renewal of one of Vintage Racing’s longest standing sponsorships – the Official Insurance Provider for SVRA.  According to Heacock Classic Insurance President Ford Heacock III, “It was a fantastic year full of achievements for the SVRA in 2013, including expanding their East Coast series from 5 up to 9 races. Under Tony Parella’s leadership, SVRA developed a West Coast schedule – making the club a truly national racing organization.  Of course, the crown jewel of the entire season was the inaugural National Championship at the Circuit of the Americas. This year we are especially excited to attend their new 2014 event at The Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  Heacock Classic is proud to join with SVRA in providing a safe and controlled environment where enthusiasts can fully enjoy their classic race cars with confidence.”

Heacock’s support goes back to 1981, when former Sebring resident Ford Heacock III founded the organization – not a stretch for a kid who spent a lot of time at Sebring Raceway in the garages of some very big names. SVRA’s headquarters soon moved from Lakeland to Summerville, SC, back to Florida, and then from South Carolina to New Hampshire, each move a result of a change of ownership. Today, prominent businessman and racing enthusiast Tony Parella of the Parella Group has ownership of the organization and acts as President and CEO – at least, when he’s not out racing himself.  Parella states “The SVRA is extremely pleased to have Heacock Classic as a partner again in 2014. Their comprehensive line of insurance products and high level of personal service meet the needs of our members both on and off the racetrack. It’s great to continue a relationship that goes back to the very beginning of the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association”.

In support of Parella’s efforts Heacock Classic Insurance has stepped up to become the Official Insurance Provider for the organization and all the events the SVRA will host. Ford Heacock says, ”Our business got started insuring race cars, so we understand what the racing enthusiasts need.  From a guy fresh out of driving school with his first MGB to the most sophisticated multi-car team efforts – we have the right insurance products for your race cars, classics, and hot rods.”
