The Historic Motor Sports Association (HMSA) in association with ZOOM Motorsports and the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum is pleased to announce that the second annual Barber Historics will be returning to Barber Motorsports Park. The 2016 event will be held on May 20-22, in Birmingham, Alabama.

The event will feature on-track racing action from museum quality racing cars including the IMSA GT series that thrilled fans between 1971 and 1993. Porsche 911RSR to 962, Datsun 240Z to Nissan GTP, Mazda RX7 to GTP, Corvette, Camaro and more will all be racing on track, rekindling memories for fans and participants alike.

In addition to the on-track action, sports car clubs from in and around Birmingham will display their cars, along with the South’s emerging swap meet, wine tastings, official event merchandise and much more. The fan favorite and second annual KCBS sanctioned Barber-Que competition will also be returning, which will include grilling demonstrations, BBQ samplings, live judging, live entertainment and more.

“We are excited to bring back some of the finest cars in the world to what has been called the finest motorsports facility in North America — Barber Motorsports Park,” stated George Dennis, president of ZOOM Motorsports, the exclusive event promoter of Barber Motorsports Park. “Whether you are a car enthusiast or not, this is a social event that the whole family will enjoy.”
