Vintage car exhibition races, which are part of the Camel Grand Prix of Southern California two-weekend program, will be held today through Sunday at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
Next weekend, the IMSA GT Sports Car Championship will be held at Del Mar.
The races this weekend will feature cars that used to race but are not competitive anymore. Cars range from pre-World War II race cars to old Austin Healys to a 1973 Formula One Shadow. Because of the diversity, the cars are grouped into seven classes, depending on their power potential.
As of late Thursday, 160 cars had entered, but more were expected.
The drivers will practice from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and Saturday, and races will begin at 10 a.m. Sunday. Admission is free today, $5 on Saturday and $10 on Sunday.
Juli Veee and Branko Segota of the Sockers will appear at the San Diego Hall of Champions from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Saturday. The players will give a demonstration and a clinic. The Hall of Champions is located in Balboa Park.
