Do you have the best-handling classic car?

MG or Triumph, Ford or Chevy, Ferrari or Porsche: Who makes the best-handling sports car? That’s what the staff of Grassroots Motorsports wants to find out, and their yardstick will be the skidpad, a tool used to judge automotive handling for generations.

Here’s where you come in: You are invited to participate.

The Skidpad Challenge is open to all cars–classic or modern, stock or modified–and awards prizes to class winners.

The Grassroots Motorsports Skidpad Challenge Presented by Hagerty and Lucas Oil will take place during Speedfest at the Classic Motorsports Mitty, the giant historic race weekend that rolls into Road Atlanta April 22-24. The Skidpad Challenge starts at noon on Sunday the 24th, and entry is free for anyone already at the Mitty as a spectator, vendor or race competitor.

The Skidpad Challenge is just one part of a full weekend that also includes HSR historic racing, car corrals, how-to seminars and the world-famous Concours d’LeMons. For more information on the Skidpad Challenge, visit
