AUSTIN -- Historic Grand Prix is an American series that brings back memories of some of Formula 1 s vintage years, the period from 1966 to 1983 when the cars ran to a three-liter engine formula and developments included the famous ground effect cars of the early 80s.

The HGP organization is comprised of more than 50 owner-drivers of authentic vintage 3-litre models with a goal to preserve the historically correct presentation and performance of the cars, some of them originally driven by racing legends such as Niki Lauda and Mario Andretti.
