On Monday, December 30, the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) announced that Hawk Performance will be the title sponsor for its popular endurance series in 2014. The announcement came via press release from the organization.

The SVRA Hawk Performance Endurance Series will consist of 60-minute and 90-minute enduro events throughout 2014. Sixty-minute races will be run by "small-bore" cars (SVRA groups 1-4, 5A, and 8); the 90-minute events will be run by "big bore" cars (SVRA groups 5B, 6, 7, and 9-11).

According to SVRA, endurance races will run at all eight of the East Coast events as well as the U.S. Vintage Racing National Championship at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas in October.

Hawk will also remain as the official brake pad of SVRA.

About the move, SVRA President and CEO, Tony Parella, stated, "We are very pleased to announce Hawk Performance's increased involvement for the 2014 season," and noted that the company's "partnership with our Endurance Series [is] a natural."

The 2014 SVRA season kicks off in February with a Spring Mountain event in Nevada; the East Coast's first event will be at Sebring, February 27 - March 2.
