Sports cars have a history. So do the people who race them.

Just ask Brian Redman.

He is a nine-time sports car racing champion - one of the leading racers of his generation in the 1960’s and 1970’s.

In 1991, Brian founded Targa Sixty-Six: an event for owners of vintage and modern high-performance and collector cars to drive their cars at speed - not necessarily racing them - under controlled conditions.

Targa Sixty-Six is one of the offerings at this year’s Chattanooga Motorcar Festival - Friday, October 13th through Sunday, October 15th.

Brian - a former Grand Marshal for the Festival - returns as its Grand Ambassador.
