All you need is to take the first step.


We’ve got all the details for you so that when you visit Savannah and stay with us during the Savannah Speed Classic, you’ll be ready to just soak in all the excitement from the event and revel in all of the greatness of downtown historic Savannah.


What IS Savannah Speed Classic?

The 2013 Savannah Speed Classic is a 3 day car-racing event across the river from Savannah’s renowned historic district during the last weekend of October (10/25-10/27) with opening ceremonies at Ellis Square on Thursday, October 24. The event is organized by Historic Sportscar Racing, Ltd. (HSR).

For us, travel is an opportunity to experience life in a whole new way.  Our imaginations run wild thinking about that car race as a way to celebrate the beauty of the automobile and the intrigue of humanity’s adventuring spirit. Can we go? We’ll go faster. Can we drive? We’ll drive better. Can we win? We’ll win smarter. These are the thoughts that will be running through our minds at the race track during the last weekend of October


How to Get to the Savannah Speed Classic

The Savannah Speed Classic will wave its checkered flags for you on Hutchinson Island the last week of October. Hutchinson Island is a little oasis North of Savannah, accessible by your vehicle via the beautiful white Tallmudge Bridge -OR- a ferry boat ride.

We like to get on the ferry across from City Hall because, well, City Hall is easy to spot. It’s that big gold leaf dome-topped building (YES, it’s real gold!) at the intersection of Bull and Bay streets. Isn’t it nice to have easy landmarks when you’re in unfamiliar territory? And a source that gets you all the pertinent information? Like this, the Savannah_Belles_Schedule for the ferry, if you want it.
