About Our Club

The Alaska Sports Car Club was founded in 1958 to run a series of year-round car racing events that include road racing, ice racing, and autocross. The club became The Anchorage Alaska Sports Car Lions Club in 2010 and continues to host motorsports events, while also serving the Anchorage community and supporting local and international charities.

The Alaska Sports Car Club is a registered affiliate with SFI Foundation, Inc.
