We have three remaining track dates – and for those of you who haven’t yet joined us at the track I wanted to draw your attention in particular to our upcoming date at Gingerman Raceway on Monday, August 11th, located on the west side of Michigan this track may be more convenient for those who’ve previously attended Grattan, but can’t make our Waterford events.



Remaining Track Dates:

Waterford: Wednesday, July 16th

Gingerman: Monday, August 11th

Grattan: Oct 4th & 5th



Waterford: Wednesday, July 16th

We are now in the run-up to our second (and last) Waterford Hills event of the year – next week, Wednesday July 16th. We still have spots available, applications and details for the event are at MotorsportReg.com : MotorsportReg.com > Online Registration for Driving Events or email [email protected].



Gingerman Raceway: Monday, August 11th

Beyond the Waterford event we are excited to be holding our first ever track event at Gingerman Raceway on Monday August 11th. For those who don’t know the track, Gingerman is located nr. South Haven, MI and Saugatuk, MI, about 35 miles west of Kalamazoo. The track is significantly larger in scale than Waterford – longer straights and wider more open corners – yet still challenging and technical in their design. As a relatively new and Alan Wilson designed track it is extremely safe with generous run-off areas and very novice friendly. In other words, it is an excellent track for novice and experienced drivers alike. Track website is at http://www.gingermanraceway.com; their pictures may look familiar as it is a favorite test track for Car & Driver and other local auto magazines!



Sign up for both of our upcoming events is at the usual spot at MotorsportReg.com : MotorsportReg.com > Online Registration for Driving Events. I hope you’ll join us!

John - you need to change jobs!

Looks like it will be a great event - we actually have not 30 but almost 50 cars registered and the weather looks great.

About half the cars registered are Lotus - including Lotus Engineerings Bio-Fuel 265E. Lotus Engineering should also be bringing their DARPA car - although only to shake down during lunchtime, not lapping at speed :eek:

See you at the track :D
