Now that Round 2 at Buttonwillow Raceway Park has come and gone, it's time to get ready for Round 3 at Willow Springs International Raceway on Sunday, June 24, 2012!

For the first time ever, Raceline USA will be introducing the Track Hopper, exclusively only at our events. This means that registered drivers will be able to hop over to The Streets of Willow Springs (SOW) anytime during the way to practice, set up their cars, just drive for fun, etc. Unlike the multi-level and session system that will be used at WSIR, SOW will be open to all registered drivers all day. No levels, no sessions. Free run from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM until the track closes. There will be a break for lunch, but other than that, the track will be open for free runs all day long. Only rule is that SOW will be subject to point-by passing only. There will be a mixture of Level 1 - Level 5 drivers, so we want to make the experience as safe and fun as possible. And when you're done SOW you can hop back over to WSIR anytime then come back SOW. It's all up to you.

If anyone wishes attend our SOW event on Saturday, June 23, 2012, only Level 4 will be available for registration since the bulk of the day will be occupied by Super Street Magazine for FF Battle 4/FR Battle.

Having a successful 2011 season, Raceline USA will expand our activities to include more events for the 2012 season. More road courses, more challenges and more fun. It will be exciting as we introduce our new B+, Club205, and Type R/Roadster Challenge Series to challenge our clients that do not wish to spend a lot of money to compete with other drivers.

Open track is the easiest way to learn how to control your vehicle at the limit. Beginner driver should not be afraid of being on track with others on the road course. We have 5 run groups of varying skill level for our clients to feel safe and confident. As our clients hone in their abilities, they also have to opportunity to move up in levels. Each level is on the road course for 20 minutes a session and is rotated from Level 5 down to Level 1. There is plenty of track time for all to enjoy.

Date: Sunday, June 24, 2012
Registration: Registration is unavailable on our website at this time.
