April 27 - Palmer (date correction)


CHIN Motorsports
Chin Motorsports HPDE Track Days

Abbreviated Schedule for Upstate: I've posted VIR dates for the benefit of some because that's my favorite track. But I have to drive VIR probably does not allow the stock S2000. From CHIN's website: "VIR has a requirement for fixed 4-point (or better) roll bars, or 3-point hoops behind the seat for roadsters. This is a strict track standard. Street convertibles and cabriolets with OEM roll protection are generally NOT ACCEPTED."

March 4-5: VIR - 2 courses
April 24: - VIR - Open Track Skilled Driver only
May 6-7: New Jersey Motorsports - Thunderbolt
May 15-16: Watkins Glen
May 20-21: Palmer
May 27-28: Memorial Day Weekend - Pittsburg International (old Beaver Run)
June 5-6: VIR
July 1-2: VIR
July 5-6: Watkins Glen: Note: Wednesday, Thursday
August 12-13: Summit Point
September 2: Palmer
September 4-5: Watkins Glen (Is the 4th Labor Day?)

September 23-24: Pittsburg International
October 22-23: VIR


Hooked on Driving
https://www.hookedondriving.com/home

We've never driven with this group, but the web page indicates that stock S2000s are allowed. Perhaps more entry level, but a little less expensive. From the website: "Most frequently, these HOD track events are broken into 4 run groups, A, beginner, B, intermediate, C, advanced and D, for race-prepped cars and competition drivers. Drivers will be on course approximately 2 hours."

March 11-12: Dominion Raceway
March 25-26: New Jersey Motorsports Park - Thunderbolt
April 17-18: Watkins Glen - Full Course $825
May 21: Pocono (Mega Course - whatever configuration that might be!) $415
June 9-10: Lime Rock (unmuffled) - $455
July 9: Pocono - "full 3.51 mile course" $780
July 29-30: Summit Point - $495
August 12-13: New Jersey Motorsports Park - Lightning?? $775
September 9-10: New Jersey Motorsports Park - $775
October 13-15: 3 days! Watkins Glen $1,175

You aren't losing it. I see a Pocono date was added for the BMW ///MPACT event.

Thanks for starting this up Jeff. If I get the chance I'd like to go back to Club Motorsports again. Hopefully they are open for business and allow clubs like SCDA to run events.

After watching your on track video I too would like to venture to this track. Like you said, its like Watkins and Palmer had a baby. I think it would be in their financial interest to allow at least the larger clubs to attend and thus gain greater exposure of their facility.

I think you're right, IIRC they even turn away Z3 guys. But this event is run by NASA. This isn't a BMW CCA run HPDE.

The ideal Club Motorsports candidate is of the highest social position and also rich. I have a feeling that our chances of getting re-invited might be slim to none.
