We are pleased to announce registration is open for our first Putnam Park Track Day. We were given a unique opportunity to rent the track for a day.
Lappers will be split up into groups based on skill level. Novice (0 -4 track days), Intermediate (4+ track days), and Advanced. This will give all skill levels the best experience. Each group will do 20 minute sessions lapping. There will be 3 sessions an hour from 9am until 5pm. This may change depending on how many people we are signed up for the event and the skill level. We may only have 2 groups with sessions every 20 minutes.

First of all I want to thank everyone who attended. I also want to thank all of those who posted the event online on various forums and helped with getting registrations for our event. We will be working on another event maybe two for next year at Nelson Ledges in the coming months. We also want to thank all of our sponsors. With their help and Kerrie at Nelson Ledges we were able to offer you a lower registration fee. With that being said we are open to additional sponsorships for the next event. Shoot us an email if your group, company or organization would be interested in sponsoring our next event.
With this event and all future events we plan not only to offer you a safe and affordable way to put your vehicles on the track, but also provide a level of service and event coverage that other groups are missing.
