Alpine Mountain Region’s “No Excuses” DE
Presented by Porsche of Colorado Springs
Pueblo Motorsports Park, Pueblo, CO
It’s been a while since we’ve been to Pueblo, and now we’re coming back. Always one of our favorites but saddled in recent years with management and maintenance issues, Pueblo Motorsports Park is back, and so are we. The track is now in reliable and experienced hands after several years of being idle. It’s conveniently located only about 30 minutes from Colorado Springs and about 90 minutes from Denver. The track’s been resurfaced recently and is in great shape Concerned about weather? Well, mid-May in Southern Colorado is about as good a bet as you’ll find (probably won’t snow or have temps in the 90’s either). Too expensive? Let’s compare: Autocross: $40, with five runs; total seat time: 8 minutes. DE: $210, with two hours of seat time over two days. Which is the better deal? If you’re new to DE, this track is an outstanding venue; we’ll have instructors teach you the basics, and you’ll be placed in run groups with your peers, so don’t worry about running with the big dogs.
Bottom line: Great track that you haven’t run for a while (or ever), reasonable cost, lots of seat time, convenient location, and the odds are with us for good weather. We’ll even help with your lunch cost. In other words, no excuses for not coming out and joining us for a great weekend on May 18-19.
But wait, there’s more. The track’s new management, FAAST Motorsports, is offering a “Test ‘n Tune” Day on Friday, May 17, at a cost of $150 for a full day or $90 for a half day. Pay at the gate. Please note that ‘Test ‘n Tune’ is NOT affiliated with PCA or a part of the DE event. You’ll also be able to do a trailer drop at the track on Friday afternoon. Contact FAAST Motorsports (Judy Faass at 719-761-1372) for additional information on the ‘Test ‘n Tune’ session and the trailer drop.
HUGE Shout Out to Porsche of Colorado Springs for helping put on this event – THANK YOU!
Special Thanks to our Adult Beverage (aka “Beer-30”) sponsors: Aspen Auto Clinic and ReinCARnation Auto – THANK YOU!
