2023 RSP 2-Day GingerMan Driver's Ed 09/30-10/01

GingerMan Raceway

About this event

  

Registration is open!  We're still finalizing the hotel details, so please check back next week.

Come join Rally Sport Region PCA and their team of nationally recognized instructors for a challenging and enjoyable 2-day driver’s education event at GingerMan Raceway!  This is Rally Sport Region's first visit there in many years.  This is more of a no-frills HPDE than Grattan -- no dinner, no entertainment, etc. -- just two days of good driving and (hopefully) good weather.  We'll explore adding the frills next year if all goes well and you'd like us to fluff things up.

GingerMan is seven miles due east of South Haven, Michigan (bring your water wings if you go 7 miles west of S. Haven!). 

Here a link to some GingerMan track maps:
