About this event
Your Buddies at the GGLC are holding a track event at Buttonwillow Raceway on May 29, 2021. This event is open to all types of cars. Open top cars must have a roll bar or factory installed popup bar/rollover protection. Open wheel cars will only be allowed in the Advanced Group. We will not conduct a tech inspection of your car unless its appearance indicates that we should. Lemon's type cars are welcome but we will likely take a close look at it before we let you on track. Any fuel or water/water leaks or loose parts are reason for rejection. Small oil leaks are acceptable. You are responsible for making certain that your car is track-ready. All cars must have 6" tall numbers on both sides. Pick any number.
We are running BOTH directions at this event, going clockwise in the morning and counterclockwise in the afternoon. We did this a few years ago at Buttonwillow and again last season at Thunderhill 5-Mile and it was very popular both times.
We are running 3 groups and each group will get 7or 8 twenty minute sessions.
Advanced Group is for Drivers with 15+ track days experience or equivalent. This group will be open passing without point byes.
Intermediate Group is for drivers with 5+ track days experience or equivalent. This group will allow open passing on most short and long straights without a point bye and passing in turns and braking zones with a point bye.
Novice Group is for drivers with 1+ track days experience or equivalent. This group will allow open passing on the long straights only and passing with a point bye in turns and braking zones.
Sign up for the appropriate group. If you decide at the track that you should be moved to a different group we can normally accommodate this.
At this time we are not accepting Beginners drivers with zero days track experience. If Covid condition improve so that we can put a coach in the passenger's seat then we will allow beginners to signup
Damage to the track, walls, facilities, etc may be charged back to the responsible person. Special charges for fire crews, oil cleanup, etc may also be charged back to the responsible driver. We will decide this on a case-by-case basis.
