About this event
Join us as we host our last (only) Franklin visit for the year.
Franklin is a fantastic venue that really tests your ability to put power to the ground off the corners as well as hit your braking points perfectly. Learn these things well and you will be among the fastest, no matter the car your drive.
This event will be held using our timing system to capture the laps you run so you can track your progress. Most of all you can see if you can repeat your fast laps, not just turn "lucky laps" or "one lap wonders". We will help you understand and practice what it takes to be fast for up to 60+ laps a day.
Our SCDE events are broken up into 2 sessions; Morning from 7AM to 12PM and Afternoon from 12PM to 5PM.
Registration and Tech will be open at 7AM and again at 12pm for the afternoon session. Driver meeting will be at 7:45 and 12:45 respectively.
Either session will provide you with up to 40 minutes of run time. *
The all-day pass avails you up to 1 hour and 20 minutes of run time. *
*UPDATE* Since we are only getting one shot at Franklin this year, we want to make sure we lower the barrier of entry for folks in that part of our territory.
Event pricing has been lowered for this ONE event to a flat $100 for a half-day and $190 for all day. We'll need 25-30 1/2 day sessions sold to break even at these prices so invite EVERYBODY to this low price opportunity to try us out and see what it is all about!
There are several reasonable hotels in the area and we have had good experiences at the Rodeway, (very economical, old building, updated interior, where M4theM stayed in the past) The Microtel, (5 minutes closer to the event site) and if you'd like a little more plush accommodations, the Comfort Inn is close by as well.
We gather at local restaurants/breweries the night before and the evening after the event and all participants are encouraged to join us. Friday location will be announced closer to the event date but Saturday after the event is always "To Dye For" food truck (food allergy compliant for those needing such) that parks at the "Lazy Hiker Brewery" downtown Franklin.
* Track time may be affected by event schedule, mechanical issues on track or weather. Track time is not guaranteed but we will do all we can to make sure everybody gets the amount they pay for.
