About this event

Come join the Golden Gate Lotus Club for this open track event at Laguna Seca Raceway: Sunday, July 15, 2018.  The predicted weather forecast is dry and sunny with a high of 80F.  You should sign up early to ensure yourself a spot.

You do not need to own a Lotus to attend this event.    Price is $260  for non-GGLC members and $240 for members.  You can purchase your GGLC yearly membership for $25 at time of signup and get the discount immediately. 

This event will be limited to 3 run groups.  Advanced Group will have open passing rules and Intermediate and Novice Groups will have restricted passing rules.   Beginners (drivers with no track experience) will share the track with the Novice group.

The groups will be classified as follows:

Beginner Group (sharing track with the Novice Group)

     This group is restricted to people who have zero track day experience in a car.  Beginner drivers will be required to take a COACH or Advance Driver as a passenger until a GGLC representative approves them for solo driving.  Beginner drivers will be on-track with the Novice  Group.  There will be a very limited number of Beginner spots available for this event.  Contact:  events@gglotus.og   Attn: Rita Guerrero (NEED A COACH)
