Lightning Raceway at NJMP

About this event

Join NNJR for two great days at the Lightning circuit at New Jersey Motorsports Park.   It is an excellent facility and a great venue.

This event is currently planned to be an instructed event to include all student groups.

All attendees will be required to follow applicable Federal, State, and Local Government CDC COVID 19 guidelines which may include but not limited to the use of hand sanitizer, wearing of masks and sanitation procedures. Additional requirements and information regarding these compliance policies will be announced [and made available on the NNJR website]

The two full days are open to all driving enthusiasts and marques except open-wheeled cars. Non-PCA welcome.
For all participants safety, NNJR has contracted for the highest level of EMT/ambulance support, which is a significant expenseE  Not all organizations provide this higher level of coverage.

No refunds will be granted after April 10. No event credits will be issued after April 17.No partial (one day) registrations will be accepted for the core event.  We will conduct a "Track Tour" on Saturday April 24, starting at ~11:00 a.m. This is to give potential new DE drivers a "taste" of driving laps on the track led by an instructor at no more than higway speeds, helmets are not required.  Instructor certificiation/training will be held on Sunday April 25.  There are registration options for both of these activities.

Event polo shirts will be provided for each attendee, free!  These are provided by our very good friends and partners at Paul Miller Porsche.  Paul Miller Porsche

You will need a MotorsportReg account to register.  If you don’t have one, you can create one at any time.  Just go back to the previous main page and click on the “Create Account” tab above the event list.  Dont forget to come back here and register. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL THE STUDENT GROUPS AS WELL AS THE WHITE GROUP ARE SOLD OUT WITH AN EXTENSIVE WAITING LIST.  IF YOU ARE GREEN, YELLOW, BLUE OR WHITE, P.LEASE DO NOT SIGN UP, THERE ISN'T ANY POSSIBILITY THAT YOU WILL GET A SPOT AT THIS POINT.  WE DO HAVE SEVERAL EVENTS OPEN WITH SPACE FOR DRIVERS IN ALL GROUPS (PITT RACE, THUNDERBOLT, MID-OHIO), BOOKMARK OUR PAGE AND CHECK OUT THESE EVENTS.  https://www.motorsportreg.com/orgs/pca/northern-new-jersey/drivers-education

If you are wait-listed, please check your status frequently, as the Registrar will move you off of the wait list as spots open up. This is especially true for instructed groups as we can add additional students after additional instructors register. 

If you haven’t already opted in to receive event text messages from NNJR, please consider doing so at the end of the registration application. Note that in contrast to many organizations, our only use of this service is to send critical communications at the track e.g., schedule changes.  The PA cannot always be heard in the paddock. You can opt out at any time.

Event requirements

National PCA has mandated the use of a head and neck restraint device (HANS) when the car is equipped with a harness system. When there are two occupants, both driver and passenger seats must have similar safety equipment.

Participants must be at least 18 years old, and have a valid driver's license. Snell M or SA rated 2015 or 2020 FULLFACE helmets are required (SA Highly Recommended). Per the NJ State Police, 2010 helmets will not be permitted.

911 Cabriolets with pop-up roll hoops are not permitted at either NJMP track without additional rollover protection i.e., aftermarket roll hoop or cage.

Your car must pass a pre-event tech inspection.  Mandatory Tech Inspection information including requirements, location, date, forms can be found here:  Safety Tech Info and Form .    This information also will be distributed with the acceptance/confirmation email package. Out-of -Region participants may have their car inspected by their Region's tech inspectors as in the previous link.  All participants need to use the NNJR tech form.

You will need a credit card to register (this "holds" your registration, similar to making a reservation at a hotel). Your card will not be charged until a week or so before the event.

If your registration group shows "wait-listed",  register anyway, you are very likely to get accepted into the event.  Acceptance is based on the date and time logged on the registration system. If you are wait-listed, please check your status frequently, as the Registrar will move you off of the wait list as spots open up. This is especially true for instructed groups as we can add additional students after additional instructors register.
