9th Annual Motor State Challenge, Optima Search for the Ultimate Street Car Open Event
The 2017 Motor State Challenge will once again see a division of the competition with two model year groupings – 1988 and Earlier and 1989 and Later and a third category “Touring Group” with no year boundaries.
Manufacturers participating in the event will be competing in the “Manufacturer Category” and are not eligible for prizes and giveaways, however they will compete in the “Manufacturer’s Shootout” for the overall “Motor State Challenge Manufacturer Champion” trophy in both Vintage and Lake Model Classes. Manufacturers will be assigned spots using the same criteria as all other competitors; therefore they will be mixed within the established run groups. A “Manufacturer” is considered any competitor who designs, builds, and sells parts that enhance the performance and/or look of a vehicle. This includes, but is not limited to, all vendors selling products through Motor State Distributing.
We will do our best to match participants in groups with like skill level and speed.
GingerMan is a very open track with many safe run-off areas. It will still be stressed that you not let your speed exceed your skill level. With proper spacing and passing procedures, everyone will enjoy a safe outing with plenty of track time.
The GingerMan track day features road course hot laps without a speed regulating pace car. Timed sessions will be run for approximately 20 minutes each. Session duration is at the discretion of the SCCA race director. Since we're not limiting speed in the time trial groups, we will limit track time to prevent heat related malfunctions and failures such as brake fade and excessive oil/coolant temps.
Road Course Timing – This year competitors will be timed using AMB Transponders. If you have an AMB Transponder mounted in your vehicle, you’ll need to include your transponder number during your registration process. If you do not have a transponder, we will have units on site for use. If you are interested in purchasing a transponder for your car/truck feel free to contact us. We have them in stock along with the mounting clips.
