About this event

Join us for a weekend at NJMP Lightning. At this high-performance driver’s education event, the only speed limit is your own talent. Novice and intermediate drivers will have a volunteer in-car instructor to help you develop your car-handling skills – making you a better, safer driver on- and off-track. Never been on a racetrack before? This event includes Intro to DE on Friday.

About this track
Lightning is part of New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP). The track has 10 turns including 2 blind corners, and a long fast front straight. Located in Millville, NJ, NJMP is only about an hour from Philadelphia.
