About this event
Doing Sportscar things with Sportscar friends
Join us on Tuesday August 6th, 2024 for a Track Day at The Ridge
Gates open at 8:00am with on-track activities from 9:00am - 5:00pm.
The Ridge is located in Shelton, WA, USA and offers 16 turns with 300ft of elevation along 2.47 miles, which includes a 50 foot plunge down the Ridge Complex.
This event is open to a variety of experienced drivers, however prior track experience is required before attending this event. If this is your first event at The Ridge, please sign up on the First Timer group.
We are offering drivers a chance to have an official transponder in their car while on track. We have 34 transponders available for rent or you can use your own. You are not required to run a transponder, however you will be grid at the back if you do not have a time.
Cars will grid from fastest to slowest using a traditional 15 minute session. This format will increase the chances of a uninterrupted lap. Based on your lap times, Speedy Goat will adjust the run groups throughout the day to better match run groups.
*Earlybird (Available for the first 30 drivers or February 28th, whichever comes first)

We know a few drivers would like to secure their vehicle number for all events. For this reason we would like to give you the option of reserving a number for the 2024 year! Those who purchase a number will have that number for all events in 2024 (if someone has a number in the event and you pay to reserve it after the fact, you will now be given that number and the other driver will be asked to select a new one).
To reserve your number, or purchase vehicle decals visit the below page after you register:
