Please join us for Sound Off in June at Laguna Seca - a Tribute to Jan Orm

Please join us on June 9, 2021 (Wednesday) at Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca.  We are operating at the MAXIMUM SOUND LIMIT of 105 dba’s.  The track will be HOT from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. With this being the closest thing to unlimited sound, this event should book up fast so don’t procrastinate on that registration process, sign in today! We welcome all makes of street cars and race style cars.  No open fenders.

We will have great weather and a ton of track time.  We hope to reintroduce passenger rides as we ease our way out of the pandemic. Our clientele and friends usually bring Shelby’s, Mustangs, Cobra’s, Corvette’s, Camaro’s, Porsche, BMW, Honda, Subaru, Mazda’s just to name a few. We are dedicating this event to a past member and dear friend Jan Orme; who passed away in January.  Jan loved Laguna Seca and he could be seen running a #99 1966 Flared out Mustang Coupe track car or a #99 Dodge Neon SCCA ITA race car.
