About this event
Doing Sportscar things with Sportscar friends
Join us on Monday July 8th, 2024 for a Track Day at AREA 27 with Timing Transponders (Lap Timing)
Gates open at 8:00am with on-track activities from 9:00am - 5:00pm.
Area 27 is a world class circuit that offers 16 turns on 4.83 km of paved glory and is located only 5 minutes east of Oliver, BC.
This event is open to a variety of experienced drivers, however prior Area 27 track experience is required before attending this event. . If this is your first event at Area 27, please sign up on the First Timer group.
If you do not have any prior track experience (Area 27 or other) you may still sign up, but you will need to attend at least one track day at Mission Raceway or VIMC prior to this event. Please see www.SpeedyGoat.ca for additional event dates.
We are offering up to 40 drivers a chance to have an official transponder in their car while on track. While this event will NOT be a competitive Time Trials event we have an opportunity to operate similarly to our typical Time Trials events. We will grid cars from fastest to slowest using a traditional 20 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.
