Geoff Atkinson Memorial Driver School and Club Race: Please come join us for the Seventh Annual Geoff Atkinson Memorial Driver School and Club Race. We are planning a special celebration of our friend Geoff Atkinson - please come out and make this an event to remember. Our annual combined Driver School and Club race at Summit Point Raceway has become the NJ Chapter’s second tradition (behind our June race/school). Summit Point Raceway is in the rolling hills of the northeast corner of West Virginia near Harper’s Ferry. While West Virginia sounds like a long drive, for many NJ members it is, in fact, not any further driving time than to Palmer or Watkins Glen. The School and the Club Race divide track time between student run groups in the School and Race run groups. So, when you’re not on the track or in the classroom, you can take time to watch the racing. Our Saturday night barbeque at the track features great food and the chance to relax, compare what you learned on the track and swap stories.
Note: To attend you must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 (2 weeks post final injection) by the date of the event. We understand that this requirement may prevent some people from attending - we look forward to having you join us for a future event when the pandemic is under control.
Now confirmed: We will have 3 student groups for this school! Come on out for plenty of open track and small run groups!
Please note also that we will allow open face helmets (Snell2010 or newer) for this event.
