Thunderbolt at NJMP

Thunderbolt Raceway

About this event

Join the Northern NJ Region of PCA  for two great days at the Thunderbolt circuit at New Jersey Motorsports Park.  It is an excellent facility and a great venue.
NNJR is the largest and longest-running PCA High Performance Driver Education program in North America. This is our 54th year of Safe, Serious Fun!

The event is Friday/Saturday and will be an instructed event to include all student groups.The two full days are open to all driving enthusiasts and marques except open-wheeled cars. Non-PCA drivers are welcome.

No refunds will be granted after May 10. No event credits in MotorsportReg will be issued after May 17 . Any damage to the track or facility is the financial responsibility of the person who caused the damage.

You will need a MotorsportReg account to register.  If you don’t have one, you can create one at any time.  Just go back to the previous main page and click on the “Create Account” tab above the event list.  Dont forget to come back here and register. 

STUDENTS: Groups (Green, Yellow and Blue) are initially kept artificially low in number to ensure we have sufficient instructors.  You may be initially waitlisted, but sign up anyway.  Students will be accepted as instructors sign up.  Do not sign up for another group just to avoid being waitlisted.  Generally anyone who signs up on the first day eventually gets in.

For all attendees: If you are wait-listed, please check your status frequently, as the Registrar will move you off of the wait list as spots open up. With few exceptions, everyone who registers on Day 1 eventually gets accepted, just be patient.

For all participant's safety, NNJR has contracted for the highest level of EMT/ambulance support, which is a significant expense  Not all organizations provide this higher level of coverage. In addition, the track has increased their fees for 2024. We try to provide great events at fair prices but we have no choice but to pass along the increases.
Solo Drivers (White, Black, Red): $TBD
Instructed Drivers: (Green, Yellow, Blue): $TBD
