Come join the Golden Gate Lotus Club for this open track event at the 3-mile Thunderhill Raceway Park (East Track) on Thursday, September 24,  2020.
All types of cars are welcome at our events. We will be running this event in the normal counter-clockwise direction WITH THE BYPASS in the morning and then switching after lunch to the REVERSE DIRECTION (Clockwise) WITH THE BYPASS for the afternoon. Yes, that's right.

Price is $175 for members and $195 for non-members.  You can become a GGLC member for $25 when you register and take the member discount immediately. 

This event will be divided into 3 different groups on track with 20 minute sessions.     The three run groups will be as follows: Advanced Group for experienced drivers with 15+ track days/racing experience or equivalent, Intermediate Group for drivers with at least 7 track days experience, and Novice Group for drivers with at least 1 track day experience.  Each group will have seven 20 minute sessions. Sign-up for whichever group is appropriate for your experience level. If you sign up for a particular group and decide at the track that you are not comfortable, then ask a GGLC official to switch groups, we can usually accommodate this.

Open wheeled cars will be allowed only in the Open Passing Group.

Due to the Coronavirus, there will be no Beginner Group since this would require us to put a coach in your passenger seat.  However, if you are a Beginner (zero track days experience) and would like to join, and you can find a qualified (GGLC-approved) coach from within your own family, then you may join by contacting the GGLC and we will add you to the Novice Group.  Note, there will still only be 3-4 Beginner slots available. 

We will run the event run rain or shine.  Cancellations before 9/10/2020 will receive a credit for a future track day which will be good for one year from the cancellation date.  Cancellations after 9/10/2020 will receive a credit ONLY if the event sells out.

We will not conduct a tech inspection on your car.   You are solely responsible for the safety of your car.  However, the Golden Gate Lotus Club reserves the right to reject any vehicle if we deem it unsafe or mechanically questionable. 

For drivers experiencing mechanical failures that result in dropping oil on the track, damage to track property such as broken brake markers, etc., and deployment of the fire truck which results in any additional charges to us for clean-up, repair to track property, etc., we will consider whether to pass on these additional costs to the responsible driver on a case-by-case basis.

Open top cars MUST have a roll bar that attaches at four locations on the body/chassis. Decorative, or "Style Bars" are not allowed. Factory installed roll-over protection including pop-up bars are allowed.  Drivers of open top cars must wear eye protection.

Passengers will not be allowed unless they drove to the track in the same car with you and must be at least 18 years old.

All cars must have numbers on both sides for Identification.  Pick any number.  Digits must be 6” tall minimum.

Please use the MotorsportReg website and your credit card to register and pay for your entry.
