Thunderhill Open Track Day May 18, 2010

Thunderhill Raceway Park

About this event


Come join the Golden Gate Lotus Club for this open track event at Thunderhill Raceway on Tuesday, May 18, 2010

This event is not open to first time track drivers.  You must have at least 2 prior track days experience, racing background, or completed a racing driver's school before you can enter this event.  There are a number of track day organizations that are designed for training new drivers.  Hooked On Driving is one group that we recommend for beginners to gain experience.  There are others as well.

 You do not need to own a Lotus to attend this event. We run our events totally non-profit and you will not find a better price for a full day on the track. The price for this event is $145 for GGLC members, and 165 for non-members.   Additional drivers sharing a car are $50.  You can become a GGLC member for $25. 

This event will be divided into 3 different types of groups on track; Novice, Intermediate, Advanced.   The Novice and Intermediate sessions will have passing restricted to certain areas.  The Intermediate passing rules will be slightly more liberal than the Novice rules.   The Advanced sessions are open passing. 

Each driver can sign up as either Novice/Intermediate or Intermediate/Advanced.  Novice/Intermediate drivers will not be allowed in the Advanced sessions.  Intermediate/Advanced drivers will not be allowed in the Novice sessions.   If you sign up for a particular group and decide at the track that you are not comfortable, ask a GGLC official to switch groups and it will probably be no problem.

You must have a minimum of 2 track days experience to sign up for the Novice/Intermediate sessions.  You must have a minimum 15 track days experience to sign up for the Intermediate/Advanced sessions.

 This event will run rain or shine.  Cancellations before 05/08/10 will receive a credit for a future track day which will be good for one year from the cancellation date.  Cancellations after 05/08/10 will receive a credit ONLY if the event sells out.

We will not conduct a tech inspection on your car.   You are soley responsible for the safety of your car.

Open top cars must have a roll bar. Factory installed roll bars are OK. Open wheeled cars will be allowed in the open passing group.
